    Firmware Update download freezes at 25%


      My slingbox solo has worked flawlessly for several years.  I just moved and hooked it to a new network/router (Apple Airport AC w/ 2TB cloud drive), and reset it because I forgot the password.


      Now it freezes when it tries to upgrade the firmware, every time at 25%, without fail.  Then it sits there for hours before saying there was an error and to try again.


      My (ignorant) thinking is that there was a freeze in the first firmware upgrade attempt and now it is glitching.


      Multiple resets have not changed the outcome.


      I've tried several ethernet cables, plugging it directly to the router (rather than the ethernet wall jack) and nothing works.


      Thanks in advance for any ideas.
