GOT IT! I GOT IT!!!

I really hope this helps someone in the future having these same problems because the instructions they sent me, (and the ones on the internet, ) are ALL WRONG!!!

I am now going to tell you my set up so you can fix yours- (you can read my setup on the first post to determine if you have the same setup as I do. I had my DirecTV installed in Sept. 2012' with all the latest receivers, etc.

Instructions-
Connect the coax coming in from the floor to the "Power to SWIM" jack on the "Power Inserter" box. Take the cable connected to the "Signal to IRD" jack on the "Power Inserter" box and connect it to the "SAT Rcvr" jack on the CCK, (Cinema Connection Kit) Now, connect the coax they sent you with the kit to the "Towards LBN" jack on the CCK and connect that to the "SAT 1" jack on the Hr24 receiver.

After I did this, I saw "We have detected a wireless device," "Would you like to set it up now?" on my tv screen. I pressed "set up now" it did something and went away....

I pressed the right directional button on my remote, no internet detected....

Then I went to my wireless DSL router and pressed the WPS button, then pressed the WPS button on the CCK... all the lights lit up green. I pressed the right directional key on my remote, still no internet detected...

So, I went menu-settings & help-settings-network setup-connect now it ran a test, it automatically set up the wireless network and came back "Congratulating" me because the internet was now set up! FINALLY!

I pressed the right directional key on my remote and it automatically started initializing the TV Apps, (which told me that the internet was indeed, connected!!!)


Don't shoot me, but how you have it connected should not make a difference as to whether it is working or not. I'm wondering if your cable connection to the CCK was not on tight enough on one of the sides. Just for grins, can you swap the cables around for the "Sat Rcvr" port and "Towards LBN" port (back to the original set up) and see what happens?

Today's problems don't worry me, I haven't solved yesterday's yet.

Those instructions are bass ackwards cuz. I've connected quite a few wireless CCK's IAW the supplied directions and they always worked. Except when Apple crap was involved. It might be possible that those jacks are just pass throughs and it doesn't really matter which way they are connected, Directv makes directions and fancy labels for idiots like me. We could test that out.

There's an internal 2-way splitter, so connecting it backwards increases loss.

Yes, but it should still work just fine though, correct (with the exception of the increased loss)?

"Generally", but a CCK connected to a backward [non green] 2-way splitter has caused troubles before.

Isn't that the operative word though?

Maybe not the way you think though.
It didn't cause a problem with the receiver nearest the CCK, and the receiver had no SWiM problems.
It did cause another receiver off the main splitter to have DECA problems.

Aahhh...

But, if the OP in this case has all green label splitters it shouldn't cause any additional issues.
