Directional?

 

I thought the BSF rejects the MoCA network signal from passing through it in either direction?

Which is (was) my thinking given that DirecTV attaches the "pig tail" to prevent mistakes.

if they are indeed directional (which I think they are), having the pigtail makes it that much easier.

Use port range forwarding for "Network Services" example 27162-27163

 

is there any need to port forward these ports?

Not for any DirecTV functionality I'm aware of. I've heard Clearwire customers might want to forward certain ports, though I'm not familiar with the reason why.

Its for their voice services, you can get your voicemail via your DIRECTV box as I recall if you live in and use their voice mail services areas.

My new genie was set up for wireless b/c i didnt have a hard line connected. There was one there but tech said to never use it? Anyways it will only stay connected for a little while and disconnects. When i press the arrow button  right to look at weather app it keeps telling me no internet connection. I have 3 other wifi receives for my other tv's linking to the genie wirelessly but i would love for the genie to be hard wired since it is there already and hoping it would keep an active connection.

Tech told you a wrong thing. Connect the ethernet cable and that may just do it for your whole system.
