Yes you can plug your ethernet cable into your router (this would not be wireless)

Whats your PC IP address and whats your Dreambox IP address?

you will have to set the dreambox ip address that correspond to the router. ie is the router default ip address is 192.168.2.1 then your dreambox will have to be 192.168.2.2 or you can put any digit at the last one as long as its within the range on the router.

what ever the ip address of your pc is make the one on your dreambox change the end digit to some thing else

example if your pc is

pc 192.168.1.100

dreambox 192.168.1.101

dreambox ip is
192.168.0.132
my setup is

Router 192.168.0.1

PC 192.168.0.2

Dreambox 192.168.0.5

Connect dreambox to router.

On PC press start, run

type:- cmd

Type:- ping 192.168.0.5

The PC should be talking to your dreambox

Give it a try m8
