I am having problems downloading stuff with directv on demand. It says i'm connected to the internet on directv box and all the shows and stuff come up. I'm connected from my linksys wrt120n to my directv dvr. I have cable internet, 15mb download speed. When i go to download something it autamically pauses the download and it won't download anything. I know it's not my box because i tried it a couple days ago with my at&t dsl connection and it worked but it was kind of slow cause it was dsl. What am i doing wrong? Do i have to open up ports or something on my router? I'm stumped. Thanks for any help.

I suspect that there is a problem with the IP address. I assume that your router is using DHCP to assign IP addresses. Maybe the router is not assigning it correctly when it's connected to the cable modem.
