You dont need internet for NFL nor WHDVR. However, loosing the internet means no more On Demand and Pandora and the other "connected" features available now and the ones to come.
try holding the reset button on the back of the CCK-W for 30 seconds. then on your HDDVR press
MENU ➜ SETTINGS & HELP ➜ SETTINGS ➜ NETWORK SET UP ➜ RESTORE DEFAULTS ➜ CONNECT NOW ➜ GET CONNECTED ➜ WIRELESS. the receiver will then scan for Wi-Fi networks and should d find yours. once it finds your SSID, select your network name. if your network is secured, it will ask you to type in your password. if successful, you will get a message that says "congratulations, your receiver is connected to the internet" Note that your SSID and/or password cannot have any spaces and/or special characters
Many people aren't aware of the differences between entering security codes when the router is in WEP mode vs. WPA. When entering security keys, if you see the 2nd field appear on the setup screen that shows 'key # (1-4)' then the router is using WEP and only hexidecimal security codes may be entered. You can use www.wepkey.comto covert a passphase to it's hexidecimal equivalant. With WPA you can use a passphrase and it's case sensitive. Other notes are below:
For SSIDs The following 6 characters are not allowed: ?, ", $, [, \, ] and the following 3 characters cannot be the first character: !, #, and ;.
Apple products automatically use the apostrophe character as a prefix, so the SSID must be manually edited to remove this.
For security keys:
For Apple products using WEP:
- Find the security key by using the Airport utility.
- Go to the "Base Station" menu and select "Equivalent Network Password."
For WPA passphrases, to enter words or phrases with the remote's keypad:
- Triple tap the number keys, like texting on a cell phone (like T9 language settings on a cell phone).
Ex: Press 2 once for the number 2, twice for the letter A, three times for B, etc.
- Keep pressing the same key to scroll through upper to lower case.
Thanks. I have WPA setup and it starts with a letter and has two numbers in the middle of the password but no special characters. I know the password is right and works with every other device. I made sure it was put in properly.
What's interesting is I noticed this afternoon that the Lan light came on and I was able to get on the internet through DirecTV. Than an hour or so later the light was off again and I was back to not getting on the internet?
Any idea what the problem is when all other devices connect with no problem? Could it be the CCK-W unit itself?
Since you have WHDVR, make sure that you are ONLY connecting the CCK-W via the coaxial cable and NOT ethernet. The coax from the SWM splitter connects to the CCK-W "towards LNB" port. the "to receiver" port connects to your DECA Home Adapter which in turn connects to the HR21 SWM satellite input. The DECA also connect to the HR21 ethernet port via a short ethernet cable.
is this how yours is connected?
Yes that is the way it is connected. The coax going into the towards LNB port of the CCK-W is the cable coming into the house from the dish right? The sat recv input of the CCK-W goes to the towards LNB end of the Home adapter. The home adapter connects on the other side to the receiver with a short cable and short ethernet cable...
What is weird when I flipped the cables on the CCK-W the LAN lit up but I had no home network connection. When I flipped them back to the correct connection I lost the Lan light got the home network back but lost internet connection again..
I do appreciate all your help any more ideas?
