    I've recently moved, and in the process, my roommate and I have decided that
    I would take the wired connection to the internet, while he would take the
    wireless (via the MN-500 base station and a USB adaptor). In the process
    though, I've gotten into some issues I simply cannot find a solution for.

    1. When installing the base station using the install disc, I get an error
    along the lines of "uPnP is not installed, setup cannot continue". This
    persists after activating uPnP, resetting the factory settings and restoring
    my computer.

    2. In my attempt to get around this by manually installing the base station
    and adaptor, I cannot access my Base Station settings both through the UI and
    through the IP of the base station. I have tried every possible solution on
    the Help section of this site, and resetting the factory settings.

    Solutions would be wildly appreciated.

    it is probably time to replace the MN500. It does not offer the type
    of encryption you need to protect your computers and was
    discontinued long ago so there are no updates. if the long factory
    reset (holding an unbent paper clip) in the reset hold more than 10
    seconds) doesn't allow you to log in manually, then it is probably
    broken.
