Are you sure the Genie is actually assigning addresses in that range?

The Genie shows these on the info screen, and the C31 shows what it uses.

I'm sure the Genie knows the addresses of the clients, it would get those when the clients connect. And the C31s would know their own addresses, of course. I'm just skeptical that the Genie is actually assigning those addresses to the clients. AFAIK, that would be a violation of the spec for that protocol, and too likely to break.

I don't have any C31s, or I would test this myself.

I doubt they are assigning them, but they are using them, which was Merg's point.

Well, no, Merg specifically said the Genie was assigning the addresses.

First you went after the OP, and then Merg.
"The point" is the Genie & clients use the 169.xxx IPs and the OP might want to remove the router connection and see how the C31s work.
If the problem goes away, then it's router related.
If the problem doesn't, then it's DirecTV's problem.

There really is no point going into who mistook where the 169.xxx comes from.

So correcting misinformation or asking for clarification is "going after" someone? Or is that only if you're not one of the old timers around here?

if you don't have C31's or the original subject isn't happening to you, what does it matter?


Sheesh. I guess it doesn't matter if the actual operation of the networking protocol doesn't really matter. I still contend that if the Genie is actually assigning those address then it's wrong to do so. But hey, if you don't care then I don't either.
