I need to know this before I can help you

The time warner cable box to a wireless router (Trendnet TEW647GA)

Linda Cintron :

ok

Linda Cintron :

Reboot the router and try again

Customer:

I got a message that the connection from the slingbox to the internet has been disabled and retried a few times.

Linda Cintron :

Did you reboot both devices, router first than the slingbox?

Customer:

No. I will.

Customer:

I did. I am again at the Initialize step and cannot get past that.

Linda Cintron :

I'm going to change this posting to another expert whom is familiar with the slingbox better than I. Not sure why its stuck. Wait for another expert.

I got to the end but I cannot get a video signal
Expert:  Adam replied 3 years ago.

Did you double check all the connections to the sling box and made sure it is on the network?

 

If all looks good, then I would do a reset on the SlingBox and start over again.

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
