I have tried every configuration of setting it up/reseting/different computer and nothing works.
Looks like I'll be talking with support over this one.
Welcome me to the club.
I seem to have TWO deaders -- and I'm glad I didn't buy three of them, because the way my "luck" is going I expect I'd have three of them.
They seem to work as routers -- I'm in fact connected to Woot right now THROUGH one of them. Both of them check out OK as wired routers. Both of them are putting out a decent RF carrier that my Zune can pick up. (Zune is NOT set up for wireless synch, so all I can do with it is use it to determine that when the router is turned on, and I tell the Zune to scan for networks, it finds "linksys Unsecured network" -- so, I know that there's RF, whoopie.
However I can NOT CONNECT TO THE CONFIG server in the router!
When I look at the network map in Windows (Vista 32 Home Premium SP2) it shows the router -- with the name and model number reported -- and, if I mouse-over the icon, it reports the router name, IP address, and MAC address -- BUT, when I click on the icon in the network map, it tries to launch http://192.168.1.1/ which just hangs, and hangs, and hangs forever.
BTW, I got NOWHERE using the config software that came with it. It went through all the steps, i.e., detecting my network, verifying that my network was OK, etc., etc., etc., BUT, when it got to the "plug in the router and fire it up" part, it just hangs forever.
Conclusion: the web server part of the router is FLAT DEAD in *both* of my routers.
When my wife gets back I will check if she can connect via her netbook -- I am going to guess at this point that she probably will be able to -- but it is NOT acceptable to me to be running a flat-out/wide-open-COMPLETELY UNSECURED wireless network that can NOT be configured!
I am so weary of this, having spent the day wrestling with these beasts, and trying to fight my #$%@#$% arthritis, I just want to return them, I don't want to exchange them, I don't want to spend a few hours with some guy in New Delhi telling me to reinstall Windows...
Dear Woot... please help us out here. RMA to Texas, please!
EDITED TO ADD: If anyone at Woot reads this (please... please... please...) you will notice the records only showing ONE router purchased on this account. That's because this is my wife's account. The other one was purchased on my account (kodachrome)... so, double the fun, we paid twice the shipping, argh. You'll also notice that between the two of us there are close to 300 woots... and wishing dearly at the moment that the total was exactly 2 fewer. What tragic routers, AIEEEE...)
