It's been several months since I've run into a situation like this, but I've had problems getting a WCCK to connect to a different network if the network it was originally connected to is still present. IE: Customer connects to neighbors unsecured WIFI and then wants to switch it to their WIFI instead. Saw this on a service call and even using WPS couldn't get that sucker to connect to the correct network. Grabbed another one out of the truck and connected like a charm.

Also, as far as that the technician taking the WCCK... My office has a huge bin of reclaimed equipment (LNBs, multiswitches, CCKs, WCCKS, DECAs) that goes back to DTV. Hopefully that's where this one was headed. I always ask customers before I take equipment and maybe 1 in 20/25 wants to keep it. The reality for most people of it collecting dust on a shelf is usually why they give it up.

Should you run into this again, the factory reset [small recessed button above the connectors] will return the WCCK to the same condition as pulling another off the truck.

Tried that, didn't work. As soon as it got done resetting itself, the WLAN light illuminated & it was connected to their neighbor's WIFI again. Maybe a one-off... :shrug:

I've been doing this with the WCCK since the early testing days and it's always worked.
If you went back to the old network, it didn't get reset.
This is the button that needs a paperclip to press and it may take a press & hold but it's always reset the WCCK back to factory settings.
