DirecTV is very particular about connecting to a wireless network.
Your chances for a connection improve greatly....but cannot be guaranteed......if you observe these guidelines:
The name of your wireless network cannot contain any special characters like an apostrophe, asterisk, dollar sign, exclamation point, etc.
Use only letters and numbers in the wireless network name
Do not exceed a total of 12 characters in the name
Do not enter any blank spaces in the name
Use the same guidelines for your password
