IceBox1 connecting via ethernet
« on: April 28, 2008, 03:11:20 PM »
I have a Netgear IceBox 1 which performs perfectly for Ice updates.
However, I have just added an Apple AirportExpress to my system, and it doesn't like using WEP passwords. I've set it up for WPA, but of course, now the IceBox won't connect to the network as it can only habndle WEP.

So...can I connect the IceBox to my network with an Ethernet cable to the AirPort (so it's no longer using its own WiFi connection)? I've tried it but can't see the IceBox on the network...

Can anyone let me know if this setup would work and if so, how?

One day I hope to upgrade to an HD PVR, but not just yet.

Thanks,
Kev.

Fixed it!
I had to downgrade the AirPort Express to firmware 7.3 from 7.3.1 (easy to do) and then it accepted my WEP password.
