WAP Connection

Will the wireless receiver work as well if the WAP is connected to the Ethernet cable coming from the wall as it will if the WAP is connected to an Ethernet port on the router? Will it still work "wirelessly"?

UVERSE. Cisco wireless reciever freezing after 5 seconds. Netgear R7000 incompatibility??

I replaced my AT&T WAP with a Netgear R7000 to get better range. Internet works great, but I just added a Cisco wireless reciever and it keeps freezing up. Reception on the reciever is 4 bars so its not reception. Could it be that my NVG589 modem isn't working for the TV broadcast through my R7000?
