    actually an Airport Express can be used as a wireless router as well. What this comes down to is to make sure to have one DHCP server active in your network

    Yeah, but I was saying how the OP was using it. And it is not a wireless modem in any case.

    Ok, so I went with plan B. I moved the Xfinity (comcast) wireless router behind the Airport Extreme and all is good.
    and is your Comcast security modem working as well

    Any word on if iOS 7 has killed the out of home access? The Genie App still works but my Out of Home Access has quit working and my home networking setup hasn't changed since I've originally set it up. The only difference is installing iOS7 so just wondering if anyone else is on iOS7 and having issues using out of home access and checking or testing network connection always says "failed". Oh, I also had to re-activate my phone to the Genie Go after I did the update but that wasn't a big deal.

    Make sure you're running the latest version of the GG app under iOS 7. I'm currently running 3.0.037. I was streaming OOH on my iOS 7 iPhone4 about an hour ago, while waiting for an oil change. :)

    OOH streaming on the GG app 3.0.037 is working under iOS7 for me as well.

    Thanks Guys - yes, I'm running 3.0.037 version of GG. I'll have to figure out why it quit working then when I get home. Like I said nothing has changed at home and when I check my network connection it says "Test Failed. Please try again" - So I was thinking maybe it was iOS7.

    I'd try reinstalling the GG app and resetting my Genie by pushing and holding the red button for 30 seconds.

    So I've been going through the same thing the last 3 - 4 days or so... I use the PC Genie Go app to setup my Out of Home access. Once I do that everything goes great and my Out of Home access is setup and working from PC & Wireless devices. The NEXT day I try to access Out of Home access from all the same devices only to get a message that Out of Home Access is not setup. I re-do the processs to re-set everything back up and you get the picture... I originally set everything up when Out of Home access first came out months ago and was working fine for months, then been having problems the last week or so. My router - etc., hasn't changed since I originally setup the out of home access and my genie go is setup with static ip. Only thing I can think of as the issue is I auto reboot my router every day at like 4am, but that has been setup well before I ever used out of home acces. Any thoughts?

    This in a recent e-mail from DIRECTV




    If you access GenieGO™ through an iPhone or iPad, please be sure to update your GenieGO™ App before upgrading to iOS 7. This will ensure no interruption to your service. You can update your App anytime through the iTunes App Store.



    If you have already upgraded to iOS 7, you will need to update the current GenieGO™ App on your mobile device and then re-register the device as new. Unfortunately, previously downloaded content will need to be re-downloaded.

    We apologize for this inconvenience.

    Sincerely,
    DIRECTV

    ok so I've read through several GenieGo threads can't find what I'm asking, or can't search to find what I'm asking.

    My iPad is a work issued one so it secures quite often, especially when 1-2 min elapses.

    It seems that my downloads to the GenieGo stop or freeze when my iPad locks it self.

    It also seems that uploads from GenieGo to my iPad stop or freeze when my iPad locks itself.

    I cannot prevent the iPad from locking automatically.

    Any suggestions how to make downloads and uploads become un-interuppted?

    Other than getting around the lock ups, no. The GenieGo should not require the app to be open when it's transcoding, so I am not sure what the Upload and Download means. It's one or the other (depending on which device is receiving or delivering) to get shows onto the iPad. There really isn't any uploading from the iPad to the GenieGo.

    The current iPad version (with IOS7) tends to load a second or third one after screen lock. Does it lock when you're watching a stream or a program? If not, just select a few downloads and start playing a program while the others complete downloading.

    Edit: Something is wrong in posting . . . Lax, you should be able to delete your own posts.

    I'll take a closer look at it later this weekend. I'm loading up the ipad(s) and mac book air for the upcoming Hawaii trip.

    Does the GenieGo stream over a wired connection yet? I'm having problems with the old Directb2PC program and want to replace it but use a wired connection to my desktop. WIFI is OK for my laptop but I have no WIFI on my desktop machine.

    Yes, it'll work over ethernet to your desktop.

    Are they any closer to allowing streaming over 4G?
