    I sit possible to share the Apple TV's internet connection with another device (like my Dish Network receiver) though a wired connection?

    I can save a couple dollars a month if I have my Dish box hooked up to the internet, but I don't have a wired connection anywhere near it. I have an Airport Express plugged in nearby, and shared the wired connection from that, but lately it's been broadcasting speeds about 1/12 of what it should, even after reboots/resets, so I'm thinking it might be toast.

    My only other chances so getting internet to the Dish box are my Apple TV and my Playstation 3.

    Your best option is to get a Ethernet over powerline adapter
