I've just moved my Slingmedia setup to a new house (PRO HD, SlingLInk TURBO 4-port). I have found that the Slinglink 4-port device does NOT work reliably in this home, despite the fact that it worked just fine at my old house.
If I move all of my networking gear adjacent to the Slingbox and cable the Slingbox directly to my router (off of the cable modem), all is good. If, however, I leave my networking gear in its normal habitat and use the Slinglink devices to bridge the network to the Slingbox, I cannot reliably connect to or use the Slingbox. The box reports repeated network failures.
I have done all of the trouble-shooting steps outlined on the Slingmedia website - no joy.
In researching powerline-ethernet on the Web, I have learned that it's possible that the two locations in my house are not on the same 110-volt "leg" of service within my house, and that wiring designs like this can cause problems with powerline ethernet installations. Could that be my issue? How can I test for it definitively? Is there a fix for this? (I've read about something called a bridging capacitor that my address it.)
Any insights from anyone? Thanks in advance!
This seems to be an issue with the Internet configuration on the computer since the Slingbox still works good with the SlingLinks connected to it. I suggest to check the router settings, you can assign a static IP address on it to the computer and you should not experience more issues
Hope this works
