I recently purchased a Slingbox PRO-HD and the iPad software to view HD on my iPad when I'm away from home. When I setup the Slingbox using their web-based configuration program, it reports that I do not have my network configured for the best performance for internet viewing, which is what I need for the iPad. I suspect that I don't have port forwarding for port 5001 correctly setup on my system. I can successfully connect to my Slingbox away from home on my iPad and my laptop, but the performance is indeed poor.
I have a cable modem and two E2000 routers. The first E2000 is connected to my cable modem in my home office and the second E2000 is in my home theater. I used Cisco Connect on separate PCs to setup the two routers. Here are the details:
Model DPX2203 Series
Part number 4006351
'Ethernet' connected to Router 1 'Internet' connection.
IP address 192.168.1.1
'Internet' connected to Cable modem.
1. Seagate network storage drive
2. Desktop PC
3. Desktop PC
4. Router 2
IP address 192.168.2.1
'Internet' connected to Router 1 'Ethernet 4' connection.
1. Slingbox PRO-HD
2. Desktop PC
3. A/V Receiver
4. Blu-ray player
How do I setup port forwarding for the Slingbox PRO-HD on port 5001? Also, what is the best way to setup two E2000 routers so that I can use both as wireless access points?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
