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.
