I tried hooking Ethernet up to my Joey just to see what would happen and my router is right next to it. When I check my connection on Joey it says it has a connection. I'm not able to do anything though. When going to VOD it just says I'm not connected. When I go to the Hopper it show no network connection either, which expected.

SOL until a fix comes. You could ask Dish what's going on. Just giving it a day or two may help. It might take care of itself. Could just be in a software update.

I have no idea. I'd wait a day or two and then maybe contact Dish.

try to reset your receiver. had the same problem and a reset fixed. I had a friend where this didn't work, waited overnight and it worked fine the next day. If you get impatient you may want to try to put your hopper in the DMZ in your router? seems like a good idea.

Isn't the preferred connection to the Hopper? And Ethernet connections to the Joey aren't supported yet.

Ethernet or Internet? This is not a subtle distinction.

Does your router report that the Hopper has an IP address?

Does your Hopper report that it has an IP address in the 192.168.x.x range?
