    can't connect through home network

    homerun11

      Recently , my Sling player on my laptop stopped wroking.  I t has worked fine, even after I upgrated to Windows 7. Sling player works fine from  computer at my office  and also on my ipod touch at home.  I  get  the "there is a problem connecting to the sling box".  Error code 0x92340011, unable to render a vido stream.   I have rebooted the cable router and home router and rechecked all the router settings (port forwarding set up, 5001, both and correct  internal IP address.  I am able to ping the router.  When I go through the setup process, the video properly streams in the preview window.  But when I exit iut stops.  Router is a Linksys  wrtg54.  Any suggestions?

          Hi Tom,

           

           

          I think 0x92340011 is a time-out error.  Regardless, it sounds like you're having a problem with your laptop, not the Slingbox or router.  Do you have a software firewall running on your laptop ?  I think you might, and that it's very likely the stinker.

           

           

          From your description, here's what we can reasonably assume:

           

          Your Slingbox is working.  If you can run setup and at least one other computer can reliably and consistently sling in, it's fine.

           

          Your home network is working.  The iPod Touch wouldn't be able to sling in otherwise.

           

          Your router and internet service is working and properly configured for remote viewing.  You can sling in from the office.

           

          Your cabling and physical setup is working.  See all of the above.

           

           

          That pretty much leaves your laptop, and this smells like a firewall.

           

          If you take your iPod Touch and your laptop somewhere that has an open public wifi hotspot, try watching Slingbox there with both devices.  If the iPod gets in and the laptop doesn't, it's definitely a firewall.

           

           

          Hope this helps !

                  Hi Marcelo,

                   

                   

                  For you, is it happening all the time / everywhere / on different computers ?

                   

                  It's hard to say if you're having the same issue or not.

                   

                  Homerun11 had pretty much isolated the problem to his laptop from what he said in his post.  Pending more clues and info, I still think it's a security program or software firewall blocking things on that one computer but I could be wrong.  Regardless, I'm quite certain the problem is on the laptop whatever it turns out to be.

                   

                   

                  I'd suggest you start by trying to sling in from a different computer at home, see how that goes and we can take it from there.

                   

                   

                  Good luck !

                      Thanks, AZ.  My problem was solved surprisingly with just a reboot of the slingbox, after the reboot of the routers.  Doesn't make sense to me, but I will take it.

                          If it's working, that's what counts.  Good to hear it's up and running now, and with such little effort !

                           

                           

                          Rebooting in that order restarted the router's DHCP functions before the Slingbox came asking for an IP.  Perhaps there were other things going on, but that makes good sense to me.

                           

                           

                           

                          Happy trails,

                              hello,

                               

                              I'm wokring offshore just now and I'm trying to access my slingbox but there is a connection fault.  I've been operating the slingbox for about 2 months now but just before going off to work I tried add a Slingcatcher to my network.  All I did was connect the slingcatcher to my router where the slingbox is connected but due to the little time I had I never got it working.  After doing this it seems that my slingbox is knocking me off the internet as when getting the slingbox disconnected from my router the wireless internet works fine.

                               

                              I've got my mother to go round to my house and reboot the slingbox - (which never worked) then my router.  After rebooting my router the slingbox worked but soon after I lost communitcaiton again.

                               

                              I hope someone can help

                                  I am still having the same issue here with the same error. Strange is that I can steam with my iPhone just fine.

                                  I cannot view locally using any PC or outside my house. It is not a Firewall problem other wise my iPhone will not be able to sling thru 3G.

                                  I have reset the Broadband router to factory, reset the Slingbox to factory, assigned an IP to the Sling MAC address and tried the default ports or even changed to other ports like 443. I even removed the Slingplayer software and reinstalled from scratch, it just will not disaply view and at the end it will through 0x92340011 error. I have tried this with Install assistance and at Slinxbox.com. The player and website can detect my box and I can manage it, but when I try to connect to stream vidoe I get this error.

                                   

                                  This is defnitly something wrong at the Sling server side not allowing me to view Video, or an issue with Player software. I am not sure, I have not changed anything and it used to work for few months.

                                   

                                  So far the suggestions to turn off the router, turn off the slingbox, reinstall the software, disabled Windows XP firewall and Antivirus software..NOTHING IS WORKING.

                                   

                                  It puzzels me that I can still view video with NO ISSUES using iPhone 3GS, and with both WIFI and 3G. I am not sure what else I can do here..!!

                                  I have still few days left to return this box..it is a SlingBox Solo if anyone cares!!

                                      Any resolution here? My Slingbox has been working just fine for almost two years. Yesterday it suddenly stopped. NOTHING has changed in my system or home network.  I'm only running within my home, so the router firewall shouldn't matter, though it is still set correctly. I have tried this on two different computers, both of which have been working with Slingbox forever. I rebooted the router and the Slingbox. No luck. Help!

                                       

                                      I can ping the Slingbox just fine, and it connects, but no video ever starts. The Slingbox is found and shows up when I do Slingbox discovery. Does anybody have any ideas?

                          I had the same issue

                          I cannot connect from a specific computer on my LAN

                          My Office PC is working great, and so is my Android phone

                           

                          I'm on Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit, on a Q9300 w/ 8gb

                           

                          I tried EVERYTHING!

                          I tried reseting my router & SlingBox to factory defaults, tried uninstalling-cleaning the registry and reinstalling

                          I tried every solution i found on the net

                          I would like to mention that there are MANY ppl with this issue, but there are very little solutions, none of the creative ones came from Sling crue...

                          All they are saying is "Check for firewalls"...

                           

                          The only thing that resolved this issue was REFORMATTING!

                          It was a good oppertunity too switch to SSD anyway...

                          The problem was solved, but then it happend again!!

                           

                          So I tried one thing no one mentioned, I restarted the "SlingAgentService" service and VOILA!

                           

                          My TV is working again!

                           

                          I donno what will happen next time I restart,

                          But i'm trying to be optimistic...

                           

                           

                          So you might wanna try that

                           

                          First close Sling Player

                          1. Click Start

                          2. Type "services" and press enter

                          3. find "SlingAgentService" on the list

                          4. right click on the service and choose "Restart"

                          5. Close the Services console

                          6. Run Sling Player

                          7. Enjoy!
