    If you are using a Sling adapter then you must have the Vip722 or Vip612 receiver, either way the receiver has to be connected to the internet. Best way is a direct ethernet cable to the receiver from your router, If you can't do that then you will need the Sling link turbo or a wireless USB adapter. The sling link Turbo is better, all does is allow you to use house electrical for get your internet to another location. It plucgs into the wall socket near your router, you connect and eitehrnet cable to it, it then runs the signal through the electrical wires, and your receiver will pick up the signal through it's plug. So you do not need it only to help get internet to your receiver.
