In the network settings of the Foxsat-HDR have you got an ip adress ?

What do you mean by netgear router/internet adaptor ?

I have a Netgear router for my network and also have a Netgear WiFi internet adapter connected to the Freesat box

You can't just connect a wifi adaptor to the box it doesn't have the drivers you can install on a PC.

You either need

A direct cat5 cable from the box to the router.

A wireless bridge like this one

NETGEAR WNCE2001 Ethernet to Wireless Adapter - Bridge - 802.11b/g/n - desktop: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

Or a pair of homeplug adaptors.

eg

That should work, I assumed you were using a wifi usb dongle for a PC.

You need to set up the adaptor with your network wireless log on details as per the manual. It's not plug and play, if it was anyone close enough could access your network.

Sorry have not replied to your message, been away, what you said was the answer to the problem, it is working a treat. New question, how can I archive recorded progs from the freesat box?

Connect a usb drive to either of the usb ports and use file manager to copy them (EXT3 drive required for files larger than 4GB).

Or install the non standard firmware which allows you to ftp recordings directly to your PC.

In that case they must have fixed the problem in a later firmware release. It never used to work.

Found this from 2009

MoneySavingExpert.com Forums - View Single Post - Toshiba 1Tb External hard drive £69.98 delivered

Caused a lot of problems on launch and Humax finally admitted only EXT3 worked. None of the firmware upgrades have ever mentioned it ever being fixed.

The Freeview-HD boxes work OK with EXT2 though.
Hmm the wily old fox Leopard , I may just be lucky with my Iomega then, mind you it is formatted with 3 Partitionns on it 1 NTFS 1 Ext2 and 1 NTFS perhaps that has confused the Hummy:rolleyes: I Think I may reformat it with ext3 though just in case you never can tell.
