    Here is my situation. Can someone help me out?

    I have my HR20 in the basement networked through a Iogear powerline connection and everything is working fine.

    I now would like have myy second HR20 networked. I'm going to buy a network switch, plug it into the powerline, and then run cat5 to each HR20.

    How will this change my set-up? Will they each have different settings?

    just install the switch and plug in the cables.. It's the simplest setup (and most reliable)
    I'm running 3 HRs that way, works great..

    If you are assigning the HR20's with a Static IP Address, just make sure they both have a different number in 4th position of the IP Address. You should be just fine then.

    I've hooked up the network switch and now neither is working.

    I've turned off the firewall on my main PC

    On connection status I get everything to pass except at the end the internet fails and gives me a error 22 message.

    I can connect my laptop to the switch and it works fine

    Have tried "restore defaults" and rerunning "network setup" in network on HR's?

    Yes, same message "not connected (22)" What's weird to me is that on my router settings I can see the HR20

    It gives the mac address and IP address
