Hi guys, spent a day trying to figures this out…Help please?
Bought a LIve Hub and a Netgear N150 router. Setup new router…I get internet fine with the router on my Windows 7 64bit computer.
Hooked up Live Hub to new Netgear router…light on router flashes ocassionally from the port the cable is plugged into but when I run Automatic in Network Setup on the hub I get “Unable to obtain an IP addresss. The WDTV has limited or no network connectivity”.
so I went into my router settings through 192.168.1.1 and wrote down all the numbers I found for network address, IP address, subnet mask, gateway IP and DNS etc. I dont know what all they mean but entered them manually to the hub in Network Setup. Still nothing, same error message.
I tried plugging ethernet cable from Hub directly into modem and then I do get the internet on the Hub and can use Netflix. but if I plug into router again, I get nothing.
Tried plugging Hub directly into back of computer with ethernet just to see if that would have the computer and Hub see each other but they dont.
Is there something I missing? I tried restart button on bottom of hub already. Firmware is the newest via a thumbdrive upgrade. I realize it’s more work to get my computer to see the hub after reading all the post in this forum…but for now I’d just be happy to get the internet to my hub through my router.
Any ideas?..am I an ■■■■■?
