If something has been corrupted which isn't normally replaced during a normal installation, this might resolve it.
The hard reset was the solution after the issue due to windows7 update of yesterday.
The sdr was wrong and did not worked on all my computers.
I also removed all files about smartsdr in c: and reinstalled smartsdr

This is a screen shot when I disconnect the network cable, power on the radio, then connect the network. i.e. Radio came up without a network DNS and assigned the base address which is not on the same subnet as my PC.
If the radio is selected SmartSDR will hang (IP Address is 169.254.6.81 which is not on my network as 192.168.0.xxx, as compared to the following when the radio is started with the network available (See IP Address:) as now 192.168.0.102
Selecting Available will bring up SmartSDR correctly.
The 192.168.x.x is the std non-routable address range managed by a dhcp router. 192.254.x.y is a non-bridged address. So it could be you are directly connecting the pc to the radio (bad) AND have a wifi (via router) connection to it. The two would show up intermittantly as the list box contents is based on serial so if SSDR saw two versions of that serial number it would list the one, as the key to the entry is serial which would be identical. Does that make sense. So I may have given you enough information to know exactly what the issue is or merely explained why I ask those questions....again:
1) how is the pc/laptop connected to the network/radio as the two may well be different.
2) do you have both wifi and cat-5e (ok, or 6) connected on the pc/laptop.
Howard: Let's start your problem description from the beginning, please (lots of people have jumped-in here, so I'm confused). Would you be so kind as to describe your network configuration (what connects to what, what's remote and what's local, and when it's remote how it's connected) and what your problem is specifically.
I'm sorry to try your patience this way, but it'll give me the best chance of helping you... if I can! Networking can be very tricky, even on non-Windows boxes.
