I installed my GenieGo to my wireless router per the instructions. I have 4 HD DVRs, including one Genie, and they are all connected using Whole-Home with the SWiM system. The GenieGO network light is blue, the status light is yellow, and the activity light appears to be dark and not lit up. I have unplugged everything and plugged it all back in again, and nothing has changed. I downloaded the GenieGO app on my computer and it says "No HD DVRs found." Any suggestions?

Please tell us your modem and router model number

How exactly is the GenieGo connected to your home network router?

My modem and wireless router is a combo unit provided by Time Warner Cable. It's a Motorola SURFboard SBG6580. The GenieGO is connected to the router with the Ethernet cable that came in the box.

For starters, leave the Ethernet cable connected to your router/modem and disconnect AC power from the GenieGO, wait a couple of minutes and plug it back in. On each of your DVR's, press the dash :smileyminus: button and confirm that the resulting message indicates Internet connected.

I unplugged the GenieGO and left it unplugged for a few minutes before plugging it back in. (I've done this 4 or 5 times today, but just did it again, just in case) I also checked all 4 DVRs and they all say SWiM Connected and Internet: Connected. Unfortunately, I have the same result, the GenieGO is not functioning.

How long are you waiting? The GenieGo might be downloading and trying to install updated software. Leave it alone for a few hours and see if all three blue lights eventually come on.

Shutting off the gateway firewall seems like a good idea, but there doesn't appear to be a Firewall control on the administrative capabilities for this SURFboard SBG6580 cable modem/router. The GenieGO has now been plugged in all day and the status light is still yellow and the activity light is still dark.

According to what I've read after Googling the issue, this modem claims to have "advanced intelligent design" and you can't shut it off. Maybe I could take the GenieGo to another network to get updated and then bring it back to my house and try again??

I found directions on the Motorola web site for shutting off the gateway firewall, which I did about an hour ago. Also restarted everything again. Unfortunately, this hasn't made any difference. The GenieGO lights still won't turn blue.
