Heads up - I can't find my radio

So, your radio was online yesterday but you can't see it today.  

The first thing to check is if your network adapter could changed from Private to Public which seems to be happening just a little more often this week.


Thanks to this, you can end up with your Firewall on on your your personal network and therefor you can't see your radio.

You might want to look here first.  I have had more than 1 person reach out to us with this problem.

    I can't resist:

    Do you remember where you put your radio yesterday or the last time you used it?

    Yup, Mike is right. I was one with the Firewall set to Public (I don't know how) but when I set it to Private, bingo! Radio works now.
    Thanks again to Mike

    Just a slight clarification.  The Network Adapter must be set to private or your firewall 100% off for all type of adapters. 

    If this says Public, that is the type of setting you would use when you are at Starbucks.

    FWIW, when Windows prompts you whether you want to enable sharing and making your Computer and files discoverable, this is what it ends up setting (i.e. if you answer yes, it puts you in Private network mode.  If you say no, it puts you in Public network mode -- I know.  Kind of backwards and confusing).
