Trying to connect moden for OnDemand knocks out internet
So I had trouble connecting the DirecTV modem to my wireless because i cannot run an Ethernet to the Modem. After a reset, i was finally able to find the wireless connection and enter the password, etc. It worked, for about 10 minutes.
Then, no wireless....for anything. There was internet being piped through, but the router could not connect. Laptop, ipads, smartphones....none could connect.
I unplug the Cable modem and wireless router, etc. worked for a few minutes, then down again.
I figured it was the DirecTV modem doing this. I reset the cable modem and router. I also reset the DirecTV modem again....I did not connect it to the wireless router this time, however.
Low and behold, my internet works again. For some reason, having the wireless router connected to the DirecTV modem caused all the connectivity to go to crap.
I have a Genie DVR : Model: HR34-700
Have comcast with their Modem and NetGear router
Anyone else experience this?
