Thanks. Reading between the lines I guessed that you have your HDHR
connected to the router rather than to a port on the box. So I moved my
connection from my system's eth0 port to my wireless router, and
got the connection I was looking for.
However, on the setup I'm hoping for, I need the direct connection, so
that's still an issue for me. However, it is nice to know that the HDHR
