I ordered a Homeplug for my sat tv. The idea is you plug the unit into any electrical outlet and into your router. Then you go into the set-up area on your Sat TV Box and aqquire an IP address. After going through the process nothing happens. I called Dish and they were no help. Any ideas. I have a 2wire router from ATT. The Homeplug is from Sling. It is a SL300-100 It has a MAC address. I was thinking maybe I had to set up a new device almost like adding a computer to a wireless network. Any ideas?
Thanks For Your Ideas

Ive never been a big fan of using house electrical circuits for anything else but power distribution

Since surge protectors and similar devices may interfere with the high-frequency signals used by HomePlug, the directions included with HomePlug devices recommend plugging them directly into the wall outlets without using extension cords or outlet strips.

In residences and small businesses with Split phase wiring (common in North America), roughly half the 120-volt outlets in the building will be on each hot phase, and HomePlug signals may or may not be able to get from one side to the other. If one is unlucky, this may prevent some rooms from being connected via HomePlug.
