"Awesome! Read this if you have Wifi."5.0 starson by ryork272
Pros: Easy setup. Works with my Smartphone! Works as advertised.
Cons: None so far.
Summary: This is flat out a great product. Period. Products like this do not come around very often. Slingbox really has their act together. I installed it on my laptop and smartphone. Totally awesome.
Okay, if you only have Wifi and NO direct ethernet connection close to your cable box, here is what you need. Buy the Slingbox Turbo powerline ethernet adapter. It is $80 at Best Buy. You get 2 units in the box. Hook one up to your router and hook the second one up to the back of your Slingbox ethernet port. Both need to be plugged into a REGULAR power outlet (no extension cords or power surge cords). Thats it. No configuration needed. It just works. If you need, hold the reset button down (on the back of the Slingbox) until it starts blinking, release and make sure the both the power and network lights remain lit (the network light will blink for about 30 - 60 seconds). Install the client software on your PC's and you're done!
This is a great product. I strongly recommend it.
