What model of receiver do you have. look for the model number inside the access card door.. 

How are you connecting your DirecTV® receivers to the internet?

I have not changed the way they are connected from day one. I went from Cable modem to dsl and back to cable modem. This time, i can't connect them. Same company and using my Asus router to connect all my devices. Even if I input the IP's manually, internet not connected.  I don't want to have a Directv tech come out and have to pay the fee for something simple.  I am not at home to explain the connections, but I have not unplugged anything since day one

Are the receivers displaying any error message? When you mentioned "... I cannot connect...", how are you not able to connect?

Check your computer's IP address and gateway address; gateway address must be the same and the 1st three sets in the IP address must match on the receivers and computers.

The 169 addresses are the ones the receivers use to communicate with each other via whole home. They are called link local addresses. If the router is correctly set up, then it will give the receivers a second address which will be their internet address.
