Summary: Unfortunately the SONY locationfree Base Station will only work if there is no other wifi network nearby. I live in a townhouse and many of my neighbors have local wireless networks. Although my wireless network has 5 bars and the highest number of bars a nearby neighbor's network has is three, I cannot get the base station to connect. This was confirmed by a SONY Locationfree techie this morning. He admitted that the device is basically useless where I live.
Summary: I found this product very difficult to set up and I am not a novice on the computer. The product comes with a so called manual but you have to go on online or stay on hold to wait to speak to a represenative, took me 3o mins. waiting before speaking to a rep. I am having to contact support again since I have more than one computer and it does not allow you register the base station , if the key is registered already to one computer.
Summary: I don't know why I am different than anyone else, but I have made 3 calls to SONY support in the last 2 weeks(5 total since I bought the system) and am still unable to use the system remotely. So, I have basically wasted my money, since I have no need to use it while I am at home. I did not get the system working originally using the wizard. I have NEVER found what I needed in online support after spending hours trying.
