I recently moved into a new house, and it took me about a month to get internet service installed, which was yesterday. Directtv went ahead and installed at my house without internet. I have an HR34 with one client and an HR21 and HR23. Although there was no internet connection, whole home seemed to work and there was consolidated playlist available to the HR34 and the genie client. The house is wired for a lan. At the HR34 location, there is a wall jack that is connected to a switch that feeds the tv/blue ray player and a/v receiver. As it turns out the guys that installed the tv and a/v equipment also connected the HR34 to the LAN via ethernet. As I understand it, this is not the correct way to connect to the internet for the HR34, but it seemed harmless at the time. For reasons having to do with my ISP provider (sticking a router behind a router), I decided to change the subnet for my lan from 192.168.1.x to 192.168.2.x. Don't know if this was really needed, but I did it. After the internet was activated, I tested the HR34 and discovered it was not connecting. I noticed it's IP address was 192.168.1.3. I thought, ah, I just need to change the subnet to 192.168.2.x. So I did and the genie lost contact with the server. Rebooting the client didn't seem to help. Adding a client didn't work either (no prompt for the add code, just a "can't find server" screen). I changed the server's address back to what it was, rebooted everything and the client came back but whole home is not working. Recordings on the other DVRs don't show up and no other receivers show up at connected at the HR34. I checked the IP address on one of the other receivers and it is showing 192.168.2.xx. I would guess this is the problem. I assume I need to get a tech out to install the supported internet connection kit, but is there was way to get the whole home setup back and working? The IP address for the server is listed as static. Is there a way to use DHCP which the client will pick up?
