    No, not you, the device that I just received from a long, hard day of Wooting in the last WootOff. http://www.slacker.com/ It looks like an interesting device, if only I can get it to work properly. It refuses to connect to my computer, making it good as a boat ancor for a very small boat, or a door stop for a doll house. In troubleshooting on their site, I find this comment:

    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.

    Now that's intelligent design.. Use the address of 90+% of home routers.. :nono:

    Wow.... I like this thing. It will connect wirelessly automatically and is now downloading my updated "radio stations". I don't need to change anything. ;) RTM

    I've never seen a home router use 192.168.0.1.
    I've seen plenty use 192.168.1.1, and a few use 192.168.2.1.
    There was no need to hide the LAN IP and subnet mask.

    In fact, here are mine. :D
    192.168.1.102
    255.255.255.0

    These addresses are in the private range and have no relevance on your external (WAN) public IP.

    You're speaking to someone who didn't read the manual. You give me way to much credit if you think I would have known that. ;)

    Cedar Park,...
    I had a couple of Netgear that used 192.168.0.1 for the router. I'm on Linksys now.

    Got my Slacker from before the WootOff but when I tried to connect to refresh it it would say loading and never seemingly work. I finally unplugged the USB and it had updated and just never told me. Just one other thing to watch out for if you get it connected.
