I noticed in my first post I forgot the important word "not"
Slingbox Connection Problem
I am sadly really starting to get seriously annoyed with my sling box. The simple problem is that it will NOT connect. I am LAN connected to the only router in the system by cable. My slingbox is LAN connected to the same router. I have 2 solid red lights. The sling player software does not find the slingbox. The internet connection wizard says there is "a problem connecting to the slingbox".
I have looked at my router config D Link Dir-16 - I can't see anything in there wrong with firewalls etc. I have tried disabling my antivirus, reseting router, reseting slingbox. Nothing seems to work and I am under a lot of time pressure to get this working as I have to leave day after tomorrow for an overseas posting...
Is there anything that I may have forgotten? The internet provider is Canal Digital in Norway.
Well finally I have resolved the problem. The trouble is I don 't know where the problem was. Here is what I did...
I tried an alternative router thinking that there was something in the original D-Link causing problems perhaps firewall or some other configuration. This then produced exactly the same symtoms - so that made me think that Canal Digital were blocking some ports or some such. I was about to call them and jump down the phone and I started playing a bit more.
I reset the slingbox for the umpteenth time - in fact at that moment I did it a least twice. (2 or 3 pushes on the reset button for about 10 seconds. Put it back and reconnected and all of a sudden I got the message "would you like to configure your slingbox".
I could not beleive it. I still don't undersand what happened - I have tried reseting at least 20 times over the last days.
Anyway the main thing is that all is working as it should - router configured for internet and all.
I hope this helps some with some other people.
Best regards and good luck,
