    I switched all the IPs, in the 30s, can't see the WCCK, and still see one of the H21s on the router with a different ip than I set up????? Watching to see if the disconnect message comes back, fingers crossed, if I don't see it while watching the game I will not mess with it, thanks all! :grin:

    Did you run any network setup after you reset because it shouldn't be connected to your network if you did a full factory reset. Need to hold the reset button down on the CCK-W until the lights flash back on again.

    I think you can't access it because there is an ip conflict with some other device that never released its old ip before you set up the hardcoded ip range. It won't be visible on your DHCP lease table after you give it a static ip because its not using DHCP anymore but you should be able to access it with the new ip. You may want to try a different ip for it next time you get back into it.

    There really isn't any "may" to this. The paperclip reset has returned the WCCK back to factory settings, so the WiFi setup "must be" redone.

    I just pressed the paperclip button, how long do I need to hold it? The lights went off and the power light was blinking...

    That sounds like it was long enough.

    Once the lights come back, you'll need to use a receiver to setup a wireless connection to your router, or use the WPS option.

    I watched all night with no pop up message! We'll see what happens this weekend! Maybe all this lead to a solution, let's hope so! :hurah:

    Wait so what did you end up doing exactly? Did you reset everything or give it all static ip addresses?

    This is what I did,
    I changed the DHCP range on my router
    Changed all the IPs on my recievers outside that range (still not sure what the IP is on the WCCK)
    then reconnected all

    Seems to be working....
