Does your modem have WiFi? If so try this: Newegg.com - IOGEAR GWU627 Universal Wifi Adapter for Internet Ready TV, Game Consoles & Ethernet-Enabled Devices

There may be better/cheaper options...I've never used this one or any for that matter, just knew they existed as an option for you.

Don't take life too seriously -- no one gets out alive. Plus, who wants to arrive to the hereafter in pristine condition wearing a suit and tie?
I want to slide in sideways, worn out, used up, hair a mess, clothes tattered, & screaming, "Whooo! What a ride!"

The router connects to the modem. From there get an access point and connect it to the AV Recv and program it for bridge mode. Bridge it to the wireless in the router.
