Exclamation computer can't find AP

i originally had my V2 AP installed on my old XP desktop and it connected to the AP manger fine and all. but today i was going to install the accesstuner RACE so i needed to install the manager program on my laptop so i don't have to run a huge cable to the desktop. but my new computer, running vista, never acknowledged that i connected the accesport. however i did install the manager, race, and firmware all before i connected the AP. since then i have deleted everything and reinstalled and even tried to hook the AP up with no AP software on the computer.

Do i somehow have to wipe the manager and stuff off the old desktop in order for it to run on both computers? how do i get my laptop to discover and connect to the AP?

Maybe it doesn't like Vista, hardly anything else does. Call COBB and ask them about it. See if the AP isn't able to connect to Vista or something. A lot of stuff doesn't work with Vista unfortunately.

Well, glad you found the problem... Maybe COBB will come out with a Vista friendly software patch sometime soon.
