    Sorry if this sounds pedantic.

    First can you access the web management interface of your wireless router from your laptop using the interface wireless.

    If you can access the managment interface ping the dreambox.

    If you can't access the management page try connecting the laptop and the dreambox directly with a crossover cable.

    press menu on dm500 remote(have it connected to your tv lol

    then setup

    expert setup

    communication setup

    uncheck the dhcp box

    change the ip to 192.168.2.6

    netmask = 255.255.255.0

    nameserver = 192.168.2.1

    gateway = 192.168.2.1

    put a x in enable network and port is 80

    then green button to save

    now connect dm500 to the router/pc


    open up flashfxp

    click on site manager

    new site

    then you can give it a name, cablebox or whatever

    ip address type in 192.168.2.6

    put the port as 21

    username = root

    password = dreambox

    click apply

    then connect

    All being well you should now be connected to the dm500


    On the right hand window

    goto var

    then keys

    on the left hand window you find the directory where the fix is saved

    just drag the fixed file into the keys directory then and choose to overwrite the file thatís in there

    Reboot the dm50
