Do you mean the HT2000W's WiFi altogether, or do you mean your DirecTV receiver's WiFi access to the HT2000W?

The HR54/200 Genie, after the update, the "settings" became very unfriendly. 

I didn't setup ethernet to the receiver so it first looks for wi-fi signals (cant stop if from doing that) 

SO I can change my password, so that the DirecTV HR54/200 Genie  will be declined access. 

Dam wi-fi Moochers. I'll cut em off!!!!    Smiley Happy

Ah, yeah, the Genie's can be EXTREMELY annoying.  I made that mistake of connecting via WiFi once, just to test it, and when I reset the network through the Genie's settings it stopped the Genie from trying to connect, but it never stopped the constant hounding about wanting to reconnect.  I finally got so sick of it that I did the only thing I could do to stop it... a complete factory reset.  It wiped the DVR, which aggravated me due to having some things on there that I really wanted to keep, but it was worth not having that annoying reminder fifty gazillion times a day.  Smiley Tongue  

 

I wish I still had my regular Genie.  My Genie II, which has the Ox114b (got it Jan 10th), only bugs me once in a while, but if I were to connect it, even for a minute, then reset the network so it was no longer connected, I have no doubt it would hound me just like my original Genie. 

 

Does resetting the network in the Genie not stop it from trying to connect to the WiFi on its own?

I was gonna ask about that. I guess I'll find out when I turn my tv on.

My phone is relentless too. After the last phone update, It started to send me two notifications every 5 minutes.

One for No Data connection, and one for No Service connection. 

I FIXED THAT.  i TURNED on airplane mode every time I come into my house. 

I already knew I was out of cell coverage. 

 

I tried to re-set network for the genie, It didnt WANT to be set because wi-fi was already working.

Smiley Happy It isn't NOW. (heh heh) we'll see and I'll let ya know

I had to work some to get the HR54/200 Genie to forget about the old network. 

I may have done something to the router. After restarting the Wi-Fi  (  >Administration>Reboot) I think the date on the System log has changed. Mine Now says Dec 31 19:50:07.  it's UTC    10:52 EDT What Date do you have?

I'm pretty sure that's normal.  I think it's just showing the logs from the factory settings.  I've seen it before, too, though I've never rebooted the router part of the modem before.  If I reboot I just reboot the entire modem, whether by power cycling or rebooting from the Advanced Configuration section of the System Control Center.  I've never had a reason to reboot the router.    

 

It could also be that it needs to reconnect to the HughesNet servers to get current information.

 

Edit:  I just tried the reboot, so I'm seeing what you see.  I'm sure the log dates will match the current time soon.

I first turned Off SSID enable for all the wi-fi.

I noticed that DirecTV was still trying to connect and was being disabled but then reinabled every few minutes in the log.

So I decided to reboot the w-fi. The warnings said the settings would not be changed. 

 

I went to the livingroom to the TV and Ran internet setup. The info was still there, next re-set network connections.

After running the test equipment, Genie told me an error message and said "It must be YOUR router, call Y

OUR manufacturer"

Hey I was getting somewhere!

Ran internet setup again and sure enuf all the IP addresses and Gateways were gone and  There is RECONNECT NOW after the word Settings in the menu. YEA!

 

Now I cant watch TV on my smart phone and On Demand wont work.   oh pooh

couldnt stream very well anyway
