Hello all, I have a Direct Tv HR44-200 and two Direct Tv C41-500 recievers in the house. Recently i have been having terrible trouble with the HR44 connecting via wireless to my router. It will only stay connected for about a day then revert to factory default ip address where i have to restore defaults and red button reset. Without doing a reset i get a error "cannot connect at this time". This problem has persisted with 2 routers so i know its not my router. After 6 phone calls to direct tv nothing has been done to fix this. They have me do a red button reset and reconnect and say they cant send a tech if there is no problem. Next time i call i get the same thing. So i searched the forums and found many people say there is no problem connecting via ethernet cord. But on 3 phone calls with direct tv about the wireless i asked if simply connecting ethernet would work and they replied "simply connecting ethernet will deactivate the genie client recievers. A ethernet connection package is required to do this correctly ($90)". I would just like to get more feedback on this with my specific equiptment before i go connecting things and causing more problems.
