  1. When setting up your system, if the Winegard setup screen says "ANTENNA STATUS" not connected, check what port the ethernet cable coming from the roof portion of the Winegard system is plugged into. As delivered, mine was plugged into the port marked "Ethernet" and the software indicated that the antenna was not connected. That ethernet cable needs to be plugged into the port labelled "POE" and then the Antenna Status should report "connected."
