So, how do You like to connect the box ? Only now and then or always ? Do You use a cable ? What image has the DB ?

Many questions but we need to know more to help !

Plug the db into a spare ethernet port on your router.

if you dont have any spare ports get a 4 port ethernet switch for a tenner to give you extra ports.

Once you connect your DM500 to the 4 port ethernet switch (as suggested by Analoguesat)
You can contact your box with your laptop via the router (if it has a wireless).
Alternatively you can use a simple LAN cable.
