Hi guys,

I'm thinkin about buying the Weather Forecaster for my VS Ultra. I just wanted to get some feedback from those who have been using it:

-Is it currently up or down ?
-Does it support Bev & DN ?
-How reliable is it ? How often does it go down and for how long ?

Everything is unpredictable but I'm just trying to determine whether or not it's worth it. My VS is been sitting there for almost 2 yrs now.

WF is working. People are having problems but they do get it going. DSL connection is better than Cable.
Here is a C/P verbatim.
"unplug WF ....factory default thru menu.... load factory file 146 to yourec..REattach WF...when u set static settings change it to dhcp b4 u exit ....after entering ur info...do steps one and two ....then check the weather if the WF gets u the weather in the menu with,318...its working for settup with no router...use a straight serial pc to WF ....set isp connection to share- set auto roll on ...change static to dhcp...load 614 s/w upgrade 614 then load 708 and s/w upgrade thru serial settings in menu leave on a ch.3-5 mins u should have poss. results "
