Sometimes unplugging the modem can fix such. Even leaving it de-powered overnight if not inconvenient, but sometimes a ten minute reset works.

Good luck.

Still no love on the streaming. The HR34 seems to drop Internet connectivity every 10 minutes or so. I've turned off firewalls on my router, extended leases to like 1000 hours, reset the DVR, unplugged/plugged back in all devices, and still nothing.

When Internet connectivity does stick around, I get a local link IP address of 169.254.6.24. and an error code of 86-24.

Not sure what to make of all this. I've gone thru all the steps to ensure he Internet is set up properly & it is. Nothing else/no other devices on my network are having issues, it's just the DVR and streaming to the iPad.

I'm perplexed.

If you are getting an IP address on the HR34 of 169.254.x.x. then your receiver is not communicating correctly with your router and obtaining an IP address. If you can, check on your router if you can create DHCP reservations. Basically, there would be a table that you can enter in the MAC address for the HR34 and specify what IP address you want it to have. You would then rerun the network setup on the HR34 so it obtains that specific IP address.

Hold on, that depends on where he's getting that 169.254.x.x address. He said it's a "local link" address. The Genies use the 169.254.x.x net to communicate with Genie Clients so all HR34's should get an 169.254.x.x address AND an address on your local LAN. If you go into "Network Setup" > "Advanced Setup" you'll see "Link-local" at the bottom. That address should be a 168.254.x.x address. It's the "Server IP" at the top that should be an IP on your LAN.
