That happened to me once. I turned the router off and then on again. Magically, it then worked. :confused:

If you hold the info button on the remote, you can see what IP your box is picking up. This will help you tell where the problem is.

Did you reboot your box after hooking up the ethernet cable? If not, you will need to do so.

Menu-connect-test-reboot....repeat as needed. Goes for both the routers and the HR-20, I've found.
