Ethernet connection between router and Freesat box

My technicolour router does not recognise my freesat box, which is an EchoStar HDS-600RS via Ethernet lead.  This should connect "on demand" tv like bbc IPlayer.  Any help would be great Undecided

Does it have an information page where it shows the IP address etc of the Freesat box ?

Check you have the box set to "Get ip by/via DHCP"
