    When I configured the bridge using WPS, it showed up in the router's DHCP table, as did the DVR (each with their own MAC). When I set it up using the DVR, only the DVR was listed.

    I configured my bridge with the STB and I have the IP of the connected HR22 set as permanent in the router (a BEC 7402 ASDL modem/router).

    I can see the HR22 listed in the router with its correct IP and MAC address, but nothing is listed for the bridge. It's like it's hardwired to the router. Before 0x0350, I fiddled around with the WET610N and got it connected using the web interface and I could see both the HR22 and the bridge in the router.

    I can see the WET610N listed as a client in my Airport Extreme, with the correct MAC address. It's just odd that I can't see it in the router.

    Doesn't really seem to matter though as this setup seems to be working very well with VOD and TV Apps.

    Yeah, I think the bottom line for the FAQ will be that in their media server the user should authorize any newly discovered device that has the same IP address as the one shown under the receiver's Network setup Advanced menu....

    I noticed this too a few days ago, that the DVR seems to inherit the MAC Address of the Bridge when you do the install via the DTV Reciever Mode of setup. The WET610N seems to become invisable when ths happens. I have been trying for days to find a program that will identify the BRIDGE in my network. But haven't been able to as of yet. Maybe this is a security feature we are unaware of that is built into the WET610N. I do like how it pulls up your service provides DNS up.

    The only time I have ever seen it in my network has been when the CD was used for setup, or I set it up my self manually.

    Any of the more technical of us, have a good explanation of why this happens? Or are you going to make me crawl through the et look for it myself :rolleyes:

    Copy / Paste from the Issues topic:

    HR22-100 CE: 0x0350:

    ISSUE: My SSID (broadcasting) was NOT shown in the list of networks. "Linksys" was the only SSID shown but does not exist in my area. I scanned using a laptop to confirm this. Also, my geographic location to another residence makes finding a network outside of my house near impossible.


    I ran this two times. Each time, the HR22-100 had the network "restored to defaults" and the WET610N was reset to "factory defaults". Also, MAC address filtering is turned on in my router and I entered the MAC address of the WET610N before I started these tests. This bridge had been working fine for a week using manual configuration while waiting for the CE.

    First try:
    WET610N was detected within 5 minutes which seems too long for it to find it.
    My wireless network's SSID was not found. Had to manually type it in.
    After a very long "please wait" (5 minutes?) the security prompts came up.
    Continued with setup to completion with no other issues.

    Second try:
    WET610N was detected within 30 seconds which seems perfect for someone that might not know what they are doing.
    My wireless network's SSID was not found. Had to manually type it in.
    After a very long "please wait" (5 minutes?) the security prompts came up.
    Continued with setup to completion with no other issues.


    Concerns:
    My network is also secured using WPA2-AES. During the automatic set up using the receiver's CE, I was presented with the passcode key entry and a key #. I was confused as to why it wanted a key# because I am not using WEP. An onscreen indication of my network's security of WPA2-AES would be a nice feature so I at least know that it knows what type of security the network is running.

    Is this because it failed to find my network to begin with? I see other screenshots that show it not asking for a key#.

    Summary:
    With the exception of not finding my broadcasted wireless network's SSID, I did not find any major issues.

    I'll check mine again, probably tonight.
    I did notice the MAC address of the bridge had an IP within the DHCP scope but I can not for the life of me connect to that bridge now on that IP.

    My bridge was set up via the receiver this time.

    I made some changes to my router and did a firmware upgrade and noticed a nice difference in speed on both my laptop and the bridge. Seems that I didnt optimize my settings before.
