    Slingbox loses internet connection after a few days

    wolph

      I have a slingbox hd pro connected to a Dlink DIR-615 router using comcast cable as the internet service.  Occassionally, during internet viewing, I lose connection with the with the slingbox and the error message states "there was a problem communicating with the slingbox.  try connecting again."   The only was to correct this is to manually cycle power on the slingbox itself.  If this problem occurs while I am away from home, the slingbox is useless until I return home.  Is there anything I can change to correct this problem?

          Try setting an internal static ip address to the slingbox both from within the slingbox's setup assistant's option to do so as well as within your dlink router. I had a simular issue with it being reassigned a new internal address by my dlink router almost everytime I signed into the slingbox as it would tend to grab the first available IP address which conflicted with the 5001 remote viewing port's assigned ip.....
