    I never set the IP addresses for my receivers I let them get their own.

    If the GenieGO and DECA are connected to the Linksys, the lights should turn blue after reboots.
    However if the AE is what your PC's or IOS devices are connecting to and that is giving out a different IP address, the wireless devices won't see the GenieGO box.

    Linksys usually defaults to 192.168.1.x and AE is 10.x. if I recall.
    So that is an issue

    First step is blue lights on GenieGO box and DVRs that see the internet

    ok. I'm moving wires, rebooting, and trying to cook dinner.


    but If I'm understanding all the help correctly the DECA and GenieGo need to be on the same wireless network, as well as hardwired into the same router. My problem is that I have a Sonos too, and it needs to be on the same router as the wireless network i am using.

    or at least thats what I think.

    You can use the Linksys as a switch as long as you turn off the DHCP server on it. That way only the AE will be giving out IP addresses to your devices. If you had devices that got IP addresses from the Linksys, you'll need to reboot them so they grab an IP address from the AE.

    Perform a 30 second reset on the GenieGo.

    You would need to repeat OOH set up for the "new" router

    I can't seem to set it up.. GenieGo apps to recognize my router...

    hmm would that be the AE? or the Linksys?

    Why isn't there a network port on the GenieGo to make all these "on the same network issues" go away

    Argh!!! So, I will have to wire the modem to the linksys and get in and set it up that way ?

    i turned linksys wireless off to make this all work years ago.

    If you are using the Linksys just as a switch, just keep the wireless off on it and be sure the DHCP server on it is turned off as well. You should be able to log into the Linksys and set it up to obtain an IP address from the AE or you can assign it a static IP address within the same subnet as the AE.
