I recieved my TV2Moro reciever (an IPTV device) and connected it to my Linksys router with a ethernet cable.

But I want to use the reciever in another location in my residence, and a physical connection is not an option. (different levels).

So what do I need between this receiver (upstairs) and the router (downstairs) to talk to each other?

(the reciever does not have any USB options, just a single ethernet port)

you need a WIFI bridge, something like

connect it to the ethernet port on the media device, and set it to link to the routers WIFI.

I know you mentioned a Physical connection is not an option, but have you considered powerline adapters?
Basically they offer LAN over your existing power home grid.

if not possible, I think the only solution would be a wireless bridge.

As you might notice this is a rather expensive solution in comparison to the powerlines.

As @DeltaR7 mentioned , powerline is another option. The only reason not to use it would be its performance, in many old apartments & houses the performance suffers - it depends a lot on the quality of the mains. But then again, the quality of WIFI is variable too :)
