  1. Is there such a scanner? I have wireless internet which uses access points. I need to do a better job of pinpointing the best lockon target. But moving the satelite receiver on top of the house is cumbersome. Is there a handheld device that I can use to test the signal strength? Then I can say yeah, move the receiver here, and raise it so high, then finetune using the satellite receiver's Canopy aiming here.
  2. If you borrow a Blackberry for a half an hour, it is easier to unsecure your network, then to deny the Blackberry access to a secured network after you're done.
  3. EBrown: Already tried restricting the IP address/subnet to that. Doesn't work. CA3LE: Saw that information on other sites too, doesn't work as you said with Windows 7. Talked to my provider, he said earlier versions of Windows 7 have something in the coding that prevent access. They don't have a solution. He didn't tell me which later versions work. Although, he mentioned if a person has Windows 7 Professional, then can add another operating system like Vista or XP to access programs that don't work with Windows 7. My easiest solution was to borrow my daughter's Blackberry with internet access. Just punch in 169.254.1.1, wham, right there, everything! Can even set AutoUpdate to 1 sec. Just love it when a tool works well in an unexpected area! Probably have to make your network unsecured temporarily though for the Blackberry to access the location.
  4. First off, I know my 169.254.1.1 is the location of my Canopy. Using Windows XP, I can see Canopy. But when I want to view Canopy on my laptop which has Windows 7, I can't view it. Laptop needed on top of the roof for re-positioning of satellite. Desktops with Windows XP too cumbersome to relocate on top of 25 foot roof. When I type in Canopy's url as above, Firefox says "The connection was reset...The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading...." I have tried other browsers on the Windows 7 laptop like Internet Explorer, and Opera, same problem. How can I access Canopy through Windows 7? Remember I already know the correct location of 169.254.1.1.
