If you are using an AT&T supplied 2-Wire router - then I have the same setup.
It does work.
First you can check to see if DHCP is doing the job.
Go to your router address:
(something like 192.168.1.254:5000) < they should have given you this on install)
Look at your network and see if the DVR is there.
If so, note the address.
Now go to setup on DVR and see if it has the same address.

If not...
You don't need to change the router to static, but it helps to change the DirecTV dvr to static.
I have the HR-20.
Give an address in the range of those leased by the router.
192.168.2.166 or something.
Make sure your first 3 octects match your router ie: 192.16.1
Just go to setup on the DVR and change it to the hard IP address.
If the router is not uPnP (2-Wire is not), then you may have to open a port or tow to get DirecTV VOD to work (maybe not or I don't remember which ones, googe it.)
The IP Mask should be 255.255.255.0.

Open the screen with the button below the lower DIrection Switch.
It is the you go for
'Find SHows'
"manage Recordings"

If you see a new entry entitled "Pictures, Vedeos and more" then you are online.
If not --- google some more.

How to find dvr ip address


Hi,
what do you want the DVRs local IP address on your LAN or your internets public IP address?

to see the local IP that the DVR is on, check the menu's in the DVR as if configured properly you should have it set up as a static IP on your LAN...

if you can not find it there, you should be able to log into your router and view connected devices... some routers are better than others, but you will probably only be able to see devices that are connected and assigned an IP address from your routers DHCP table..

if you want your public internet IP address then go to http://cmyip.com but in order to view your DVR from a different location on the internet you will need to set up port forwarding on your router - the DVR manual should show what ports need to be forwarded...

you may also want to consider using a dynamic DNS service if you do not have a static IP from your internet provider... most DVRs that I have encountered provide a dynamic DNS service..

Thanks,

Have a DIRECTV mobile internet stick, which plugs into a USB port to have internet access. I want to make my internet access a wifi access. What do I need to do this ?


If you do not already have a wifi router you will need to purchase one, install it and connect your Directv receiver to it. If you do have already, you will have to go through the settings on your Directv receiver to setup a wireless connection.

What steps do I take to configure my 2wire 2701 hg-b to connect directly by ethernet cable to my Directv HD DVR and pick up the dsl signal being transmitted by my primary westell router? Both are wireless...


Connect the cable at both ends and do a red button (inside card door) reset of the DVR. To test the connection, do thus: Menu -> .....setup -> system setup -> network setup -> test connection. If it shows not connected then "reset defaults" and run "connect now"
As a basic security feature the ATT DSL 2Wire 2701HG-B router/gateway requires you to enter its pre-assigned WEP key to connect beyond the unit itself and then to the internet. Since the Direct TV DVR HD24D only does a basic connection without having a place to enter the 2701HG-B WEP key it never actually reaches the internet.
The 2Wire 2701HG-B has the ability for one attached unit to "pass through" its firewall and internal security settings using a so called "DMZplus" mode. I set the HR24D DVR to such a mode within the 2Wire unit and the DVR connected with the internet flawlessly.

Yes... the device you are looking for is called a "wireless ethernet bridge". They allow ordinary wired ethernet devices to communicate wirelessly. They are also known as "wireless gaming adapters" for XBox 360 and Playstation 2, since niether have wireless cards

Trying to connect to directv dvr for ON Demand services via ethernet cable, but directv dvr doesn't recognize connection


Run your DVRs outomated network setup.. If this fails, you will have to get the ip settings manually. to find them, use a computer that is connected to the router.. Do start, run, type cmd, press enter. In the black window that comes up type ipconfig /all this will give you the settings the DVR wants. choose manual setup from your DVRs network connection menu.

How to configure 2 Linksys router and connect to Direct TV DVR on demand?


No configuration is necessary. Simply run a RG45 cable between the router and the DirecTV box. DirecTV will begin communicating immediately with the internet.

Got a dvr video system. connecting to network problem


I love it when people provide so much information such as the make and model of the DVR and the ISP. Makes it easy to figure out the problem, which in this case is most likely the ********* who is asking the question.
