I spent 5 hours attempting to get this to work and, in the end, had to send it back. The quick setup guide is worthless and the detailed setup instructions in the online user manual are somewhat vague. A couple of times, I was able to get it up and running; however, each time, the unit would lose it's wireless connection to the access point after about 10 minutes and I was unable to access the user interface. The only option at that point was to hit the reset button and send it back to its default settings and start over. Thus the 5 hour session.
