Wondering if anyone has come across this issue and a possible solution to it.
The setup = HR44-x00 ( I think it's a 700, positive it's not a 200) with 1 mini genie, C41-500 (pretty sure it's a 500) Slimline SWM3 Lnb ODU. NEC grounded, with one 2 way splitter. The router is a BandLuxe R529 4g cellular modem from Bluegrass Cellular. It has only a LAN and WAN RJ45 jack on it for connectivity, it is also wifi capable.
EDIT= I changed out the 2 way for a 4 way and ran a coax to the router to connect with a broadband deca. Unsuccessful at that. Forgot to add, the PI is behind the HR44.
The problem = Cannot get the HR44 to connect to the wifi router AND maintain the mini client connection to the HR44. I can get the genie to connect to the wifi modem, when it connects, the mini genie goes searching for servers, no servers found.
Resetting network settings to default, to break the wifi connection, the mini will come back online. This happened with 2 different genies, 2 different clients. Replaced ALL of the coax, with appoved coax. (solid copper 60%braid 3ghz swept rg6)
So, tried running a coax connected broadband deca, and it will work that way BUT, customers pc goes offline. So this router/modem, the pc connects to the LAN port of the modem. The modems documentation says the WAN port is for putting this unit inline with another router or modem. I tried connecting both ways and cant get both the pc and the genie online at same time. I THINK a switch will work to solve this issue. I tried an OLD Linksys router, the one withOUT wifi built into it. Doesn't work. I assume its from some settings. Maybe static IP addresses from the ISP, I did not get that deep into it because customer was getting worried that their computer would get messed up and not be able to get online with it.
I am going to try a switch on it, going to take one of mine over there to test it out.
BUT what has me thrown for a loop, is the client dropping off the network when the internal wifi if the genie is connected to this wifi modem. What could be messing up the system? I think it has to do with the 4g cellular band frequencies used, being in the same range that the moca network uses to send the video signal to the client.
Hope some of that makes sense to somebody. Any and all help is appreciated. Just know this is not at my home so I can't trouble shoot quickly.
Thanks all. DaaQ
