This is driving me freaking nuts, my newly installed hopper 3 keeps loosing the internet connection and reverts back to an ip of 169. I have moved the ethernet cable from bottom to top and its no better, I have rebooted modem and router and still had issue. So i figured wireless was the way to go, unfortunately I can no longer watch DISH from work because the internet connection is not good enough (35mb down 6 mb up) I thought I had a similar problem with my original hopper back in 2012 but I cant remember how it was fixed. This totally screws up watch dish anywhere. This morning on the hopper 3 settings showed MOCA connection and an ip of 169 with obviously no internet connection. Sorry for being long winded. Thanks in advance.
