I just purchased the Slingbox Pro HD and am trying to configure it on my network.
My router is Trendnet TEW639GR. A virtual router settings page can be foundhttp://www.trendnet.com/emulators/TEW-639GR_v1.0R/internet/lan.htm
My wireless bridge is Trendnet TEW647GA
I can connect the bridge to my router and the connection is established.
The network light on my Slingbox blinks for awhile and then turns off, meaning there is a network issue.
1. I've added a DHCP reservation for my Slingbox using the MAC address of the Slingbox. What IP should I put in the box on the bottom of this page? http://www.trendnet.com/emulators/TEW-639GR_v1.0R/internet/lan.htm Can I just randomly choose an IP address? Does it have to be in the range of the DHCP Start IP and End IP? Should it be outside of those?
2. I've also forwarded port 5001 using this page http://www.trendnet.com/emulators/TEW-639GR_v1.0R/advanced/port_range.htm . I'm under the impression that when I assign the IP on this page, I will use the same IP as I chose on #1.
Once I add the DHCP reservation and forwarded the port 5001, I should be able to get a solid network indicator on my Slingbox?
Thanks for your help!
I would put something outside of the start/end range. Something like .225.
Then do a hard reset on the Slingbox and check again.
You do forward the same IP on your port forward page but that is only for remote streaming. You should still be able to connect to the router without the port forward setup.
Have you checked to see if any other devices can connect to your router through the bridge just to be sure that isn't the issue?
