A rep at Onkyo seemed to think it is my router. When I reset the receiver, I get zeros for the IP address, etc. After I add the network cord, I get an ip address of 169 etc. The Onkyo rep said it should be in the 192 range. I upgraded the router firmware, but that didn't help. I picked up a D-Link router last night, but I am hesitant to substitute it for the Linksys I am using, since everything else in the house works fine with it.
any other thoughts?
the 169 is default ip if the hardware is not getting an ip address, try this, turn off the onkyo, pull the power plug of your linksys, pull power plug of the modem wait 10-15 sec, power one by one, first the modem, once the light kinda stabilizes, then power the router then wait until it stabilizes then power all other equipment, make sure the etherenet cable is not plugged in to first port plug it in on the 3rd or 4th port
hopefully this works
