I've just spent the last 5 hours trying to activate my Main Repeater with very little luck. I've read the PDF's on this forum, disabled all firewalls on both my router and computer, disabled all anti-virus programs... The closest I got was a brief connection when the Main Repeater was connected directly to my laptop. When I tried to activate it, the software said the Repeater needed a firmware update. It gets 13% into the process, then gives up stating I need to power cycle the Repeater. I did this about 10 times and gave up. Rebooted my entire network about as many times too in order to ensure all firewalls were off.
I don't know if the problem is my computer that's running Windows 7 Home Premium or if there's something wrong with the Repeater? I've run out of ideas.
