    I have searched quite a bit this weekend, but I can't seem to get a definitive answer on this one, so here goes. I now have the dreaded:

    "Your computer was able to connect to your device, but the connection was interrupted. (Error 36)

    Please try connecting again."

    My 722k is connected via ethernet cable. The DISH Remote Access seems to work fine with my Android phone on either wifi or 3G. On some computers in the home I get the above message, but it works on others.

    So far, I have tried:

    1) Resetting the receiver.

    2) Resetting the broadband connection.

    I am using Comodo and even when I have disabled it I still cannot connect. I have tried this with both Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. I am connected via DSL and a speed check shows:
    Download Speed: 8665 kbps (1083.1 KB/sec transfer rate)
    Upload Speed: 735 kbps (91.9 KB/sec transfer rate)

    Can anybody suggest what my next step should be?

    Raise the upload speed - the speed is limiting streaming video from your 722k.

    I'm having the same issue. I've read through all 11 pages of this thread with no success

    My wife and i have tried to access our sling unit from 2 different ipads and 2 different android phones. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the Dish program with no success.
    I spoke with another Dish rep last night who will be sending our 4th sling adapater this coming week, we've been through two 722 receivers.

    I've got Charter high speed internet (16mbps IIRC) connected to my home router running the latest flavor of DD-WRT.

    I can use my ipad to tell the receiver to play programs on my tv, but when i try to use my ipad to view content from my receiver i get the message that i should connect my ipad and receiver to the internet

    Around page 3 or 4 Tony suggested reconnecting to the broadband, renaming the reciever then doing "web activation". My "web activation" fails.

    I do not get any red light on my sling adapter.

    No red light = time to get the adapter replaced.

    I am in the same spot as upjeeper. I have both a 722 and a 722k. The USB button is grayed out on both. Sling Adapter Status: none Sling Adapter Version: ADEAZAAM
    I have been trying for weeks to get this working. The 722 has been replaced. Tech had me plug the sling adapter into my computer to verify it was being acknowledged. I was hopeing to find something here that would help. I have tried it all.

    Update: I am sure my Sling Adapter is fried. Dish should warn us about placing the adapter on top of the DVR. Mine only lasted 6months.

    I have my Sling Adapter place on top of my receiver. I've had my Sling Adapter since its release in 2010 and I still have my original Sling Adapter.

    Has the Sling Adapter been replaced? Please PM your account number to me and verify your 4 digit PIN number so I can assist you further. Thanks.

    I just received a new receiver and the sling doesn't work, I called the support but nothing, they said that is fault of my internet company, but from what I saw in these posts maybe it is something different. @Ray can you please help me? Thank you:(

    IM having the same issue.. Sling adapter has been fine, doesnt get hot where it sits, and then bam, up and dies.. no red light. It does recognize the device on the pc, but no red light.. firmware on the 722k shows ADEAZAAM .. and of course now the sling adapter even costs more than I originally paid.. :( Oh, and yes.. tried both usb ports.. sometimes the reciever will pop up a message about the sling adapter and waiting on the red light, most of the time it does not.. left it unplugged for 10 mins.. done multiple resets.. worked just fine previously about a week or so ago..
