My original Exede Satellite Internet setup included an Exede modem, and a TPLink WIFI router. With
this setup I had no problems connecting my AZ HD Premium Plus to the internet and connecting to my laptop to use MAZ to download channel lists, modify them and upload them back to the AZ Box. Then Exede sent me a different modem which included built in WIFI. I no longer had to use the TPLink router.
But, now I can't get the AZ to connect to the internet, and MAZ can no longer connect to the AZ Box. I even tried connecting the TPLink router to the new Exede modem via ethernet cable but still no
good. This is frustrating. There must be something I'm missing. Don't know if its OK to post all my IP addresses here so do I need to have someone PM me so I can give them all the numbers and get some expert help or just post everything here? __________________ AZ Prem Plus HD, 1 Panny 9200HD w/Pan DVBS-2 board, 1 Panny 9200HD w/Illuminati Turbo S-2, 1 Panny 3500SD, 2 Panny 2500A's, 7.5ft Perfect 10 mesh dish w/ 2 Norsat 8115 LNB's, Chaparral 11-1329-1 Dual C-Band Feed Horn, 1 meter Primestar dish with Invacom Quad L/C KU LNB, Stab HH120 mover.

I have an AZ prem hd.[no blindscan]. After you go through the steps to connect, you have to do a re-boot to get it to connect. Hope this helps. Jess out in California

Is your AZBox set to DHCP (automatically sets IP address) if not that may be your issue. If you post your settings that are in your AZBox it shouldn't be a security issue as they are local addresses. If you'r concerned about security you can always use XXX.XXX.X.XX for your IP addresses.

Thanks Jeff and Emil. Tried both suggestions but no joy. I did however finally get it to connect to the internet. I powered up my TPLink router and plugged it in to the Exede modem, put all my old IP addresses in the Internet setup page on the AZ. Hit the "Start check" button and got the same old "Internet not available" error. Out of frustration I selected the "Setup" button at the bottom of the page to see if I had to start from the very beginning. To my surprise I got a message "Connecting" (or something like that) then it said "Completed". What the heck??? Went back up to the "Start check" button again and it said "Stop check" with the dots running across the bottom then it showed my connectivity speed. IT WAS WORKING!!! Is that all I had to do was hit that "Setup" button?
MAZ however will still not connect. I made sure the AZ IP address of 192.168.0.104 was also the IP address in MAZ. Only thing I'm not sure about is the FTP and Telnet ports (21 and 23) in MAZ. Those are the "normal" port values so I assume they are OK. __________________ AZ Prem Plus HD, 1 Panny 9200HD w/Pan DVBS-2 board, 1 Panny 9200HD w/Illuminati Turbo S-2, 1 Panny 3500SD, 2 Panny 2500A's, 7.5ft Perfect 10 mesh dish w/ 2 Norsat 8115 LNB's, Chaparral 11-1329-1 Dual C-Band Feed Horn, 1 meter Primestar dish with Invacom Quad L/C KU LNB, Stab HH120 mover.

All my STBs, and my PCs, are configured to use static IPs, and wired. With static, startup can be faster, as there's no need to query for an IP to get the network up. You might want to try static IP, using an IP outside the router's DHCP range, which is what I do. Also make sure that the router's IP is matches the gateway wherever gateway is asked for in setup. Not all routers use the same IP. Some brands default to 192.168.0.1, others 192.168.1.1, still others 192.168.2.1, and I'm sure there are other defaults. The IP your router uses can be changed to suit your personal fancy as well. Could it be that the router change came with a gateway IP change and that that's where your trouble began?
