Quote:Quote:So which bluetooh adapter is best? Southern Stars recommends the RN-270.
Quote:all I can find are the RN-270M , and the RN-270F. does it make a difference which one? I have been looking for this answer all day. (on and off) also, can anything any cheaper than $100 be found?Theo

Quote:well, I am not sure what ios means,(IPOD Operating System?) but from my reading and playing with my stuff, I found most androids are not what is called "ad-hoc" enabled. when the Starseek is fired up (wi-fi) my computer sees it, and can connect to it. likewise the IPOD Touch of course sees and connects to it. my Android phone and android tablet do not see it. from what I understand they have to be rooted (read jailbroke) and the have software installed that only works with a rooted device, in order to have an "ad-hoc" network work with it.I'll bet that my PSP will see and connect to it! I know that it has ad-hoc capability. even though SkySafari will probably not work on PSP O/S.in addition to this , SOME Android devices ARE ad-hoc capable, but they are far and few between, and I do not happen to own one of them.Theo
Quote:ok Chris, can you be a little more explicit please? what router is of what you speak? brand? model?thanks.theo
Quote:How do you physically connect the router to the scope?
Quote:I tell ya, I come up with the wrong stuff all the time. so, the only out I got is to blow another hundred bucks on a bluetooth serial adapter. Thanks, Theo
Quote:"Anyway, you can fire up the router, enable WiFi on your device of choice, and you should be able to connect to the router. Open your browser and type in http://192.168.1.1 and hit enter or what ever. This will take you to the router setup page."Cliff, this doesn't work either. I turn on the router, and the laptop connects to it, but the setup program does not complete. it just keeps telling me there is no internet connection. which is true, there is none. it wants a hardline eithernet connection to the internet, and I do not have one. this is the same problem I had with the last router.http://192.168.1.1 this does not work either. I tried it on my tablet when it was connected to the router, and on the laptop when it was connected to the router... and got nothing.so how does one connect the SkiFi to the router?are you sure one does not need an internet connection to make these work? or at least to get them setup?Theoha, ha, "wizard gets you up and running in 3 easy steps."
