View Full Version : Network Troubleshooting

OK, I have a Series 3 and a Series 2 on a wired network on 192.168.1. The S3 has a static IP address of the S2 on .11. I can ping them from other machines on the network. There's a Lynksys router at connected to a Cablevision cable modem. Every other PC on the network can connect just fine to the Internet. The TiVos fail to connect. "Failed while negotiating" is the error message.

If I go To View network diagnostics, the port configuration and DNS tests pass. The TiVo service connection test fails. I tried restarting the TiVo as suggested.

This setup has been working great until today. The one change is that I had to swap out my old Linksys router for a new one that supports a VOIP phone line. But every other machine on the network can see out just fine after the swap.

What can I do?

Ummm. It seems to have healed itself.

Good to hear that its working now. Perhaps the new Router and the TiVo box hadn't done a proper "hand shake" yet or some such thing. Mute point now I suppose.
