I work on computers everyday but I will admit, when it comes to this network stuff, I'm very ignorant.
Yesterday I finished a couple of Ethernet runs in my house and got my 5500 hooked up. It immediately found the network and started updating the InternetTV. I got Netflix and Pandora up and running and with a 20MB connection, they both worked flawlessly. Now here is where my ignorance shows.....
My system is a Qewst VDSL modem that then runs to a small 5 port switch in my network panel and then distributed to any given room.
After turning the 5500 off, I turned it back on again and tried to go to NF and Pandora but the 5500 said no network connection is available. I unplugged the BD, then the switch, and finally the modem to no avail. Later that night, all worked flawlessly again. Any ideas from anyone?
This morning I thought I would just try to connect since the modem is on all the time even if the PC isn't. It didn't work, but when I turned the PC on, the 5500 went right to work. Does my computer have to be on for the 5500 to see the network?
Also, when ever I try to go to that Accuweather channel, my 5500 just freezes up and I have to power down. Anyone else with this problem?
