Means it's not connecting to the RG and getting an IP address.  Try an unplug/plug in reboot of the RG for 30 seconds, then the same on the WAP (wireless access point) near the RG then the wireless receiver.

If you still get the same aerror, the Community Mgrs here will be around Sunday during the day and should be able to help w/things.  Good luck Smiley Wink

Thanks. We'll give it a try, but we have a tech coming out on Tuesday as a backup plan.

Hi jackson,

I noticed a technician did go out and get everything up and running. We just wanted to check in with you and make sure everything was working perfectly.

If you encounter any issues with your service or equipment, I recommend checking out our Troubleshoot & Resolve solutions to help diagnose the issue.

ATT just sent me a replacement wireless receiver because I kept having to reboot my original wireless box after turning it off. I was able to pair the new wireless receiver but kept getting client initialization error. When I hooked up the old box it works fine until I turn off the tv and then I have to reboot next time to get signal back but at least it works then. ATT sent me another new wireless box and I get the same error. Any help?

Sounds like hdmi cable issue on having to reboot receiver, change cable to componet (5 color...red white for audio, red blue green for pic).

To install new wireless requires the removal of old wireless from account.
when is the activation date for new receiver?
