Dear Adam,
Thanks for your valuable guidline in the first post. I read your post carefully. In fact you have presented all steps in details except ONE! connecting to network!

I have a simple (as your point of view but not mine!!!) question:

I know that iLiad needs to be connected via a Wired hub or a wireless network with a router. now concern on wired network on our company. we use windows 2003 server and dns system. every computer needs an account to join to network and use the shared internet. we have some reserved IP's which doesn't need any user and password to connecto to internet. the only requirement is that you have to logon to dns with your account.

I have cleared all settings of computer name, user, password, etc. and actually I have nevere sync. my iLiad with computer. I only want to connect to the internet and upgrade my iLiad's firmware. so I have a chance to work with USB sticks and...

There are many switches in out LAN. I connected the iLiad to the 3com switch (directly) with a Ethernet cable. then I defined 4 setting in my iLiad network section:

1. Wired auto (everything left auto config.)
2. Wired auto with proxy (everything except proxy server are left auto config. the proxy is set up by info. I received from out admin)

3. Wired Static (IP's are set statically with info I received from admin. he stated that given IP needs no user and password to connect to internet. note that I can use the IP with my pc to connect to internet. the only requirement is that i need my user and account on the dns to connect to the network and after tat I have connection to the intenet automatically.

4. Wired Static with Proxy (All IP's info and dns gateway, etc. are set up using admin's info.)

When I press "test", It informs me "unsuccessful". I pressed the connection to iDS key many times , iLiad checks all 4 predefined network configs and fails to connect!!!

What is wrong with my approach?
I even used the computer name and user and password of the admin of network in the iLiad computer name settings, before. but I got the same results for all pre-mentioned configs.

What must I do?

Hi

I juste installed the developer package and I've a problem very similar to this old one :
When I try to run the run.sh script in the fbreader folder, I get the led flashing, the progress bar and the screen refresh but that' all, it's very quick and nothing is installed...
The run script in the mrxvt worked, I got a terminal.

And, I don't know if it's related, but it seems that manifest files with "run.sh" as start page are totally ignored by my device...

Noob guide

Thanks a lot for the guide Adam without it i could loose at least 3-5 days trying to find how i can make it work, great job ! But a noob is a noob and that cannot change in a day or with any guide. As you say i first install developer package then mrxvt on cf that it works right away and then fbreader and delete the instalation file but in any case i tap on the program it looks like its loading for a second or two and then it does nothing. I uninstall and install several times but it seems i cannot make it load. What am i doing wrong ? I also have a question about what is the extension of mobipocket ebooks and if there is another software like mobipocket creator that recognise scaned pdf books and can change their format.

Take a look at this guide. http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=17343

You might need to use the format option if your registry is corrupt.

OK it is working again. But if I am remember the version I had software version 1.19 or 2.12 now it seems to havd 2.20 (in upperleft corner it says ero141/002 v2.20
Reference materials is empty
I see that iliad settings for example just have 6 pages instead of 10
Also CF card is not show how mutch space it is on it
And Mobireader or BF reader are not working, so I can only read pdf

it is Ok now.

I did a complete format. Mobireader is now working.

I think I leave m this way. Pitty that I did not get the BFreader to work. But this is better than an iliad dat is rebooting or only read pdf.
Maybe in future an update of mobi.....

Thanks for all of your tips and help
