    We got a new verizon wireless DSL/router so I had to go around and reconnect everything with the new information. I have litterally spent the passed 5 hrs trying to find a solution to my problem and can't figure it out. I have seen numerous people having similar/same issues but their solutions are not computing with my fried brain.

    When going through the prompts on the DVR/CCK on the tv i can get all the way up to Finding and choosing my network. It flat out refuses to accept my security key, it keeps saying its wrong but it isnt.

    The WPA Key: is 16 alpha numerical characters no special character and all caps.

    I have seen posts saying you can get to a CCK gui to add the key but the instructions are so unclear and i need them explained as if i were a 5 year old.

    Can someone please help????? I really don't want to have to call tech support.

    I'm sorry that I am away from the PC bit if you go to the directv general forum, go to the thread for first looks and find the wireless cck first look... There are instructions there.

    I never got mine to take. I ended up using direct ethernet. Sorry, that is not helpful. But true.

    Check your WPA mode in your router. Start with WPA2 Personal, and try other modes (WPA/WPA2 Personal) if that doesn't work.

    Also try testing with a shorter password to see if it's a length problem. I've seen some cases where devices don't implement the password properly.

    Some people are connecting the WCCK to a PC in order to make it work with longer passwords:

    Winters,...
    Another solution, preferred if it can be done, is to connect the Genie via ethernet. Or use a wired CCK somewhere else in the line.
