Yes I can help you... Do you know how to access the routers programming? If not open a web browser like internet explorer or Netscape. Enter the ip address of your router in the address bar of your browser. By default the ip address should be set to 192.168.10.1 or 192.168.1.1 By default the username is
admin and the password is motorola. Now you see a menu says Motorola broadband wireless router... Click Networking you should find all the relevant information your looking for in there look for the tab that says Port Triggering. SlingBox requires you to forward the 5001 ports. So name the port trigger SlingBox1 make sure its enabled and set TCP incoming to 5001-5001 Another one should pop up name it Slingbox2 set to UDP ports incoming 5001-5001 and that should be it. Now click the ADD button and then click APPLY at the bottom of page.

I am trying to install the d-link ethernet switch to my virgin modem 256. I can succesfully get either my PC or my laptop connected to the internet but NOT both at the same time. Any ideas how to solve...


You need two cables one from the Modem into the internet port on the back of the router and another from Computer Port 1 into your computer then you should be able to connect via wireless. If not get onto the router CP and check the settings.

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.

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..

Wireless router


My suggestion would be to first disable any encryption on the router to make your wireless network simple first to try and troubleshoot these problems. check if any MAC or IP Address filters are active on the wireless router, you can either enter the IP address of the slingbox wireless adapter or its MAC address if you HAVE enable filtering, but again, try diagnosing without filtering or encryption enabled. Also ensure your slingbox wireless adapter has its settings set to 'automatically assign IP address (enable DHCP)' so it gets its address automatically.
