It is not possible to add the Slingbox using the IP address if you are using the web-based application. The included instructions are designed to work with the SlingPlayer software version for Mac and Windows computers.
We do not know if this feature will be implemented any time soon for the web-based SlingPlayer application.
I just upgraded my old dlink router to a Cisco E1500. All the lights on the my SLingBox HD claim it is powered and connected but neither my desktop (hardwired to network) nor notebook can connect. When I try to run SlingBox connect I get and error message "There was an error connecting to your Slingbox. Make sure that your Slingbox is ON and connected to your network. Also check that firewall and router allow access. Do you want to retry?"
I know it is a etting in the router and there use to be a program that setup my router but....
Anyone can help???
