Directv will not connect to Westell 327W

I have just installed a wired connection between a Directv HS22 receiver and the Westell 327W router.  My network has addresses in the 192.168.1.40-50 range.  The default address for the receiver is 169.254.9.253 with a subnet mask of 255.255.0.0

I get error 22 (Not Connected) to the internet on the receiver.  The Verison application screen for the router shows my two PC's on the network but not the receiver.

When I change the receiver's address to be consistant with the other IP's on my network (192.168.1.41), the application shows the receiver's address  but there is still no connection.  I can not ping the receiver. I can ping either PC from the other. 

Directv's answer is to call the Geek squad!

Any help would be appreciated.

After a whole bunch of troubleshooting help from the folks at the DBS forum, I tracked the problem to a misswired cat 5 cable that I made.  Once I correctly placed wth wires in their correct locations, all worked perfectly.

Thanks to anyone willing to look at the post and try and help.

I looked at DirecTv receivers and I don't see the HS22. Is that a typo?

You are correct, my mistake it is an HR22-100 HD DVR.  Hope that gives some better information.
