    Greetings gentlemen,

    I have a quick question. I am purchasing a set top box for someone soon. They just had the internet installed and are getting a router. They only use a tablet without an Ethernet port. This poses problems for setting up the router. Here is where my question comes into play...

    Is it possible to hook up the set top box like a Revue directly with the ethernet cable and then set up the router through the Chrome browser in Google TV?

    Tricky situation but I am thinking this might work. Any feedback is appreciated.

    I haven't done that and although it sounds like it would work, I would just take a laptop with me and install the router. If you don't own a laptop or can't get one, try the Google TV box.

    Yes you can use the revue to configure the router. It ships with an ethernet cable and a wireless adapter. Should be able to just plug it into the router and grab a dhcp address. Should also be able to configure the wireless to connect to the router too. After that just go to the management Web Page.

    If it's a wireless router you can enter the IP via the tablet
