I am currently in need of some help getting my boxes connected to teh internet.

1 HR34
3 H25s
SWM3 single wire to 8 way splitter
Each H25 connected directly to splitter
4th coax from splitter to Power Inserter out of PI to two way splitter (Green SWM label 2-210 mHz - Coax 1 from two way directly to HR-34. Coax 2 from splitter into coax port of Black Broadband DECA box. Cat 5/6 from Deca box into router.

The Deca network seems to be working fine as all three H25s see the HR34 and can play, trickplay, delete, set recordings etc.

The problem is I can't get connected to my network and thus the internet.

Automatic setup results in no internet access, result code 86-792, the HR34 showing an ip address of 169.XXX.XXX.XXX and the subnet mask set to

Advanced setup, setting the ip statically (within allowable range but well away from DHCP leases), setting the subnet mask to, and setting the default gateway and DNS server to the correct addresses still results in not connected and result code 86-792

Can any of the networking gurus help me here?

Clearly your BB DECA isn't giving everyone the router information.
Does the BB DECA have all three green LEDs?
Is the cat5/6 cable good?
