    Its your ip address configuration that is still wrong, 'cause you dont need a password yet to com. dcc-Comp and dm. or through the router ip.
    all that communication is through the Ethernet cable to computer and uses correct ip addresses for DM, ROUTER, and COMP.
    It is after that when you use the passwords to connect DM or DCC to the net.

    if they are already connected and you are getting green light then dcc should be able to control dm.
    for communication to the internet, your gateway should also be correct for the dm to be communicated with and software read..
    Just go through the isp address etc set up.
    at times you get wrong password even upto 3 times.
    also read several dm setup instructions on this sight, it will help.

    Configuring Your Network
    Equipment:
    1. Router or switch.
    2. PC with NIC (Ethernet card).
    3. CAT5 LAN cable connecting the PC to your router and your DreamBox to the router. You can use a wireless LAN/Bridge in place of the hard-wired system if you prefer. (A crossover cable also works for those too cheap or lazy to construct a home network.)
    Decision Point: Do you want a static or a dynamic IP?
    A static IP is necessary if you plan to do any recording and if you want to depend on having the same IP when you get ready to use DCC or DreamBoxEdit. DHCP is a protocol that allows a router or other equipment to change your IP address as it sees fit. If you use DHCP the DreamBox IP may or may not change every time you reboot the DreamBox. When the IP changes you will not be able to connect from your PC unless you realize that the IP setting has changed. DHCP is easier if you do not understand how to get your network settings. There are two ways to get a static IP.
    1. Uncheck the DHCP box on Satellite Configuration and enter the correct numbers. (This is the recommended method for obtaining a static IP.)
    2. Check off DHCP and tell your router to “reserve” a specific IP for your DreamBox.
    Recommended Procedure for using DHCP:
    The Nitro image comes preconfigured with DHCP as the default so nothing is necessary if you want to use DHCP.
    Remember, using DHCP allows your PC or router to assign a new IP address to the DreamBox. If the IP changes, you will have to change the IP in DreamBoxEdit, DreamBox Control Center, and FlashWizard.
    Recommended Procedure for Setting up a Static IP:
    1. Determine your Network settings if you want a static IP.
    a. You will need the IP address of your router and decide what IP you plan to use for the DreamBox. I recommend using 192.168.0.24 for your DreamBox since some software comes preconfigured with that IP.
    b. Your DreamBox and router must have the same numbers in the first 3 sections of their IPs. i.e. If your router is 192.168.0.1 use 192.168.0.24 for your DreamBox. If the router is 220.120.34.6 then use 220.120.34.24 for your DreamBox.
    c. If you are not sure of your network settings you can find them from your PC. Go to Start and click Run and enter cmd in the blank without the quotes. Enter ipconfig at the prompt. IP Address is the address of the PC you are on. Subnet mask should usually be 255.255.255.0. Default Gateway will be used later and is typically your router IP. (You can initially select DHCP on the DreamBox Communications menu and the DreamBox will fill in a few numbers for you. You can use the numbers to change to a static IP.)
    2. Press the Menu button to bring up the toolbar at the bottom of the screen. Look for the Setup icon and press OK. Go to Expert Setup then to Communication Setup.
    3. Here you will enter the addresses for your network so you can communicate with the DreamBox from other PCs and so you can get to the Internet from the DreamBox if needed. This is also the location for choosing DHCP.
    DHCP: Uncheck this box or you won’t be able to fill in the following blanks.
    IP: Is the IP of your DreamBox. Assign it as described above. Usually, 192.168.0.24.
    Netmask: Just about always 255.255.255.0.
    Type: LAN
    Nameserver: Is usually the IP of your router. Usually 192.168.0.1.
    Gateway: Is usually the IP of your router. Usually 192.168.0.1.
    Be sure to check the Enable Network box and select save by pressing the Green button or highlighting save and pressing OK.
