    Can you post some info how to reflash the box and why it's needed? I have a mag 256 and having a lot of issues. Mine was working great yesterday and watched 2 football matches right through. However, today it's been a right p.i.t.a. All I'm getting now is page loading error in red lettering. Yellow sign on the left in yellow and the world logo in grey. I've tried 2 different portal addresses rebooted factory reset no joy. Internet is working fine on my Amazon box. Ethernet : enabled. I.p not available. Can anyone help?

    make sure your network settings on the MagBox are set to auto (dhcp)

    it looks like your router is not assigning an I.P Address to your magbox. You could always try setting your magbox up with a static IP so that your router doesn't have to assign one.

    I would imagine only use lan cable or wifi mostly cable is better,sometimes rebooting box and router it might then get an ip

    Network on box says no connection? Is lan cable going to router and checked with another device to see it flashes?
    wifi disabled on box and using lan cable,is their a wizard to run on these boxes for setting up.I dont have one so unsure.

    Yes all checks out. The lan cable works on other devices. As I said everything says enabled apart from internet connection

    So no flashing light at lan port could mean its faulty

    No harm to check in a m8s house if it works there or not?thinking if your router was blocking a connection?
