    ROUTER LOSING SETTING

    thepressgang

      Every time I set up my Slingbox to work over the internet it is OK for a short while and then the router seems to lose the ability to stream over the internet and I have to go through the setup all over again.

      That means that when I go away I will not be able to use my Slingbox.

      Any ideas will be helpfull.

          Most likely the problem is that the Slingbox is getting a random DHCP address with the lease expires.  I would recommend setting up a persistant IP address.  This can be done by using a reserved DHCP or static IP address for your Slingbox.  This way your port forwarding rules aren't made invalidated when your Slingbox gets a different IP address.
