Hello. My current DVR box is Serial: SACDQBDWC and MAC: 44E08ECBD3C9. Is there any way of knowing what version this box would be or how many newer boxes have come out since. I have been getting more locked up recently and when I reset my cable box I lose my recordings. I have a feeling my version is just too old
how long have you had it??
Let's see, 2021 - 2015 = eleventyteen?
Ugh! You're still in denial.
You initially installed the Scamo as your network...then reconfigured your Dells (SSID & key) for the Scamo...fail...then troubleshot...fail...then reconfigured your network with an AP...then had to restore your Dells (SSID & key) to the AP...then asked about older devices and the Scamo on the Forum...got mad...so, yes, t'was "worth" it to you. It was worth it but Cox denied you this worth.
Renting a router, being deprived legacy devices, failing to troubleshoot, forgoing any technical reason and merely swapping something you can't figure is not "...running my own stuff for years." It's conformity, intransigence, surrender. You just gave up and accepted whatever Cox will allow you to do.
no reconfiguration, plug n play with old netgear router, plugged into scamo rj-45 jack, like i've mentioned several times.
i didn't get mad, just stated my workaround several times for folks with the same issue, with older devices.
you don't seem to get it, the dell is used infrequently!!!
You're doing the imaginary point again. I outlined how you had to reconfigure the Dells but you ignore it and proclaim you never reconfigured the router.
No reconfiguration? How'd you know your Dell wouldn't work with the Scamo?
It doesn't matter if you use the Dells or not. You originally valued connecting 'em...but the Scamo failed you...so you had provide a workaround.
If the Dells weren't worth the hassle, you wouldn't have connected the other router in the first place...but you DID!
this may be hard for you to understand, your work arounds didn't work
the laptop needed to be up-to-date with av + contact list for traveling.....not a daily working laptop.............how many more times do i need to say that??
bearone2 said:your work arounds didn't work
My workarounds? If anything, I asked for more info and suggested basic checks but you gave up. What were my workarounds?
Why won't the Scamo allow your Dells to update their antivirus software and travel list? Goodness...computer security and word processing are such basic functions...but the Panoramic router from Cox denied you these functions? You spends hundreds of dollars per year year-after-year for this thing? I'd only have 1 workaround for the Scamo.
different pw for 2.4 than 5.0 + update nic card.
no av update because the laptops don't/won't use scamo unit but do av updates with piggybacked router.
i don't know or care why they don't connect but thanks for taking such an interest!!
