Viewing CCTV wirelessly?

DVR is Swann SWDR 41425H-HIS, presently working with LAN cable to router then wirelessly to PC. Looking at possibility of wirelessly connecting DVR to router, Googling comes up with: http://forums.securityinfowatch.com/showthread.php?12501-How-do-I-make-my-DVR-Wireless telling me it should work with this: (Amazon.com product link shortened) since it requires no drivers. DVR manual says USB port is for mouse or USB drive, no mention of anything else so the big question is will the Netgear adapter worK? Alternatively could I use an old ISP supplied router connected via LAN cable to DVR by setting it up as a bridge? That looks a bit complicated and would hope for a simpler way.

While I have no direct experince with that DVR, it would appear that its USB port is not meant for networking. You may want to consider an Ethernet-to-WiFi adapter such as this one:

Per Kenny:

No experience with DVR, but if the cams are regular IP cams I would hope that each cam has a web page built in to it and that web page could be accessed either by a browser or any one of many dedicated IP cam access utilities.

Doubtful. Just because you have a "(hardware) compatible interface" doesn't mean the software will USE that interface to support a particular functionality.
E.g., each of my NAS devices (disk-on-a-wire) have USB A connectors. So, your device could conceivably plug into them. I'd be very confident stating that it wouldn't "add a wireless capability" to them. Just like plugging a mouse into that same connector won't give me "mouse capabilities" (they wouldn't make sense on a NAS device -- no "display"!)

You can explore "power line modems/bridges". Think of them as *wired* extension cables that use the wiring in your home to transfer the data.
You might also be able to use a LWAP (light-weight access point) for the same job. (the powerline devices would be more "turn key")
