Check windows Firewall is not stopping you
Windows Firewall definitely turned off, also paused protection on Kaspersky, still cannot connect. You know when it fires up because the Dongle parameters all come up on the DVTool page.
Do yo have to input anything into Dongle Software like a USB Adapter for Wireless setup?
No, the box containing the electronics is simply plugged into a convenient USB socket. A Logitec, or similar, USB headset occupies another USB socket and self installs. You have to have Java installed and unzip a small initiating programme as per the DVDongle website. You then double click on the "Jar" icon and the Dongle's serial number, firmware issue etc appear in the heading. You can then select a variety of repeaters all over the world by internet to the selected site and couple up with radio links even from Australia, presumably via port 20002. In my case it works on the laptop which requires more RAM and perhaps more CPU power in order to decode the data coming in. Sadly on the Mesh desktop, it is now refusing to open port 20002, or something is stopping it. I am sure that it worked originally for a couple of nights, but I didn't have a headset at that time so could not transmit. These changes all seemed to come about when Norton was thrown out and Kaspersky was installed. However, switching the whole firewall off makes absolutely no difference! I haven't used the Windows firewall for ages, but have doubled checked, and that is definitely still "Off". I've just tried a programme called TCPview which will access any named port from the test end. I tried 20002 and it opened in 5.09 seconds! I'm completely baffled.
