That is an auto ip link local address (169.254.xxx.xxx). It is the default when the Humax is set to DHCP mode but no DHCP server is found. It allows devices to be connected to form an ad-hoc network. However, there is no gateway so it is not useful for connecting to the internet.Why do you have such an unusual IP address? Is that something you manually set on the Humax configuration screen, or perhaps a default from the factory reset? I don't think your network would be very happy with it as it is on the wrong subnet.
Fair enough.That is an auto ip link local address (169.254.xxx.xxx). It is the default when the Humax is set to DHCP mode but no DHCP server is found. It allows devices to be connected to form an ad-hoc network. However, there is no gateway so it is not useful for connecting to the internet.
The situation is better than I had read into it then. I think it probably boils down to a misconception somewhere rather than a technical problem.Morning black hole. The unusual ip address was when i followed davids and an earlier suggestion from yourself to connect the box to the pc using the cat5 cable.
But can i just clarify incase it got lost along the way, that I do have access to the humax portal bbc iplayer etc both using my dongle and wired connections. Everything is connecting fine (and quickly)
The issue is after a factory reset, the downloading the official firmware and then the hummy firmware, i cannot access the custom firmware to download the sky player. But i still have access to the bbc player etc throught the offical tv portal

Put "http://<IP address>" into the address bar instead of the search engine bar.Still plugging away here, can I also point out that when I try to connect to the web interface using the humax ip in my toolbar I more often than not get a search engine result on ip addresses.
