Question about Sling Media The Slingbox Pro

1 Answer

Slingbox Pro was working properly until I needed to reset my modem. Now both lights (power and network are lit), but Slingbox isn't functioning. I've tried the reset button, but no luck. When I try to connect on my iPhone, I get a box saying Invalid Password, but entering the correct password just gets me a repeat of the same error message.

Hi first thing i would do is reset the slingbox back to factory settings and start from the beginning. You can get the steps on how to do that from the user guide located at this link:

Reset ESI 2833 until red light turned green. Network Printer still not responding


Check the IP Address of the 2833. I believe there is a gray button you can depress to print out a configuration sheet. If the wireless modem was also your router, you may have a different IP address range and will need to set the 2833 accordingly.

Hi Linda,

Here are somethings to try. You should not have this problem if you have cable internet. If you have DSL service make sure the modem is in bridge mode, next make sure the settings are MTU enabled and finally place your setting to 1492. If you need further assistance please email with all information on yor set up and the DISH Network account number.

Sling Box Pro - No network light, No light in logo, only power light on. Therefore won't connect to network. Was working fine. Tried reset button and also power off/on. Only the red power light is on.

If you are getting a light on the Sling Box indicating that it is connected and powered on, you may check your Internet connection to the receiver to make sure you are actually connected.

You can check you Internet connection on your receiver by pressing the Menu button on your remote. This will display the Main Menu on your TV screen. Press 6 (System Setup), 1 (Installation), and 9 (Broadband Setup). Once you are on the Broadband Setup screen, press 1 (Network Setup). An IP address should display on the Network Setup screen. You can also run a connection test on your receiver. If you continue to have problems connecting, you can give Sling Box a call to troubleshoot the Sling Box. Here is a link: http://support.slingbox.com/go/home. I hope this helps.

I am trying to connect a slingbox to my home network, but my network cant find the slingbox, do you have any ideas?


Depends on how the Slingbox is configured. It should be set up to use DHCP and try to get an IP from your router, either by wireless or by hardwired ethernet.

I would help if you could details how your network is configured.

Cheers,
Ripface.

Cannot connect remotly to the slingbox


Hi! I will be more than glad to assist you in this concern. please check this first at your sisters house..
If you are at home of your sister and are not seeing your Slingbox in the SlingPlayer Slingbox Directory, one of two things are going on:

1. The Slingbox is not properly connecting to your router.
2. You have security software on your computer preventing it from talking to the Slingbox.
3. The network connection to your Slingbox is broken.

If the issue is that the Slingbox is not properly connecting to your router, the network light on the front of the Slingbox will either be off or be blinking.

If the network light on the front of your Slingbox is on, then the issue is probably virus or firewall software.

Your Slingbox is all set up, the Network light is on and still you can't find it in your Slingbox Directory in SlingPlayer.

Most of the time if you are at home and in this situation, the problem can be narrowed down to one of the following:

* Your router or router configuration has changed since you plugged in your Slingbox.
* Security software on your computer is preventing your Slingbox from communicating with your computer.
* You've more than one router on your home network.
* You've accidentally connected your computer to your neighbor's wireless network.

If you are using a router on the home network, routers have a built in firewall and in this case. The Slingbox uses port 5001 when it communicates with your router, so this port needs to be open for your Slingbox to send video outside of your network.

please feel free to get in touch if u have any question..

Cannot connect remotely


I had a similar problem with my Slingbox Pro. After some time I realized that the problem was with my router, not my Slingbox. I tried a new router, but that router didn't work well with my Slingbox and Tivo. So I put the original router back, and I plugged it into a timer that automatically turns the power off and on once a day.
