    Can't setup SlingBox Pro for internet viewing

    pizzmoe

      Hello,

      This may be answered somewhere else in this thread, but no matter what I try, I can not get the Sling to setup for internet viewing. I see it on my computer on my home network. I have set up the IP address, port forwarding, enabled, set the IP address,have reset it a few times,  but it still won't work. I'm wondering if it has something to do with the IP address ending in 254 and perhaps that number is too high. Can the IP address be changed?

      Otherwise, nothing I do works. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Thanks!

          Hi, pizzmoe.

           

          Most of the times, the SlingPlayer applications (web-based and SlingPlayer software) will use xxx.xxx.xxx.254 as the default IP address for the Slingbox. However, you must access your router interface in order to look for the IP address provided by the router for the Slingbox.

           

          Just keep in mind that the IP pool in some routers will not accept this default IP address, since it is out of their range.

           

          Once you get this information, you will be able to finish the Setup Assistant for Internet Viewing.
