I have a Humax Foxsat HD Satellite Receiver I use in the UK.
I saw on channel 999 and at BBC Iplayer on Freesat that the BBC Iplayer is available on beta to humax users with a broadband connection. As a previous Virgin/NTL subscriber the one thing my wife and I miss is being able to watch the IPlayer on the television so this sounded great. The problem is my router is a good distance away from the television but I have a wireless router plugged into the back of a cisco plugged into the back of my NTL modem so wireless seemed just the trick.
Freesat seem to recommend homeplug adaptors (ethernet over house wiring) but a) my main router and modem are on a seperate circuit to the rest of the house and b) homeplugs seem to have got a lot more complex now than they used to be requiring matching up sender with receiver and a computer to register the IDs and c) I've used all the ethernet inputs to my cisco router.
As a result I thought all I need is to make my Humax Fresat receiver wireless and the Belkin F5D7330 (designed for xboxes etc) seemed just the trick as it would plug into the back of the Humax and provide wireless connection.
My wireless network is WPA2/PSK/AES for obvious reasons and after while with the Belkin and a laptop I had the Belkin working fine. However, unplug it from the laptop and plug it into the back of the Humax and although the ethernet light and power light came on the wireless light refused to come on. I could plug it into the laptop, get the wireless working and then plug it into the Humax, the wireless light on the Belkin will stay on but it still does not work (definition of working being the Humax menu settings for network show an IP address obtained and/or hitting the red button on bbc1 showed the IPlayer.
The Belkin supports DHCP and manual IP and so does the Humax (via the Humax Network menu). I've tried all combinations and it just does not work.
I've answered a posting on avforms at Humax Foxsat HDR and Belkin F5D7330 Wireless Gateway where someone else had the same problem and I am monitoring it but if anyone else has any ideas I'd love to hear them.
