I have a new Samsung TV in living room connected to Directv via HR54/200.
My Wireless Internet allows me to connect to such as Netflix/Prime etc..

In a bedroom I have another new Samsung TV, this is connected to a Mini-Genie (C41-500?)
If I try to connect to such as Netflix/Prime etc., on this Bedroom TV I get the message that I am not connected to the Internet.

If I click on Menu/Settings/InternetSetup it tells me I cannot use Network Setup on the Client.
It goes on to say that I can setup Internet Access for all clients by going to the Genie and using Menu/Settings/InternetSetup

From the Living Room TV I reconfigured my Wireless Internet Setup but it made no difference on the Bedroom TV.

Is this Not Possible ?????

Thanks Dave

The Genie mini gets it's internet access over a MOCA connection (Multimedia over Coax), so it will be pulling it from the Genie. So as long as your MOCA network is OK, the Genie Mini should be able to connect to the internet.

But this won't help you with being able to access Netflix/Prime on your TV in the Bedroom. You will need connect your Bedroom TV to your wireless network to use those features. The Genie Mini has nothing to do with that.

Yeh you need to configure the internet on your TV. Not the client. Directv has nothing to do with your tv connecting to the internet
