The Dish Network User's Resource
DishCOMM allows enabled receivers to share one phone line connection. Adding a phone outlet or wireless adapter is not necessary as it works over the home's electrical wiring. It does not eliminate or replace the phone line requirement.
DishCOMM may not work through power strips or some UPS boxes.
Enabled on the ViP622 with L401 software and the ViP211 with L436. Per the Sept 2009 Retailer Chat Recap, all ViP receivers now have DishCOMM technology activated.

DishCOMM uses HomePlug 1.0. It may be used in place of the ethernet jack by adding an adapter at the router. Detailed discussion at HomePlug built into the 622 (SatelliteGuys). This should substitute for the phone connection.
