Make sure the IP address 192.168.0.1 is not being used by another device.
Windows ICS automatically assigns the device using the connection the IP address 192.168.0.1. As of right now, we have no way to alter or change this. You can check to see if another device on the network has this network address by following these steps:
Unplug the Slacker Portable Player from the USB connection.
Start a command prompt window. (You can find a shortcut to this by going to Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt, or by going to Start -> Run and typing CMD in the dialog box.
Type the command ping 192.168.0.1 in the command prompt and press Enter.
If the pings all fail or time out, that means no other device on your network is occupying that IP address.
If the pings all succeed, that means there is another device on your network using that IP address. You will need to identify that device and change its IP address in order for Slacker to be able to connect.
Of course, if I check for that IP address, I find that it is being used by my "Default Gateway". I thought I had a Systemax computer, not a Gateway . Actually, I assume that the "Default Gateway" is probably my router, correct? If so, what dangers will I have in changing it and how do I go about doing that???? I'd love to get this thing working.
