I am hardwired through a switch to my router. I'm wondering if there's something incompatible with this router (Cisco EA-4500). Everything else I have works just fine through it. I have 10 devices running through it with no issues - except the sling.

As to what the red LED means, I don't know, but it seems to indicate power (USB).

When we replaced the Sling adapter, I hooked it up to the old Hopper and it powered on (red LED) first time, then was dead the second day. I'm still at a loss.

The ten devices connected could be an issue. Have you tried disconnecting stuff to see if anything happens with Sling?
And, the Hopper is hardwired...? or are you using one of those USB wireless things at the Hopper to connect?
There have been reports of wireless problems with Hopper.
Thank you and
Best of luck

Most of the devices are not on at the same time. For instance, 3 iPhones, 2 iPads, XBOX, printer, etc, so I'm pretty sure having 10 devices is not an issue.

It's hardwired
