    There was a problem communicating with the Slingbox. Try Connecting Again.

    Consequences

      I am currently in college using the unprotected wifi the school provides for the students.  At the dorm I am at my slingplayer does not work, but the school itself, which also provides unprotected wifi, my slingplayer works fine.  When I try to connect on the slingplayer app on my computer and webbrowser I get the problem of "There was a problem communicating with the Slingbox. Try Connecting Again."  The connection does work here, but my slingplayer cannot connect.  Is there a way to fix this?

       

      I dont know if this will help but you can register devices here if you have the MAC Address.  I doubt the slingplayer has a MAC Address, but if it does how would I locate that?  I also have my own router here as well but its feeding off of the same connection the school provides.  Is there something I can do to go into my router to allow my connection to work?  Thank you for the help I appreciate it.
