              This is a poor answer, frstly it assumes that you are not away from home a long time and secondly i get this error sometimes and other times slingbox works fine away from home so it is definatly not a problem with the configeration I have spent the last 6 months in australia ,indonesia and india and i have noticed that in somebodies home the slingbox works fine most of the times but in hotels airports and log on internet providers i get error w202 ,In India i inquired and they are shapping the broadband to exclude the use of slingbox because it gobbles up data volume at an enormous rate and i can only assume that this is happening else where.Now that internet usage is going to be charged by data volume in many countries this will be the future.
