Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.
Sorry to hear you’re having trouble.
While it would be theoretically possible to use a wifi connection on the laptop and bridge the ethernet connection on the laptop to the dvr, thi sis a bad idea.
It would be slow, it would be interrupted, the laptop would slow down, and the laptop would have to be on 24x7. You would also encounter problems with connecting to the dvr remotely.
If you can't get a hardwired connection to the dvr, then your best option is to use either a
powerline ethernet adapter: http://amzn.to/1RTU0ju
or wifi bridge: http://amzn.to/1VE1hee
Do you need more help with this?
