    Frustrated: solo will not reset

    kireol

      I purchased a solo in 2008.  It's collected dust as I've only used it for maybe 30 minutes since I got it.

       

      I decided to dust it off tonight.

       

      I plugged it in and logged in via a firefox browser interface.  It asked me to enter my admin password.  I could not remember it as it has been years.  Also, I have a new router.

       

      I followed the reset instructions.

       

      My device did the blinking lights as shown.  After 30 seconds or so, the network light came back on.

       

      I logged into my 2wire router and saw that that Solo box did acquire an IP.

       

      I set up a hole in the firewall on port 5001 to the solo box.

       

       

      Now the "slingbox setup" in the web browser says "Local Slingbox not detected."

       

      I downloaded the windows player.  Same thing.  Local slingbox not detected.

       

       

      I can ping the slingbox just fine.  The lights are all on.  I've tried "resetting" it 7 times now.
