The only problem I'm having, and I feel fortunate in this regard, is I can't get my Slingbox working. It was working fine on FIOS. Now I get disconnected from the Slingbox while configuring it. This happens on my LAN; nevermind when trying to catch an afternoon Phillies game at work. So either my Slingbox failed while changing services (quite a coincidink but possible). Or there is an incompatibility with my new service provider. I would guess having to do with the Comcast provided Netgear WNR1000v2-VC router.
Does anyone have any success or failure stories with Slingbox and Comcast?
i have two slingboxes, one at home (Comcast) and one at my parent's in MI (also Comcast). both work great.
with a new router, you most likely have to set up a port for the slingbox on the router. directions for how to do this are found somewhere in the Slingplayer "Help"
EDIT: just remembered that the port setup is for internet viewing... anyway, for your issue, try hooking slingbox directly into cable modem and see if you can connect remotely... that'll tell you whether or not its the router.
