I received a new visat box a few days ago. I was able to connect the main dish box to the internet. but not the others. I had no problem with this before. but when I would put in the password. it would add additional symbols when I hit the send button. so it would say login failed. so days later. I am still having the same problem

What are you looking to do? Connect your smartv's to the network? And why did you connect your Dish device to it?

Joan, you need to contact DISH, it's their equipment having the issue. If the main box connects then, it's the other boxes, not the Viasat Modem.

Joan,

According to Dish's site, if you're able to connect your Hopper to the ViaSat modem's WiFi, and therefore the internet, your Joeys should be connected automatically, though you may have to enable them to do so (bridging).
