Do you know where we can find the 3 key WiFi specs for the iPad?

  1. Hi Jeff,

    As per your suggestion, I plugged the FCC ID into:
    http://transition.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid/

    As Grantee Code (First three or five characters of FCCID):
    BCG
    And as Product Code (Remaining characters of FCCID):
    A1475

    With the result being the cryptic error:
    Date and time of error: Sun Mar 02 23:00:54 EST 2014
    Requester's address: 192.168.199.13

    The error occurred on line 26.

  2. That makes it my fault.
    Yep, that's exactly what I got on 2 machines and one tablet. I
    mentioned the problem in one of my rants yesterday. It seems that
    almost every weekend, the FCC ID lookup site goes down with some kind
    of database error. Oddly, it's not always the same error. It only
    seems to happen on weekends, when there is probably nobody looking at
    error messages and log files. It will be back sometime on Monday.

  3. Ooops. I'm sorry if it came off that way.
    I know you had already said it often doesn't work.
    I'll wait for them to fix it and try again tomorrow.

    It's NOT your fault!
    You gave good advice!

  4. It must be someone's fault. The first step to solving a problem is to
    blame someone. In other words, it's not going to get fixed without
    first assigning the blame. It's generally considered a bad idea
    blaming anyone involved in fixing the problem and blaming yourself is
    equally counterproductive. It's considered traditional to blame the
    person who notices the problem, but that won't work here. Therefore,
    I suggest you find suitable culprit, scapegoat, sacrificial victim,
    innocent bistander, or consultant to blame.

    In the past, when I complained about the non-availability of the site
    on weekends, I received the usual "site is down for upgrades" excuse.
    I just noticed that it's now fairly close to the official policy of
    crashing the site Saturday at 10PM thru Sunday at 6AM EST.

    the FCC ID web pile is still down. Hmmm.... 3 hrs late so far.
    Perhaps nobody complained and the (outsourced) admins didn't notice?
    <http://transition.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid/>
    Enter BCG A1475, search, and click on the "Please report this error to
    FCC OET Systems Support" link to send eashelp a reminder. It
    automagically includes the error message making it quite easy to
    complain.

    "Pool OETDataSource is Suspended, cannot allocate..."
    I was wondering the meaning of that SQL error message. I think I
    found the "suspended pool".

    Hmmm...

  5. Well, that didn't work. I just got this back from the site:

    <mailto:> is no longer an active or
    monitored mailbox.

    For help resolving issues associated with using the Equipment
    Authorization System (EAS), please go to http://www.fcc.gov/labhelp
    and select submit an Inquiry. In the First Category Field, Select
    "Administrative Requirements", and include in the subject field
    "EAS Help". Please clearly describe your issue in the "enter
    inquiry field". After you select submit, you will be permitted
    to add attachments. For a faster response please provide PDF
    or JPEG of screen images of the error message and the web page
    preceding the error message showing all content including the URLs.

    Like I said, complaining takes too much effort to be worthwhile.
    FCC ID lookup is still dead. Yawn...

    Here is my spin on this. I expect all databases to be full of bugs, but I at
    least expect access to the buggy databases.

    What I like about the product database is how the FCC often forgets not to
    upload confidential documents.
