After a year and a half, my WHDVR problems have returned. In 12/13, I resolved the DVR's disconnecting from the home network by assigning IP addresses and not using DHCP.
For the past 6 months or so, I've had problems with HD-DVR's dropping off the home network. I have 2 HR-24's and 1 H23 using the WH Network. For about 4 months, only 1 specific HR24 would disconnect, but both began doing it after about 20 seconds of watching a recording. I also get the msg that a wireless adapter has been detected on that 1 unit. I have assigned IP addresses outside of my DHCP range for all 3 units.
I just had a tech out and he feels the DSL router speeds are the main issue. When running a speed test, I'm getting 3.1 Mbps download and .39 Mbps upload. He also thought the 1 unit only having 11% storage space left can contribute to the problem. I sometimes have up to 8 devices connected to the router, he also mentioned this can be part of the problem. I do have a SWM switch. The H23 has an external DECA and the H24's have the internal DECA's. All three boxes are connected via wireless with specific IP addresses. One of the H24's has the CCK connected via coax with the sat cable coming into the CCK.
The CCK is connected via wireless to the router. I understand that if there is no network connection, the units will revert to a 169.TV stand, and oddly enough, I was able to view programs from my 2nd DVR to the other DVR for about 2 hours. After that, the disconnect msg has started and the unit is not connected to my wireless if I push the "-" button. After about 2-3 minutes, the network connection will be restored with no intervention.IP addresses for the WH network via coax; but I'm not sure how to prevent the units from connecting to my network. After the tech left this AM, I moved my router to my
The frustration comes from DTV giving me different answers on how the WH works. I've been told that my home network has no bearing on the WH, but it seems that the DVR's drop off the WH when the DVR's come disconnected from my wireless network, so it appears there is some interaction.
Is anyone familiar with the Genie setup with a broadband CCK and ethernet that the tech told me about today? I the more I think about him telling me that is my DSL speed, I can't buy it. There must be tons of folks using DSL and WHDVR's successfully.....
I can upgrade to a Genie setup and he mentioned connecting a broadband CCK directly to the router via ethernet.
