Congrats on your gift. :smileyhappy:

 

You mean the UV Wireless is slow?

 

You should be able to plug it into the Ethernet port on the DVR.  I gather that will be for firmware upgrades, or streaming with Netflix and the like?

Thanks for the response.... yes, want it for netflix, etc....

 

Will try connecting the dvr to bluray via ethernet....

 

but happened to be on with phone support just now and they said it doesn't work :smileyhappy:

 

I have the 18Mg service, but the wireless says it only gets like 345 throughput....

and netflix, etc... says it requires 1.5M at least....

 

the shine is wearing off my christmas gift already - boo hoo...:mansad:

I would try connecting it to the web anyway.  Come back here and ask for suggestions.  Just because cs said it won't work doesn't mean it won't.  IMHO

I agree, at&t's CSR's will say anything, definately when it's not supported by at&t

 

@JBT-I would say try it, it should work:smileywink:

I'm sure others here are doing it, but I couldn't find the posts where I read it.

My Blu-Ray player doesn't have wireless and I have it hooked up to the ethernet port on the back of the STB and it works just fine.

I have a Seagate Freeagent Theater+ media player connected via the Ethernet port on the DVR.  It does work well for streaming media from my PC to the media player.  Some third party apps (Tversity and PlayOn) seem to buffer a lot and I wonder if a direct wired connection to the RG would be better?

Wow.

 

A huge big thank you to outfanindallas and dhascall. It never even occured to me to connect my Blue Ray player to the Ethernet port on my Set Top Box. Prior to doing so, I had a wireless connection that was so-so. Netflix would buffer periodically and streaming content from my computer was an exercise in frustration.

 

Not only does the wired connection work, it works far better than the wireless connection. Thanks a bunch for the tip!

I believe that I am getting another Seagate FAT+ media player for Christmas.  This one will be connected to a TV near the RG and I will see how differently a direct connection to the RG works compared to one to the Ethernet port on a STB.

 

BTW - the Seagate FAT+ is still carried by Newegg and the price fluctuates between $39 and $49.  I bought my first for $83 (on Clearance) at Best Buy.

Plugging in an ethernet cable not only works from the DVR box, it'll work from a regular set top box as well. This is a very convenient bonus to having U-Verse - essentially, you get free Ethernet outlets where ever you have a box installed. Old news for many, I'm sure, but I didn't know it so I thought I'd pass it along.

Does anyone know if a simple switch plugged into the back of the STB will drive both a TV and a Blu Ray player? I use the connection for my TV, but wonder if I can also simultaneously use an Internet-enabled DVD player.

I agree, its a blessing using the available ethernet port.

 

My 4+yr. old Ps3's wifi has been losing stability when I try streaming netflix and vudu I would need constant buffering and it would get constant drop outs.So looking around these threads I see some users connecting their gaming/blu-ray players connected directly with the rj45 port and having no issues.

 

I was a bit nervous doing so,so I tried and it has been working like a champ.I just make sure both my stb and PS3 arent on at the sametime.

 

My only question is I have 18mbs 1.5 internet and when I run a speed test on my laptops,I get around 15-17+Mb up and then when I run a speed test from my PS3 wired to the stb I get a 6.75 mb up result ?

 

Either way I hope its not an issue using the available ports after awhile...

Friends of ours (retirees) just bought a brand new Win7 laptop and also can not connect to the RG.  Just 8 feet away.  Wired works but not wireless.  Seems like a common Win7 / 2Wire issue?

I wonder why this happens?  Some people can connect to the UV wireless with no problems and other have to jump through hoops.  Make sure your laptop's wireless switch is turned on.  I have seen that happen when connecting to any wireless source.  That is the first thing I will suggest you do.  Let us know if that resolves your connectivity issues.

I doubt that any kind of firewall configuration is the issue.

 

To troubleshoot this, you really would have to look at some network packet captures from Wireshark to see if you could pin down what is resulting in the delay.

The issue with Win7 doesn't have to do anything about having the wireless card on or off, I had the wireless card on, and was able to find the RG, but during the process of connecting to the RG, it fails before the point it asks for the WPA credentials, making it so you can't type them in (it fails before the text field comes up), but at the same time, the same setup works fine on any pre-7 (Vista and earlier) version of Windows, all linux based OSs (including smartphone firmwares), and any "Airport" Capable Mac OS

 

 

It is possible that the router firmware used on the RG, or possibly even the WiFi radio, is in some way incompatible with Win7, it's the first time I have heard of such an incompatibility, but for the same thing to happen on 2 laptops running Win7, and even dhascall having the same issue with Win7, It's hard to say it's not an incompatibility issue

I never had a Wireless problem after I switched to 7 RC (from XP), and that was using the UV RG (instead of Air Port Extreme that was used as WAP when I had problems here).

 

BUT, after getting the new laptop with 7 installed, I cannot connect automatically to my WAP once the laptop is turned off (or battery dies).  The tab is actually missing to set it to auto connect to preferred network (but it was there before).

 

I don't know if it's a 7 issue, but something happened here.  I just keep my password handy to cut and paste every time I need the Internet. :smileysad:

For those curious, I got a second Seagate Freeagent Theater+ box and I direct connected that one to the RG and unfortunately, Hulu via PlayOn still has stuttering issues.  Could I configure the RG to allow a more stable stream like a user did here?  Can anyone give me step by step's for the Seagate, if it would help?


 

I doubt that any kind of firewall configuration is the issue.

 

To troubleshoot this, you really would have to look at some network packet captures from Wireshark to see if you could pin down what is resulting in the delay.

 


Thanks SJ!  Will poke round with Wireshark to see what it shows.  Any chance of adding that sort of functionality to UVerse Realtime or is that apples / oranges?

I bought a new Win 7 laptop that connected immediately wirelessly, and I have a Win 7 laptop upgraded from Vista that connected as well.

UVRT is meant as a system monitor and U-Verse-specific troubleshooter, not a general-purpose network troubleshooting tool.

 

To figure out what's wrong with your setup will require a more generic approach which is what Wireshark provides.  It will give you a packet capture from the network, and then that has to be interpreted to see what is going on.

 

If you need assistance with this, save the packet captures and then PM me.
