PC-Client 1.6.10 will not connect with WiFi
« on: 2013-10-25, 08:10:29 »
I have tried the new PPC 1.6.10 and the connection OK stays greyed out.
I have updated two different Windows 7 computers. Neither will work.

I also have tried to update the firmware on my RRC-1258s. The new version
changes the comm port number and my Kenwood ARCP-2000 will no longer connect.
I downgraded to an earlier version to be able to use the software.

I have a similar problem, but I am using Windows XP.

I have been using RRCMicro 1.6.6 for about 2 months with great success.
I have loaded RRCMicro 1.6.10 and although I get the window with the choices for the network connection the 'OK' button to proceed has no effect whatever is selected in the window - only the 'Abort' key works. Therefore the client fails to start properly! I did ensure a network connection either wired or wireless before testing. A reboot of the computer has no effect.

This pop up is particularly user unfriendly compared with the earlier versions....... why is it required as many of the choices it presents, although sitting in the Windows config are irrelevant and will confuse many users?

I have now checked 1.6.10 on another PC with Windows 7 and that failed also.
Going back to RRCMicro 1.6.6 works OK.

IMHO release 1.6.10 sucks quite a lot...

That is interesting. I am using 1.6.10 on a Windows 7-64 bit notebook with wifi connection without any issues.

all of my PCs are running 32bit OS.
I also don't like the up front network selection as the earlier 1.6.6 worked seamlessly, with no client switching ever required, whether you were running with a WiFi or wired connection.
A BIG step backwards, probably very time consuming for less IT literate users!

It seems that many of you have got into troubles with 1.6.10.
We are of course sorry for that and will take a deep look into what has gone wrong.
Thanks for you patience.
