    No Network light on Slingbox pro.


      I have a Slingbox Pro which the network light went dark.  It will not  reset.  I work in IT and have tried getting on 3 different routers, but  NO network light.  After reading other posts I purchased a new power  supply right from Sling.  Still no change.  Any suggestions now????

          Having the same issue.  We used this thing only a couple of times, and now it's dead after the software updated the firmware.


          Perhaps you can try connecting the Slingbox directly to your computer with a crossover cable, and see if you can get any connectivity.


          But typically, I've found that in cases where the network light never turns on, the box is dead.  You can try Slingbox tech support, but you might as well buy a new box.

                I have the exact same problem - I bought the slingplayer iPhone app, which worked for about 30 seconds. Now the network light isn't on and I cannot connect to my Slingbox.


                My Slingbox was 2 weeks out of warranty at the time of the failure, and I was told there was no means to repair it. So I have wasted money on the app and have a Slingbox that's not even useful as a doorstop.


                This is my 3rd Slingbox (1st one had the same network problem, second one didn't work out of the box). I don't think I'll be wasting my money on another one as they're not fit for purpose.
