So we have a downstairs bedroom with issues related to VOD.....is the Joey directly connected to wi-fi to support VOD programming or is it connected through coax with Hopper? I ask because we sometimes have a weak wi-fi signal in that area and I am wondering if that is the problem or if it is receiver related.
In laymanâ€™s terms, think of the IP on the Joey as the drive way, and the Hopper as the neighborhood street. The Hopper also has its own drive way as well. It could be that the router has a hard time getting out to the client IPs. I was having trouble with my router recently, so in the router settings, I put the Hopper in a DMZ and now it works great. Now, I will say this is a terrible explanation on how it all works, but it gives you an idea of how it is trafficked.
