I have an odd problem that maybe you can help me with. I have 2 HR20-100 DVRs and one H21-100 HD receiver all that are connected to each other through MRV but not through the method that DirecTV installs. I have one DVR wired to a Cisco E1200 wifi router and the other DVR and HD receiver connected through gaming bridges. For quite some time, this setup worked very well and with really no problems. But just recently, the DirecTV DVRs and receiver have been dropping their internet connections while still being able to communicate with each other through wifi MRV. I would reset the router and run the network setup to get the internet connected up and everything would be fine. And then when I call up an app or something that would require the internet connection, I would find the receiver does not detect the internet. Yet it still plays programs from the other DVR. And all my other computers and wifi devices work flawlessly with no dropped connections.
Any ideas? We had a rainstorm go through our area all day today but I would think that wouldn't cause the problem...?
Yeah, the rainstorm shouldn't have had any effect.
It does sound like the router is the cause, since the WiFi is still working for MRV.
It isn't clear if all the receivers are losing internet, or just those connected via WiFi.
Your router should have a factory reset button, which would be the next thing I'd suggest. Of course make sure you have the factory password before pressing the reset, as this step clears everything.
