Default connecting to direct tv

I have the Netgear universal wifi adapter wnce2001. I plugged it into my HD Dvr hr23/700 and the power and LAN are a solid green. The WLan blinked for a bit and is now not lit up. When I check for connection on the tv it says no internet connection My computer internet is working fine, and able to get service on my laptop in the other room. Any suggestions?? Thank you

Of course I read the book.All it told me to do was hook it up, and it made it sound like it would connect magically Do you have any suggestions of how to do that. Thanks again.

Windows 7

Plugs USB power adapter and plug provided ethernet cable to the WNCE2001

Once the Power LED is solid green, unit is "GOOD"

Open the browser and should open URL http://www.mywifiext.come/welcome.htm

Choose language

Hit next and it will go through status bar and look for "available" wireless network with following

SSID name
Channel
Security type
Signal Strength

It also includes "manually input my wireless SSID" for use who hides broadcasting of SSID

Choose your SSID and hit next

Provide your pass phrase and hit next

It will go through the status bar for connecting to the wireless router. After 1~2min it should come up with "You have successfully connected to wireless SSID NAME "

HIt finish. It will also ask you to save to your browser's favorites list. Close the the browser and open browser again

If you are using Win 7 it will ask your "network location" you can close or specify the type and save it




this get the WNCE2001 to connect existing wireless and you should check with pc so that it works.

if this happens to be ok then next setup is to hook with direct tv and if works. if still does not get IP from your main router then you may need to setup static IP on direct tv

Good luck and setup should be easy 5min.

I would suggest your main router encryption is WPA or WPA2
