    Static IP Address


      I have a Slingbox 500 and trying to configure the networking settings. Unfortunately, I don't see any option to manually configure anything other than choosing the wireless or wired network options. For some reasons it is not possible to have DHCP enabled in my network and the only option is to have static IP to all my hosts. Is there a way to have static IP configured in Slingbox 500?

          No.  "Advanced" network configuration options such as manual IP addressing and manual port selection aren't available with the Slingbox 350 or 500.  It's DHCP or nothing (although you can use a static DHCP reservation if that's an option).  You also could use any of the Slingboxes other than the 350 or 500.


          Along the same lines I can't get to my Slingbox 350 from work since I can't select a port I know is open on our firewall, so my seven-year-old Slingbox AV continues to have a useful feature my 350 does not.
