Secondarily I will also do want to get it all wireless to my lappy with the reciever manager after I get this FW/connection resolved. That will be handy. :-)
I think you are not understanding how the 2700 "networks".
As krik says, Receiver Manager Software is only RS232, no 2700 settings or menu's or adjustments can be done via ethernet.
Your computer will, at best, see the 2700's IP #. There is no control of your 2700 from your computer through your network.
The 2700 can see WMP or Twonky type servers via the OSM > Net/USB > PC
For wireless you might be able to use an ethernet "dongle" that could then communicate with your router over WiFi, or wire 2700 to your router then make your router a "wireless bridge" to another router.
But these are adding in some major possible connection issues.
I'd suggest you keep the 2700 and computer wired to begin with.
Then maybe try your laptop or desktop computer running the server (WMP, Twonky) as WiFi.
The 2700 networking is very slow & klunky even wired, so I'd suggest you start all wired and then get adventurous.
