    Box  connected to laptop - Bridged connections

    warmo161

      Hi there, got my box running today but I have a problem, we are still waiting for a network cable so I decided to connect the box to my laptop so it has access to the internet

      Now, I can access the box through the laptop, but if I use any other device on the network, it doesn't find the box

      I guess its somthing to do with the laptop, I just need to know what

       

       

      Also, I know it is a bit off topic but is there anyway the box can record external inputs??

          Hello warmo161,

           

          I can definitely understand why you contacted us in regards to the issue you are having with the Slingbox. Due to not having a home hardwired connection you will only be able to view the Slingbox on the laptop itself. Once you have a network connection you will be able to view the Slingbox from other components.

           

          Hope this helps.

           

          Best Regards,
