    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

Followed upmans wifi dongle firmware update to the letter....but when I get to the step of plugging the dongle in my USB port nothing happens. No progress bar no dialog box nothing to indicate anything is happening. I went ahead and set up my wifi on the 536 with no problem but wondering why nothing happens when the dongle is connected to my PC? I know it's probably some PC problem/conflict just wondering if anyone has any ideas.

All else is well with my 536, it looks to be a great unit.

TIA,

Scotty

Mine did not show anything either when I plug it in. But if you go on in the instructions and run the second program, choose the COM port and then install, it will work. I had to try three different COM ports until I found the right one but not a big deal.

Did you try different USB bridges on your computer? Sometimes different ports are tied to a separate USB bridge in the chipset. Sometimes USB on one bridge works better than another.

Take a look at Device Manager for yellow tags on USB ports/devices
