    There are a number of routers that just don't play nice with the WCCK, 2Wires from AT&T and CenturyTel come to mind. I hope they work this out, 'get a new router and keep the reciept just in case' is not a customer friendly resolution!

    What is wrong exactly? I don't have a WCCK so I can't help much with it. As far as router brand that is exactly why I went with Cisco. I knew it would be the most compliant and have virtually every option available to me. It's even the cheapo $80 Cisco Valet.

    Why is the router blocking ports on wireless connections and not wired? The OP said everything worked when connected via ethernet cable. Seems like the router should treat wired and wireless clients the same way in that respect...

    2Wire from AT&T shouldn't be on your list. It was used during field testing and the firmware was written so it would work with the 2Wire. Oh by the way, that is exactly what I've been using with the WCCK for several years with zero problems.

    i hope my wired and wireless are not. think about it like this. wireless signal to your network can be accessed outside your home. wired well it would not be as easy.

    That doesn't makes any sense to me too.

    Ok well I keep thinking of my setup which is not wireless. It's possible it has different ports blocked for wired vs wireless do to security concerns. So maybe using DMZ is the way to go.

    I also just called DirecTV and asked about wired vs wireless CCK and he said the preferred option is wired for a more stable connection. I really wish I had a WCCK though so I could be more help.

    I'm still a rookie at port forwarding on DTV systems so I'm learning along here too on some stuff.

    Actually the only thing I have ever had to port forward on is a DirecTV DVR for the TV Apps.

    Check online in your account for a self installed CCK. They used to be about $25.

    I'm not paying for something I don't need and is less stable anyway. If they want to give me one for free I'll take it, but not otherwise.

    I get the paying part, but since I have a WCCK, I don't the "less stable" part.

    The 2Wire 310 and 2701HG-D are listed as possibly problematic. Which gateway are you using out of curiosity?

    Wireless dropouts and such. And also interference with my Cisco router. Lack of range probably on some receivers depending on distance from the WCCK.

    These were all points brought up by the guy I just talked to at DirecTV.

    its not unstable. ports 1701, 8080, and8843 have to be open for inbound and outbound traffic. i assume we use these ports due to the amount of traffic we create. and other than 1701 the other 2 are not as commonly open

    'Less stable' is simplified way of saying 'It may not work with your setup, depending on your router' methinks.

    The stability issue is in terms of wireless signal quality and range, not the actual device itself.

    After 3 years, I'm not sure how much is still relevant.

    I keep both my receivers and router is defaults, and everything here works fine. This is sort of why I question a complaint about 2Wire.
    ZERO ports forward, and DHCP for everything.
    Network services never have anything but the <202> error, and in fact that means things are working.

    Someone else with another type of router, may need to do some of those [these] things, so it's a YMMV.

    Maybe you should start a new thread for your issue? 22 subcode is a DNS error FWIW...
