Evening, random issue tonight that i have never had before?

My VU+ solo 2 has no internet connection, but does have a local network connection.

I use an Ethernet cable straight to my router and have never come across this before and it was working this afternoon fine.

When i run a network test i get the following
network adapter LAN CONNECTION fine
local network CONNECTED fine
dhcp ENABLED fine
ip address UNCONFIRMED
nameserver UNCONFIRMED

I am running openATV 6.4 and grogbuild

Try powering off box and rerun network test again after a min or 2,router might also need a reboot, failing that on box reboot network.

yeah i have tried both of those, including leaving box off while router reboots.

I do have my VU set to a static ip on my router to allow easy connections from within my local network but as i say no issues ever before

i managed to sort this by setting a manual DHCP on my vu solo.

Internet now appears to be fine, not sure what caused it though.

Could another item have had the same ip?
yeah i thought this also, went through my router and checked but couldn't see anything. I have my router setup to give the mac address the same ip.

But i did decide to change the static ip of my vu also just incase.

Grogbuild normally changes nameserver DNS to those of Google
8888
8844
If yours weren't set to these it causes the issue you had
when i have done the manual DHCP i did set the name servers to those, but where else where i have them set to have stopped this in the first place please?

Just to update on this one, so i worked out i could leave my DHCP setting to auto and just amend the name server settings to 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4

This works fine until i restart my box, as soon as i do i lose the name server settings and they go back to 0.0.0.0 for both? I can obviously quickly enough change them back but its a pain every time i restart the box.

Is there a way to stop these resetting every time so they just save on restart?
 
Im getting the same problem with grog build

Have changed above but soon as box restarts I get the no internet connection

Any fix to stop it

When you goto nameserver settings, what are they set to?

Have you tried a different ethernet cable?
 
As above i set them to google then do network wizard as stated

Connects works for afew hours then drops

Have vpn manager connected would that knock internet off

If you use a vpn it will change the nameserver settings automatically
