Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Connected to internet TO connected testing

This appears to be something cycling between those two options on the WiFi status. I have already Forgotten and reentered my WAp2 key (all 64 characters or something) 3 times. I have turned WiFi off and back on, and I have powered down and back up without success.

 

HELP!

Please tell us about your router - brand, connection type, if you run it in mixed mode, 2.4 or 5ghz, if you use MAC filtering, if you broadcast your SSD, etc.

Re: Connected to internet TO connected testing

Linksys Cisco Router WNDR 3700. Verizon FIOS DSL, 2.4 gHz, MAC filtering (but I registered it at the store and broubht the MAC address home to be entered), the SSID is not broadcast.

 

FIOS is running 25/20 mbps in this area.NOOK shows 65 mbps connection with router, desktop shows 130 mbps (and that probably means nothing, I know).

 

What is mixed mode?

What do you mean by connection type?

Re: Connected to internet TO connected testing

As it turned out, the problem was not related to my Nook at all. Even the B & N techies could not download the book in question. So I tried another book, and SUCCESS.

 

They are contacting the maintenance team for that server and will try to get that book "fixed."
