    The DVR does have 2 ports. IN the guide it says to use the top one. I could certainly try using the bottom one if need be

    Have you tried the other network jack?
    There is a primary and a dysfunctional secondary. This works sometimes but isn't the same as the primary.

    These can sometimes get swapped internally, so it's worth trying the other one.

    Okay will try the bottom one. After trying the bottom 1 it's the same result.

    If that doesn't work try putting in a manual DNS IP in the advanced network setup for your DVR and/or WCCK.

    That's never worked for me, but hey...

    Once you've gone into advanced you've lost all of the auto configuration and would need to go back to restoring network defaults to regain it, followed by a rebooting.

    We already determined it's a DNS issue, why would that not work if that is indeed the case? Would help to know what number is in there already at least. It could be a DNS issue on the router or WCCK also. Just going one by one.

    Why? good question, and maybe it is caused by the receiver not finding it, or the router not reporting it, but I doubt it's the WCCK, since it doesn't seem to have anything that would stop it from passing through it.

    That's a default local IP for when DHCP fails.

    That would be its internal IP address and it no longer is connected to your router.

    This is the receiver/DVR right?

    I'm not one to give up too easily, but there should be a common plan here to follow.

    Lots of help, but not all going the same direction.

    You are being too vague in what you are doing with so much going on here. Did you change the DNS server or not yet?

    This would be good to clear up. Are you setup for SWM? When you said you had it working directly connected did that mean you had an ethernet cable going from the receiver to the router or the receiver to the CCK-W?

    Yes I have the swm, yes there was an ethernet cable going from the router to the receiver. Also I don't have a white box instead of a small rectangle piece.
