    I tried connecting my HR24 to the internet via VPN connection from my MacBook Pro. My connection coming into the Mac is from WiFi. I shared my internet in the settings via Ethernet cable and no luck. I even tried sharing it without the VPN online.

    My advanced setup:
    192.168.0.10
    255.255.255.0
    192.168.0.1
    208.122.23.22 (a DNS server I have)

    Any reasons why I can't connect?

    Thanks

    Connect the receiver to the internet from a VPN connection on my laptop.

    Pittsfield,...
    Why not just get a wireless cinema connection kit from Directv?

    I know there's a way to do this for free via Ethernet.

    Good luck then.
    [not the expert here] I think you may find it a bit hard, as it would allow streaming outside of your home network, "if you got it to work".

    Sure is, run a cable from your HR to your home router.....what you are attempting won't work.

    what if I run the laptop VPN connection into a extra router I got? Would that do the trick?

    Folks, let's be careful here. If it looks like this thread is going to turn into a discussion of how to do things that are against your customer agreement, it will be shut down.
