So I received my free Genie upgrade. They sent me out an HR 34-700. I have that and my HR24-200. I received my home connection kit also.
My previous setup was that I did not have whole home connection. I simply had my hr24-200 plugged into my wireless router via ethernet cable to get on demand, etc.
I follow the sintructions for setting up the home connection kit. The HR 34-700 is upstairs. The HR 24-200 is downstairs with the home connection router. I am connected to that via coax cables. I went through the setup, enetered my wireless network key, and am connected. I come upstairs and my HR34 is not connected. I go through netwrok setup and it fails, giving me a 169. IP address not a 192.
I run system test and it gives me the following error code70-73-165, could not detect home network.
I called Directv and spoke on the phone for 40 minutes and they said they are sending someone out next Wednesday. I would hope to haev it fixed by then.
Anyone have any advice? I also did a restore defaults, and a red button reset. I also did an internet router reset.
