Anyone do a serial null modem connection on this unit. Bought the cable from 9thtee hooked it up. Followed Otto's directions. Don't even get any garble on hyperterminal. I'm trying do do my initial setup. #211 test call fails while saying it's dialing. Help please????
Is the ,219 what you used? Again it should be ,#219 if you go that route. Also, be sure there are no extra spaces or characters in the dial prefix. However, most current computers and TiVo support ,#211 very well. Did you assign static IP addresses in your computer setup? Assign something like 192.168.1.28 and 192.168.1 29 for a trial pair.
After you modified the c:\windows\inf\mdmhayes.inf file, did you immediately delete the associated c:\windows\inf\mdmhayes.PNF file and reboot your computer?
Okay, I have a DVR40 and I am trying to use PPP as my initial connection, is this okay? or do I need to have my initial connection through the phone? I've used the procedures here and attempted to get it to flow through my laptop on a wireless (linksys 54G) network. I still get a failure to negotiate error. Any ideas?
Also, if I do need to us the phone, can I just carry the unit to someone’s house or does it need to be hooked to the satellite dish at the same time?
