Hi mates,

I cannot get my DM7020S to connect to the internet - Neither through my router nor through my PC through internet sharing.

I couldn't flash an image through networking it to my PC - had to use a null modem cable instead.

Tried the Gemini 2.40 and also the original image on dreammultimedia's website but no luck.


What are my options?? Have already contacted dreammultimedia's technical support.

Could not flash the DM7020S using Dreamup or Dreamcontrol centre.

The network icon on my PC's taskbar shows a cross i.e. it does not recognise the dreambox when I switch it on. But will try again and will let you guys know the problem.

I suspect the router is fcked. Will try tonight and keep you guys updated (Maybe my crossover cable is not good too).

Any idea on how to update keys/download cams without the network port on a DM7020S? Will wireless networking work with the Gemini 2.4 - I have read that only some 11mps usb card works. Any advice on this will be much appreciated.

Thanks

There is a known problem with Gemini 2.4 and if U have a cam in the extra slot

A fix is on it´s way

If U have a cam in the slot, remove it and try again

Not using a CAM.

My router is wokring fine - It is working okay with my Dbox2.

But this is very very strange:

I could share my PC's internet connection with the DM7020 through the network port and I could update keys and access internet.

So, the DM7020 network is working and I could also connect to my PC but it did not work with my router!!! It was working fine with my router before.

The LAN light on my router blinks for few seconds and then dies out (But it works fine with my dbox2 and also if I connect my PC directly to the router).


I have just read this post:

It seems that the DM7020 is not good!!!!!

I could update keys by connecting the box direct to my router today for 1 HOUR only - then it died again.


Am I and the "whatsthis" member here the only ones having this problem??


Is this a hardware or software defect with the DM7020S receiver??
