Hello guys,
i am using a wirless netowrk to connect mt dbox and it is working fine, i am trying to use an ethernet cab;e to connect my dbox because i want to use my access point somewhere else, i tried to use a cross and a striagt config but both didn't work, the distance between the router and the dbox is about 8 meters, is there any special config for the cable, why didn't both config work?

regards

Straight cable from Dreambox to Router, or crossover from Dreambox to PC, as Dig Deep says, if both don't work, it'll be something to do with your settings.

That wiring's non-standard (4/5 & 7/8 transposed on end 2).

This is not important though, as only 1/2 and 3/6 are used for 10BaseT working.
