Did the TV lose its internet connection?  Or the DirecTV DVR?  What model DVR?  How is it connected to your home network for internet access?

I have Comcast modem with Netgear router. The tv no longer has Internet connection. It is a genie with the Deca adapter attached to router. Everything has been reset numerous times. The internet is working on everything else. It seems the signal is not going through. All cables have been tightened. Modem rest router reset and tv also. I keep getting error codes when I attempt network set up. I even did an advanced set up to no avail. I had the connection in the morning

and lost it in evening.

You say "the TV no longer has internet connection", but I assume you mean that the Genie DVR no longer has internet, right?   Some TV's have their own internet connection.

What model number Genie DVR?  HR34 or HR44?

What's the message if you press the remote's "Dash :smileyminus:" key?

What happens if you disconnect the DECA Adapter and connect the Genie's ethernet port directly to your router?

It is the genie 34. Message is 22. It is not possible to connect directly due to where modem is located. Unfortunately, the room where modem and router located was only place available in my home. When I do everything and error message appears it recognizes that Ethernet is connected but cannot make connection to internet. Everything worked great for approx. 8 months then poof?

The DECA BB adapter that is connected to your router should have 3 lights on it.  Are all 3 green?  If not, tell us which are what color or off.

Disconnect AC power from your router for a minute or so.  Plug it back in and as it boots up the C Link light should turn green.  If it doesn't, it means the router is not connecting to the DECA BB adapter.  Did you check the firewall (must be off) and the DHCP (must be on) in the computer?  If those items are set properly and no C Link then I'd say your router, or the Ethernet cable connecting the two devices, is failing.

I already did the disconnect. Since it was working fine, with no changes on computer, I bought a new router and changed Ethernet cables all to no avail.e is it possible the Deca went bad?

The blinking C link means that the DECA is not seeing the coax network. To confirm the DECA is bad, you can connect a receiver there instead.  if you get a picture then the DECA is bad, no picture and something is "wrong" the cable feeding the DECA

I want to thank everyone who helped. I finally figured out it was the cable. The last message did it and I am now connected.
