    I replaced my Time Warner Cable leased modem (Ubee) with a Motorola that I purchased.

    I have an Ethernet cable plugged into a Cinema Kit that the installer set up about 15 months ago.

    He ran two cables from the SWIM-16 - one into the DVR and one into the CK.

    I tried resetting my HR-34 but I still can't connect to the Internet.

    I have the HR-34, HR-34 and 3 H35 receivers with Whole Home DVR.

    Any suggestions on how I can correct this?

    Is it definitively due to swapping out the cable modem?

    Thanks very much.

    Your modem has a router as part of it right?
    Resetting the receiver network defaults should clear the old settings and then you can use the "connect now" option and it should work.
    You'll need to reset the network defaults on all the receivers.

    And in case it's simply an error;

    I assume you mean 3 H25 receivers?

    Yes it has four LAN ports along with built-in AC wireless.

    Is the option to reset the receiver network defaults under Settings -> Network Setup? I don't see an option to reset defaults.

    I should do all this from the HR34, correct?

    Much thanks.

    Yep. if you don't have that option is because your receiver has never been set up to connect

    If the HR34 is the only box not connected to the internet, yes.

    But if any of the H25 receivers show not connected to the internet, then you will have to repeat the procedure and run the same network setups from their UIs as well.
