What exactly are you hoping to accomplish by doing this? If it's to diplex OTA you would be better off using the seperate coax for the OTA signal and keep the DECA and SWM satellite signals on the same cable.
I had the extra coax cables already sitting there installed at all receiver locations and wanted to avoid breaking into my SWM wiring and adding band stop filters at my splitter and HR20-100. The broadband DECA comes with a power supply and I could get them very cheap on eBay. Also all thrr extra cables were terminated right where my router sits so it was easy to install.
Over on the DBSforum they mentioned that the new H25/HR25 don't have ethernet ports so all you can use is DECA which is built in for internet access. So since I will have to tap into my SWM wiring in the future when I get a newer receiver I decided to just install DECA into my SWM setup like it was designed. I will install RG6 over to my splitter from my router. I didn't want to hog my wireless bandwidth so not bothering with the wireless DECA.
So disregard my original question.
