DVR's wont connect wifi after net down all day

02-19-2013, 07:26 AM
My internet provider had major equipment failure last week, entire area down for many hours, now none of my dvr's will connect to the internet, my laptop does and my Roku does but not direct tv HR dvr's

I tried reset

Is there a way to automatically tell the dvr to look for a new IP if that is what the problem is?

before net went down i had two router sources, dtv was using one and the other stuff was using the other, now for whatever reason the router source dtv was using wont work, but i cant possibly fix that myself, so how do i tell the dvr's to look for the other source that the other devices are using?

Using Your remote-- Go to menu Setting- Network- from there you can set your IP address manual or auto.

You can also test it from there --do each HDDVR.
