Looks like I'm running out of options, lol.

Thanks again for all your help.

for a linksys router, the default adress is 192.168.1.1 and the default user name and password are:

Username: leave this blank
Password: admin

and in case you didn't figure it out, where I wrote "leave this blank" just leave it blank, don't type that in tee hee

Oh my God... all of rubin's hard work and it came down to entering "admin" in the wrong field!

Problem solved! I was able to change my settings to broadcast the SSID in "b" and my Stiletto now recognizes my router.

Thanks once again to rubin for all your help... and to obk for your one post that pointed out that the smallest mistake can cause biggest frustration, lol

Thanks guys!

I'm glad your working now. Now you have become the expert to help the next person! Sometimes you see a screen so many times and really not read it. I know I have made mistakes like this before, you just take your time and start from the beginning. It's like at work sometimes explaining the problem to others makes you figure out what you are doing wrong. It goes to show you that persistance pays off. We all kept with your problem until you got it working. Good Job to all!

Enjoy your new freedom to move around the house while listening.

Thanks again, rubin. You are definitely an asset to this board.

It was frustrating to me because I can usually figure these things out on my own. That's why it makes sense that it was a simple thing like entering "admin" in the username field instead of the password field that caused all this trouble.

Many thanks to all who helped me out.

Default help with wifi

Hey there Mod maybe you can help me.

I am very tech-savvy so I can't imagine the problems that non-teckkies are experiencing.
I cannot connect via wifi and frankly I think this unit has many issues that were not QC'd. Some of the features aren't in any manual and the tech support people openly admit this. First off, the activiation for the wifi is separate from the normal additional radio activation and can only be done by the tech people over the phone (No web instructions or capability for this). Secondly, there is no documentation of kind as to the requirements from the network specifics such as the opening of the port range.
So my question is, how the heck can I connect?
I am using a Netgear router (MR814) by the way.
I am using no windows based firewall (only router)
I am allowing broadcast of any ssid.
I disabled my encryption
I opened up all ports from 8000-9000. (IP - 192.168.0.1)
Nadda.

Any ideas?

Your device must activated to recieve the satellite streams before you can use Wifi mode.

Is there any message that you are getting from the stiletto?

I couldn't connect to wifi (still can't), even after I activated the unit. Only after I called tech support did she inform me that she needed to push out another activation for the wifi to work and she said it isn't something the use can do from the website. Now that that is done I still can't the darn thing to work and I am very technically savvy and have tried everything on my router side I can think of.
yes it's a b router,
yes my encryption is off,
yes I've opened up ports 8000-9000
yes my SSid is accepting from any name

No clue as to what is missing.

Johnnie, you don't need a special signal for a seperate Wifi activation. Can you please give me the answer to the following:

Can you stream satellite radio content?
Can you stiletto see your Router?
Do you have any MAC filtering turned on the router?
Do you have any special modes like turbo or QoS enabled on your router?
Finally, when you say you are not able to tune to Wifi, does that mean you are getting an error message on your device. If so what is it?

Do you have more than one device registered under your account with Sirius?

No problem at all via antennae
Can you stiletto see your Router?
Yup (and all my neighbors)
Do you have any MAC filtering turned on the router?
I don't have Mac filtering on but for shits and giggles I enabled it and put the device in and it made no difference as I suspected.

Do you have any special modes like turbo or QoS enabled on your router?
Nope
Finally, when you say you are not able to tune to Wifi, does that mean you are getting an error message on your device. If so what is it?
Failed to connect to "the name of my network"

Do you have more than one device registered under your account with Sirius?

Yes, my sportster and of course the stiletto.


Stumped yet?
