    I am trying to network my HR20 and it passes all the tests except it won't connect to the internet. I have it hard wired to a linksys WRT54GL. I have tried rebooting the unit and disabling all my firewalls and still nothing. Any suggestions?

    Besure not to use any form of encryption. HR20 does not support it.

    Post your IP stats on the Router, PC, and HR20.

    The Hr20 shows up on the router client screen but it will not connect to internet. I do not know what you mean by IP stats. If you mean the IP addresses I won't post them for security reasons.

    Does it state that you can connect to the network?

    Sorry I just saw your post above.

    Are you using any filter to keep devices from using the internet?
    IE like mac or IP address filters?

    What's to hide?
    Your LAN IP's are in either the 192 or 10 private ranges, as are most home networks.

    Your gateway is your router, which is also private.
    Your WAN IP is publicly available already and is assigned from a pool, unless you're running a static for some reason, and I don't need to see that anyway.

    DNS servers are public as well.

    Two factors get you on the net.
    Default Gateway and DNS.


    Anyway, good luck. :rolleyes:

    Isn't encryption only needed for a wireless connection as hard-wired directly to router not necessary?

    Is DCHP Server enabled in router setup:computer: :scratch:, are you connected to cable broadband or some other connection? Is UPnP enabled?

    Check to see if UPnP is enabled. From my router menu (I have a Linksys as well, see my sig) go to administration then management.

    Phoenix,...
    Reset the HR20 networking to default. This will clear any settings and pick up new ones from the router. Anytime you make changes to the router you will need to do this.

    I have an update I have the HR20 connected to the internet and still can not enable media sharing. However not a big problem since media sharing is not that important to me. I think I saw somewhere on this forum that VOD requires an internet connection and that will be a feature I want when it becomes available.

    Yes the majority of VOD you will need a internet (broadband) connection to download the programs. Some of the VOD programs will be pushed to the SAT's by DIRECTV. They will push the most viewed programs.
