To add to this post:
If you plan to buy or make up the cable, there are 2 types. One is a patch cable that is used if the receiver is going to a network switch box which then gets connected to a PC (your laptop). The second is a crossover cable used to connect the receiver direct to the PC (nothing else in between). If the wrong cable is used, you will have no connection to each other. Both types above are not connected to the internet. I was looking all morn. for my crossover cable and could not find it. Guess I will go now and make up a new one to play with the dsr6050.

All i have here at this time are GIGABIT ethernet patch cables. I do have more cables somewhere. I think the way Mr_Uplink was saying is, im going to hook-up the dsr 6050 directly to the computer. So i need a crossover cable than right?

99% of the time, newer ethernet hardware will auto negotiate the crossover when using a straight through cable.  It's been years since I've had to use a crossover cable.  All modern network hardware will detect the link and "software" cross the connection for you.  

After looking at a few of my units at work today, I have found that there are at least 3 versions of firmware for the 6050.  Of the multiple units I have, only a couple of them actually work with the GIG-E port.  The firmware that you listed is not one that I have at the moment, so I'm not sure if it will in fact support it or not?  The only thing I can suggest is to try it and see...............

You will want to first start by connecting your laptop to the GIG-E port and see if you have a link light.  If you do, let me know and we can proceed to configure the unit and get to some serious testing!

I have a couple of 4410-MDs at home, which are similar and I will walk you through the setup.  [biggrin]

Excellent!!

First thing we need to do is get connectivity to between your laptop and DSR...........

What version of Windows are you running?

We need to set up a static IP on your laptop and the DSR.  Under the IP Menu, change the GigE IP address to 192.168.0.2, the subnet mask to 255.255.255.0, and the default gateway to 192.168.0.1.

Then we need to change the GigE port mode to SPTS (passthrough), and change the GigE destination address to a multicast address.  For simplicity, use 239.10.10.10 and use port 8000.

At this point, the DSR is configured and you shouldn't have to ever change any network settings for the purpose you are using the DSR for.

---------------------

Now we have to configure your laptop:

This will differ depending on what version of Windows you are running.  Once I know that, I will help you out with it.  [biggrin]

Open the windows 8 start screen. Type Control Panel and press enter.

Step 6:
Click on View Network Status and Tasks.

Windows 8 control panel

 

Step 7:
Single click Change adapter settings on the left side of your screen.

windows 8 control panel change network adapter settings

 

 

Step 8:
You might have more than one network connection listed here. You will need to determine which adapter is your ethernet connection. Right click on your network adapter and choose properties to open up the properties window of this internet connection.  **** IGNORE THE PICTURE AND CHOOSE YOUR ETHERNET CONNECTION.  NOT WIFI ****

windows 8 control panel select network adapter

 

Step 9:
Click Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4) and then the Properties button.

windows 8 lan properties

 

You will see the following screen:

windows 8 setup static IP address

Your settings should be set on "Obtain automatically".  Change your settings to match this picture.

Let me know once you get to this point.  [cool]

The Ip address that is in my unit is 192.168.054.100 ,it will not let me change the decimal point? On a higher note the subnet mask number is the same as mine. 255.255.255.000

Ok.  In that case, lets make the IP on your PC 192.168.054.101 instead of the 192.168.0.151 in the picture.

Lets also make the default gateway on both the DSR and your laptop 192.168.054.1 instead of 192.168.0.1.

DC2,

I just grabbed a couple of clipart pictures from Portforward.com to assist you in configuring your laptop.  There is nothing that needs to be downloaded, they're just reference pictures,  and 239.100.100.100 is fine.  We can work with that.  [smile]

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well.
