I am trying to connect a second 45xx replay to my Mom's network, and everything "appears" to be working except that I cannot stream between units. Here is a little info that may help someone assist with this issue...
1. Both units are 45xx
2. I hooked both units up to my own home network (4 replays), and it streams fine both ways from all units.
3. When on my Mom's network, both units "see" each other, and will display each other's Replay Guides.
4. When I try to stream a show from either one, I get a window stating that it is unable to play the show.
5. If I try to stream again, the Replay pauses, then reboots.
6. Neither have many shows in the Replay Guide (less than 10).
7. Both units will connect to the mothership for channel guide updates, etc.
8. Both units are set with a static IP.
The network is wired as follows:
Each Replay is connected to a single wall jack connection installed in each of the two rooms that run to another 2 port wall jack in the room where the router is located (Cat 5e), then from the single wall jack, 2 cat 5e cables connect to a Linksys Router (wrt54g), which is the network gateway device.
Both jack runs are wired identically.
Since they both connect to the mothership, I never suspected I would have a networking problem when adding the second replay. However, based on my limited network wiring experience, I am wondering if the networking cables that run from the wall jacks to each replay are 568B cables, should the cabling between each individual wall jack be wired as an A, B, or crossover? It is currently wired as a B also.
IE: Cable from each replay are B's, wiring between jacks are B, Cables from jack to router are B's.
Should the jacks be wired as crossovers, or A's?
The only other difference I can think of, but might really be a long shot, is that the zip codes are different between the two replay's at my Mom's house. This is due to one replay using a cable box and the other is not. Since the channel guide is correct in another city for her cable box, it is using a different zip. Could that do it?
Any other thoughts?
Getting to the age where the scalp is getting a little sparse and this issue is getting to the point of my starting to pull more out!
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
