Help installing wireless cinema connection kit
I got the wireless cinema connection kit today from Directv.
Normally something like this wouldn't be a challenge for me to install but this has been a total nightmare.
I have an HR34 and two C31 clients in our house. The way it was done when it was installed on Thursday was the DECA was installed with a splitter for power and the cable from the dish connected to the other side of the splitter along with the cable going to the HR34 (something like that). The ethernet cable connected to my very unreliable wireless bridge that's on its last leg.
I followed the instructions for the wireless CCK to a T and I just cannot get it to see my wireless network (or any other wireless network for that matter) unless I connect the CCK-W directly to the ethernet port on the HR34. Of course this disables the MRV and the C31s don't see the HR34.
Talking to Directv tech support was useless, and unfortunately trying to revert back to the way the installer did it is also not working.
How exactly does this thing connect? The instructions say to connect the DECA straight to the Sat 1 port on the HR34, then connect it to the Sat STB port on the CCK-W. The LNB port comes from the dish of course.
I have the black DECA adapter that has the ethernet and Sat/Power ports on one side, and the TO LNB on the other. I can only get the network and power lights to work if I have that splitter with the power adapter connected to it.
What am I doing wrong? Can someone draw me a diagram on how to connect this?
