Question about Sling Media Computers & Internet
Six months ago, I installed and set up a Slingbox Pro. I ended up calling their tech support and we got it to work fine. Football season ended, so I haven't used it since February. Heading out of town this weekend, and turned on Slingplayer just to ensure it still worked. Naturally, it doesn't. Two hours on the phone with tech support and they're now telling me it won't work. They say both SlingLink receivers need to be on the same circuit. I say this doesn't make sense... it wasn't on the same circuit in February and it worked. Wireless router is upstairs in office, slingbox is in basement on the other side of the house. Can anyone help me??? I know just enough to be dangerous!
I had the same issue with the slinglink and decide to replace those with a new set of D-link gigabit powerline adapters (found a pair for $20 on eBay). Before replacing though, I would hook up a laptop to the slinglink and see if you are getting internet through it (run a speed test if you do). Slinglink might just need to be reset and paired again. In any event, Technology has come a long way since the slinglink, so you can't go wrong with upgrading powerline adapters for Slingbox or just for general use.

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.
