The specifications for this model indicate that it has an Ethernet port, so you would use an Ethernet cable from the AirPort Exreme to the Samsung.
Be sure to get a CAT5e or CAT6 type cable.
Any computer / electronics superstore will have what you need.

Bob I am Trying to Hook up an Airport extreme to a Directv Hr24-200. My connection method is a Cinema Connect kit -Wireless also known and a wifi broadband deca. everytime I try to hook it up. I get the Wifi Deca to reconize my internet but after selecting it it goes back to the same screen I have 10 items hooked to the Internet in my home that are working well I just can nont get this item to work. I have called Directv and spend 2and a half hours troubleshooting with no resolve, there seems to be a lack of communincation between my wifi deca and my Airport extreme

DirecTV wireless is WAY behind the times.
If the name of your wireless network contains any special characters like an apostrophe, question mark, asterisk, etc.....DirecTV will not be able to connect.
For example, if the name of your current wireless network is:
DTVTECHY's Wireless Network.......then you need to change it to something like.......
In order words, use all normal characters and numbers, with no spaces.

Try removing the space from the name of the network.
I assume that you are using WPA2 Personal security or WPA/WPA2 Personal. Try the other setting than what you have set currently.
After that, I'm out of ideas.....other than mentioning the possibility of a defective DTV device.

The directv device isnt anything other then
a dummy system. it cant controle anything. if the internet is there we will connet if it is not then it will not connect
PS look at my name before you start talking about directv devices cause i was a member of the Networking department for directv before they merged it with tech i am asking on a customers behave.
