From what I have read here the authority webpage had been down for over a month. I wonder if anyone can advise me how to bypass this stage, as without it the unit is merely a rather expensive paperweight, and I have no need for applying weight to my papers, the need for which this technology is supposed to supersede.
Another post mentioned sending the "PMs" to other users with the same problem, so I Googled PMs... but the results were more concerned with female plumbing.
Thankyou, sorry, thanks.
To "PM" means to send a private message to a forum member.
Click on the 250 Coupe in the upper left of this message, select "Send private message to 250 Coupe"
Send me your email address and I'll send you a link to a copy of the install CD. I don't know if that will help with your problem but I think you can select "Install from CD" VS "Install via internet" at some point and that should work.
