    I just purchased a Slingbox SOLO and successfully connected the SOLO to my HR20. All works fine although the network connection for the SOLO is currently directly connected to my verizon router using a Cat5e cable across my bedroom floor. The wife is not happy :nono2: .

    Has anyone successfully connected ANY slingbox to a Linksys WET11 wireless bridge? If so do you have specific instructions?

    The WET11 works fine with other devices such as laptops, a PS2, and even my HR20. I just can't get the SOLO working with the WET11. I am aware that Slingmedia's website recommends against the WET11 but I'm not quiting that easily.

    Thanks in advance for anyone's help.

    I use the WET54G without a hitch on my HR20. You may want to look at the WET600 at some point to get multiple connections at the entertainment center. I just ordered the SMC 4 Port Ethernet Client for espansion and N speeds wirelessly.

    If Slingbox is posting negative on the WET11, there must be a reason. I am surprised you are having dificulties with it.

    Are you saying that you have a slingbox connected to your WET54G or only your HR20?

    My HR20 works fine with my WET11...that's not the problem. The problem is using my WET11 when connected to my Slingbox.
