Dish Sling Adapter connection failure
I received my new sling adapter approx 2.5 weeks ago, worked great when I first received it. I am having issues connecting from my iphone's Dish Remote Access to my sling adapter when I am not connected to my home's network that began in the last 3-4 days.
Here is the background. I recently updated by iphone to iOS 4.2.1 and I know the Dish Remote Access app was just updated. I have a VIP722k that has a sling adapter connected. The 722k is connected to a Linksys Cisco E2100L that is acting as a wireless repeater. My internet service is provided by Frontier Communications which provides me with a Westell 7500 modem/router that serves as my primary router. Anyway, the sling adapter works great if my iphone is connected to my home network. I am able to watch live TV, DVR'd events, etc. As soon as I connect to a 3G cellular network or connect to a different wifi network, I get the error message of "Slingbox connection lost" or "Slingbox connection failed". Does anyone know how to correct this?? I have seen suggestions that talk about port forwarding, changing IP addresses, etc but nothing specific to the sling adapter. Please help.
