    Can the 2wire units have their firmware updated by the end user? Might be worth looking into to see what fw versions each of you have and if there is a newer one out there.

    They can and have an easy "update check" in their GUI. Mine shows none are available, with Software Version: 5.29.109.5.

    Well...hmmm....:confused:

    Not sure what more to suggest. Dig through each menu in the router to see if anything is out of place. Stuff like the Ip range being too smal for all devices in the household, wonky lease renewal times, etc.

    Maybe try a different broadband deca/power supply as well if it hasn't been swapped out yet.

    Good luck.

    Lease renewal default is 24 hours, which mine is, but it can be changed up to 999 hours.

    I have literally gone through the 2wire setup a hundred times looking for something that didn't seem right. I also experimented with increasing the renew times, before going with static IP's without success. I reconnected to the 2wire and rebooted the system. I started by unplugin the power supply and all receivers then I plugged in the power supply and each receiver one by one starting with the main one on the account then the other four in no particular order. Did I do that right? Thanks for the help.

    "Sounds fine".
    I still think there is something going on with the wireless devices that is causing this, since "mine works fine", and with your other wireless devices not connected, yours does too.

    Well my network is a mix of wired and wireless, mostly due to the logistics of each room. I have two wired desktops. Two wireless desktops, two wireless laptops. Three wireless gaming adapters, one to my Blu ray player, one to kids X Box and one to my Sling Box. Then of course my five DVR's. I could eliminate these on an experimental basis, although if they did prove to be the problem the only way I would be able to permanently eliminate the adapters would be to connect to a switch connected by DECA. I know that although some people have had good results with this it is not recommended. Your theory seems about the best thing I have going at this point and I probably will have to go down that path. Thanks again.

    Seems like you have more wireless than wired. Maybe setting them to static IPs might help. :shrug:

    Try swapping the deca serving as your internet bridge with one thats on a receiver. Way out there longshot, but maybe that particular deca don't like your router.

    With all the stuff you have hooked up, I would actually suggest as a next step, if possible sometime, to disconnect everything from your router EXCEPT the directv deca cloud, and see if all works well, then we will know if its the router or something else causing conflicts of some sort... Or at least, disconnect the majority of stuff, and leave just one computer if possible for a couple days, this assuming the issue is still present after you simply plugged it back in.

    If you read back in this thread, that has been done and the DECA worked fine, suggesting it's the other devices connected via wireless that is causing this.

    Thanks to all for the suggestions. Im going to see how long it stays up and running. Then I will implement them one at a time. Again thanks to everyone for taking the time to respond.

    Just a quick update. At the time of my last post. I set my 2wire back to default settings. What this did was change my signal strength from 10 to 4. After confirming that this was not strong enough to get to my basement I immediately changed back to 10. The only other thing that changed was my channel from 10 to 1 which I left. I then reconnected DECA, did a full system reset and let my router assign the IP addresses.
    I basically tried to copy VOS's settings for his 2wire. As of Saturday morning I have not lost one receiver. The system has been rock solid for one week. Previously I never got past two days. I'm not sure why this changed but I am extremely happy. The constant resets were getting old.

    Routers can be "funny" and not all the workings seem so apparent.
    Changing your channel and power settings I doubt made any difference, but the "flush" of the resetting more than likely cleared something within the router.
    I'd expect now that you'll have the same performance out of your 2Wire as I'm having. :)

    You had me for two things:
    error 48 is "my thing" and then you moved to issues with a 2Wire, which I just happened to be using. :rolleyes:

    Next time pick something else :lol:

    For those following my struggle I guess I spoke too soon. It was stable for exactly one week. Yesterday after my last post I lost one receiver and today another. It looks like I am back where I started. I really can't See any other option then to remove the system from my 2wire router and keep it like that. It is obvious that my system just does not want to get along with my router. I do have an extra router sitting on the shelf and in my limited research it appears that I could use the second router and use it exclusively for my VOD/WHDVR setup. I am not very knowledgeable with networking so I am looking for opinions weather this is a valid option or even possible. If it is if anyone would like to instruct me in how to go about this it would be appreciated. I guess I would want to configure this as a separate router, if that make sense. I have already tried to use a standard switch which didn't help at all. Something I just wanted to point out is that when I do loose receivers they are still connected to the router and I still have the ability to use VOD and Apps. I am just loosing the ability for one receiver to see the other. Thanks for any help.

    A whole week?
    I'm going to go back and suggest this is from what's going on on the wireless side.

    I haven't tried cascading routers, but would guess the DNS numbers would need to be used from the first router on the second router. Is this "other" router just a router or is it a combined modem/router, like the 2Wire?
