The DirectTV Ethernet Coaxial Adaptor (DECA) for your broadband service is designed to connect your home Internet network to the satellite receiver. The adaptor receives the signal transmitted from your service provider and converts it into data-specific information that can be read over the Internet. Whether you are setting up your broadband service in multiple rooms around the home or office, installing the DECA broadband adaptor is straightforward and only requires connecting a few cables.
