I have a 500 set up in the US and it works great. Can get video from my US box in China where I often work. I recently purchased another slingbox 500 to connect to my satellite receiver in my house in China. I really only wanted to be able to connect on my LAN because the satellite receiver is in a bad location for watching TV. I tried connecting through wifi and wired LAN. Slingbox can discover my wifi and retrieve the IP but can not connect to the internet. My only assumption is that there is local or China firewall issue preventing access to the server the slingbox tries to connect with on initial set up. Is there anyway around this?
