Hey there, i recently switched over to the IgniteTV and had all but 1 set top box hardwired lan connection. The other box was setup with a wireless connection. I have since ran a cable to hardwire the connection and want to switch the set top box over.
Can someone please help with the instructions on how to do this....
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
@mubashir56 If you REALLY want to get rid of that WiFi connection and only want Ethernet connectivity, here is how you can do that:
To confirm that the WiFi connection is inactive, press and hold the Exit button on your remote for 3 seconds, then key in "Down Down 2". On the Info screen, go to "WiFi Details". The SSID field should be blank and the Signal Strength should be 0.
Thanks but that did not work! When the WPS button is pressed, is it suppose to blink? Well this one doesn’t! Regardless, I pressed the button and unplugged the power. Waited for it to boot up. Checked the status as instructed but it still shows my Wifi is active.
@mubashir56 Here are the directions again, step by step:
When the set-top box reboots, it will no longer be connected to WiFi. "Settings / Device Settings / Network" will display "Ethernet Connection" rather than a WiFi network name.
One more thing: When you disconnect the Ethernet cable, the set-top box will go through a process to discover and then automatically connect to your private WiFi network.
FYI, it also works for me when I initiate the WPS procedure as follows:
