6700  I followed the instructions in the quick start guide.  Cat cable from the Maestro to my switch, power cable to the Maestro 6700 powered up software off.  Held Maestro power button down for 5 sec and get what looks like windows circle of dots spinning. Get a quick display of the time and a box that says Maestro, then blank then a grey box "Waiting on Hardware Initialization (Y,K,YTS)  There it stays.  Tried a direct Ethernet connection to the radio and the same.  Also tried no Ethernet connection.  At on point I got an OS screen.  I will post pics.  HELP Jeff N3VE NOT HAPPY!!! Have rebooted the radio many times also.
