I have three HD-DVRs, all hooked up via Deca. I have a SWM8. I did the install.
- HR20-100 in Basement
- HR22-100 in Living Room
- HR21-200 in Bedroom
When I did the install a few months back, everything was working fine. Every once in a while, a receiver would drop off. Do a "Restore Defaults" on "Network Setup" or a Reset would fix the problem.
Last week, I couldn't get the Living Room HD-DVR to connect using any of the methods. The Basement and Bedroom DVRs saw each other fine. I found the "Static IP" thread but my original router (TrendNet TEW-432BRP) couldn't do DHCP Reservations and didn't seem to be able to handle IPs set outside of the DHCP pool.
So, I invested in an Cisco E2000. I was looking to upgrade to a N router anyway. I set up my receivers using DHCP reservations and got them all to connect to the internet.
However, my Basement receiver is now causing problems. It can connect to the internet (via the connection test), but cannot see the other two receivers. The other two receivers connect to each other and the internet.
Today, I connected a switch in between my Deca Broadband Adapter and my Cisco router, but that did not appear to solve the issue. I tried to a "Restore Defaults" on the Basement HD-DVR.
I don't know what is causing the issue. I am in the middle of recording Final Four games, so I can't do a reset right now. I plan to do a reset on the Basement receiver at the end of the night.
Any other suggestions? Any other information that I can provide to help solve the problem?
