    can you explain you have done so far. this is important, understanding your problem makes it easier to help you.

    no network/internet, no channels?. i am sure most people here either connect with WiFi or Ethernet, bearing that in mind that many users would like to know if other connection are working.

    Re: openbox x5 3g modem set up.

    I had a play with one of these the other day and it appears that 3g support is not yet available.

    The firmware currently released only supports hard wired and certain wifi usb "dongles".

    3G support apparently is on the way - but not available yet. I guess you just need to keep an eye on firmware releases as that's the only way the driver for the 3g modem will be loaded onto the box to be able to be used.

    Hope that helps...

    There is an update for firmware dated 11/1/2013 it doesn't say what it changes tho.
    It does also say on spec that gprs is an option (whatever that means)

    do you have to use this 3g connection? i don't think 3g {in general} has taken a big step in to becoming a working option in sat receivers. especially within lower priced boxes
