    I have an HR23/700 receiver and a linksys WET610N ethernet bridge hooked up to it in our family room. The bridge connects from a wireless router Linksys E3000 to the internet through the receiver, but when I go and try to watch a Youtube video I receive an error message telling me to check my internet connection.

    I have another WET610N hooked up in the living room to a HR21/700 and that works fine.

    Could it be a problem with the router, or the WET610N or the receiver?

    Swapping adapters might help you isolate a problem there.

    When you go to the Menu->Settings & Help->Settings->Network Setup screen, what does it say about your IP address and network connectivity?

    The magic of wireless is that its coverage can be inconsistent and it is susceptible to interference from all manner of electronics, appliances and fixtures.

    Sometimes just rebooting the router can get things working. Are you currently using MRV between the two receivers? Is that working fine while YouTube is not?

    The IP address is fine. i switched from a powerline to the WET610N last week and it was working fine until a couple days ago.

    The WET610N is notorious for needing to be rebooted. I had one on my HR23 and now it is connected to my XBOX360. Always having to reboot that thing.

    I'm using the WES610N 4-port version communicating with an EA4500 without any issues. Been running without a reboot for three months.

    Just out of curiosity, do you have a standard multiswitch or a SWM?
    If you have a SWM then you can get their wireless kit for the receiver and it will send the signal back through the SWM and you will only need that one piece for all receivers to have connectivity instead of multiple bridges.
    Just a thought.
