So if I follow everything:
My dish got bumped out of whack and had to be realigned. The technician was required to verify that my DVR was connected to the internet before he left. He hit "restore defaults" and miraculously everything worked and he left.
At this point, I got into damage control mode. I use a WGA600N gaming adapter as a wireless bridge. I had a static IP address configured, because way back when I set this up, I had to do that to get it to work. Change things back to the static IP address and things don't work.
At this point, I have verified that WGA600N configuration and made sure it matches the other WGA600N I use with an H21. The router sees the WGA600N, has the correct IP address assigned to it for the HR20, and I can ping other computers in my house from the 600N.
I have used Advance Settings to get all of the router address info straight in the HR20-100.
I've done reboots and full power downs on the HR20 and the WGA600N.
No matter what I do, the HR20 fails to connect to the internet. I get the ever popular "Not connected (22)" and a result code of 86-071.
Any ideas what to check. I have an HR21-700 configured in my home theater with the same settings and it works just fine. Only difference is that I use a powerline adapter to connect that DVR to my router.
Everything was great until the technician did his thing..... (grumble, grumble)
The gaming adapter is configured and connects to your router.
Once you've gone into the advanced network settings, you've lost the auto detect function, so I'd reset the network defaults [again] and reboot the HR20.
When it comes back up it should find the internet. If it doesn't, then I'd go into the network setup, "but" simply used the "connect now" option and if asked, select a wired network [since the wireless adapter is already configured].
If this works, and I wanted to go static, I'd then only change the IP address under advanced settings.
If you need to load more than the IP address, this normally [for me] means I've got other problems and don't get very much success entering everything manually.
