    I have a Linksys WRT310N and my HR22-100 is connected through a Homeplug adapter in the living room. I have internet connectivity, no problem. The issue is with my HR21-700 in my living room upstairs. I am trying to connect with a second Homeplug adapter upstairs and I can't get connected to the internet. The Homeplug adapter is plugged directly into the wall (not a surge protector), I get both green lights on the adapter but can't get connected to the internet. When I go a scan of the network on the WRT310N, it does not "see" the HR21-700 upstairs. When I do the "Connect Now" process, it says that I am connected to the network but not the internet.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    It can take some time before the DirecTV servers recognize that the receiver is connected.

    go into your advanced settings (under network settings) and make sure your gateway is set to the I.P. of your router and your dns is the I.P. of your modem.
