I can't connect my 2 hr24 dvrs to the internet. I do not have whole home My setup: I have comast cable, this is plugged into a comcast modem. the modem is connected to a netgear wnr2000 router. I have connected the dvrs to my home network with powerline adapters. Since I don't have a phone line, connecting to the internet is the only way I can really order on demand. This used to work until my old netgear router died and I replaced it with a new one. running default setup under the menu gives me an IP address which starts with 169., this is what happens if it can't get a reading from the router. I setup it up manually thusly, 192.168.1.55 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.1 192.168.1.1 The gateway and dns server numbers i got by using ipconfig at the command prompt of my computer Says it connects to the network but can't connect to the internet. I have a bluray player in the living room with the other HR24, for grins I took the powerline cable off the dvr and plugged it into the bluray plater. Same thing. Message shows connected to router but could not "resolve dns" Directv tech support was at a loss I called Netgear support via their email support. After two weeks where they mainly had me check out the adapters, etc they are now "researching the issue" and will get back to me. The router is setup as the dhcp server I have tried a multitude of things, but none of them work. port forwarding didn't work I also tried using the routers gateway but the numbers for comast dns, didn't work Hopefully somebody here can help.
