    Default Another wifi problem

    I am a new nook user and having a darn bad time getting the thing to work on my wifi network. The only thing that seems to work repeatably is that the nook checks in with the router OK. I can see it's mac address on my router and am able to ping it. The web browser usually (but not always) seems to work. One item that I have not yet gotten to work is to download a book. Shopping seems to work, but downloads are a no go.

    I do run WEP on my wireless, and I see prople reccomending against this, but I have even tried turning encryption off with the same results. Ran off to B&N and books download fine....Any suggestions?

    There must be something in the security settings that is not allowing the downloads. You might have to assign a port and allow the nook to access? I'm not too savvy on this but try doing a search on the site because this issue comes up all the time recently and also a google search may hit something on the B&N boards. Good luck!
