I am racking my brain reading as much as I can on the directv forums but didn't receive much help so I thought I'd come to the experts.

My router DLink DI-624 with Fios has these settings.

LAN
MAC Address
00-15-E9-67-FD-DA
IP Address
192.168.1.1
Subnet Mask
255.255.255.0
DHCP Server
Enabled

WAN
MAC Address
00-15-E9-67-FD-DB
Connection
PPPoE Connected
IP Address
72.86.105.112
Subnet Mask
255.255.255.255
Default Gateway
72.86.105.112
DNS
68.238.0.12 68.238.112.12

The IP of the router is 192.168.1.1

I bought the trendnet gaming bridge and had to change the ip setting on that b/c it conflicted with my other IP addresses...that is set to 192.168.1.103
By using that ip was able to go in to the bridge and set it up with my wireless settings on my network. That works fine.

When I hook up my bridge to my R22 I am still able to access the internet with my pcs on the network for awhile but then after of a few minutes of trying to connect with the r22 my ip address changes on my wireless connection mysteriously to 169.254.58.22 and then I can't access the internet with any of my pcs until I unplug the Dlink and and bridge and make sure I don't have the bridge connected to my R22.

Please help.

I thought I knew what i was doing by reading up, but I'm pretty much clueless and/or back to square one after trying all day yesterday.

Thank you very much in advance.

These are the settings I have plugged into the R22
ip 192.168.1.109
subnet 255.255.255.0
gateway 192.168.1.1
dns 68.238.0.12

Yes, if you are getting an Error(22) on you Internet Test, it is probably safe to ignore at the moment. If things seem to work, then there should be nothing to worry about. DIRECTV is aware of the issue and is working on it ..

I have the 255 NR. I have never been able to connect so I wondered if it was me. Sounds like in the other threads some can still do VOD. What is the difference between VOD and ON Demand? Should I be able to do VOD still now?

VOD and On Demand are the same thing. You will even see it referred as DoD
(DIRECTV On Demand) too.

You have to be connected to the internet for DoD to work.

After I connect the ethernet cable from the wireless bridge to the R22 and go into advanced setup and plug in my settings, my wireless connection ip address changes to the mysterious default ip address (169.254.58.22 ) that was in the R22 advanced setup before I changed them.

This then wreaks havoc on my whole network and I have to unplug everything. Where is the R22 getting this ip address from?

Please help. thanks

I am not sure about the wireless bridge you have but I know with the wireless game adapters you need to connect it to a PC and run the setup disk first. Once it is connected to your network you disconnect from the PC and connect it to the ethernet connection on the DVR and select connect in the network menu.

Yes, I was able to set it up via PC first. Everything works great until I connect it to the R22.

OK....well when you connect it to the R22 you should not have to change any settings like you posted above. All you should do is select connect and it will take you through a few steps and you should be connected.

Should I restore default settings b/c I changed them and screwed them up?

Where is the connect button. I have been going into menu and the network button. Is that where u are talking about?

I don't know if this is an issue, but when I try to go into the setting of the bridge after I remove the ethernet cable from the router I cannot access the settings anymore. Shouldn't I be able to access the settings wirelessly?

When you go under network in the menu I believe one of the options say connect. Once you select it, it will ask wired, wireless, or power line. There is a couple steps and than you should be connected.

I would restore default and start over.

Okay, I'll try it.

Do you think it's strange that I can't connect to my bridge when the is no longer hard wired to my router?

Got DOD connected to internet late last night. The problem was that I was selecting access point for the bridge instead of AP client.

Once I figured that out, it lit up quick. Downloaded RV and Youngblood. Sweet.

I was under the false impression that the Showtime, movie channels, etc, would be free. Found out they weren't when I tried to add to queue. Guess it makes sense.

What I found ridiculous was that NBC on Demand was pay. Why?

Hang tight until tomorrow .. that's all I can suggest at the moment.
Are we expecting some sort of fix for this or information regarding a fix or workaround?

Anything would be greatly appreciated.

Today at about 12:30 EDST I got a pop-up that said "Congratulations you are connected to the Internet".

I went to the Network setup section and there was a "Test Connection" option that I used to get when DOD worked.

Alas, when I did the test it was back to Error 22.

It looks like something happened today. Maybe tomorrow will be better.

BTW even though I can use DOD with the Error 22 problem the QOS is really bad. I can usually download about half of a 30 minute show and then start getting Connection failed messages.
