hi people...

i have a DM 7020 newly bought , and i have a LAN by a provider through a cable modem using an Arris cable modem , no routers. the problem is that my i.s.p limits me to use 3 p.c's and somehow each p.c has to be registered and given a specific i.p upon it's first connection.

the problem now is that i tried connecting the DB to the p.c using a switch without any luck , tried using the built in web browser to register the DM as a stand alone p.c but there were problems viewing the registration web page (told me i needed java) , so i heard that there are certain cable routers that could solve this problem.

if anyone has the least of knowledge concerning this problem please dont hesitate , i need all the help that i can get.

regards

Just a quick answer... Make sure your ip is the same in the dreambox. Check communications panel.

If you want a permanent fix, buy a WiFi router and connect your cable modem to its WAN interface and the rest to the LAN sockets. Your cable modem provider will never discover the extra PC's & Dreamboxes masqueraded by the router.
Any WiFi router that claims to be broadband enabled will do BUT ensure that the WAN socket is Ethernet and NOT Telco. Also go for G as its bandwidth is enough for live TV broadcast from the Dbox.
