        I've read several messages where the belief is that obtaining the IP address is the problem. If you can figure out how to get your router to always give your NST the same IP (static IP), you might not have any more problems.  Unfortunately it's not easy to figure out on every router.

         

        If you happen to be using a FIOS router from ActionTec (which is giving a lot of people trouble), LastSilmaril posted a good step by step procedure for assigning a static IP here.

          Yes, the technique actually works. Assigned the Static IP, restart the router and the Nook.

            I still don't understand why my N2E connects just fine with my Actiontec using a dynamic IP.  I guess I'm just one of the lucky ones...

              Same here, Verizon Actiontec router and no issues with the update.  The router could be one issue but there has to be something else involved.  I hope they get it figured out, these kinds of issues are very frustrating.

                Different hardware version?

                Different firmware version?

                 

                Do we know that every N2E has the same modem?

                  I'm also one of the lucky ones who has had no problems with this router, but my Nook has had the same IP address since it first accessed my network.  I wonder if the people who have had trouble have addresses that change frequently due to IP addresses being allocated automatically.  What's more, I wonder if those of us who are lucky would be having the same problems if our Nooks did have to change addresses for some reason.

                    I think scotta's on to something here, as when my Nook's WiFi stopped working again - it had begun to work fine after rooting - I noticed that another client (a PC) had what the nook's IP was earlier.

                      I always thought the text could be darker, it use to look grey to me. Now it's much easier to read. Also, I am getting a new message to sync page numbers with other devices.

                        I got that message recently as well.  The problem is that my Droid X saw different page numbers than my N2E and would have sync'd to the wrong place in a magazine I was reading.

                          For those having trouble connecting to wifi, have you tried having the Nook "forget" your network and then try reconnecting?  That solved my connection problem after the update.  I had to forget the network both at home and at work.  You do this from within the wireless settings of the Nook.

                            I don't really understand why Nook's Product Managers and some contributeres here don't consider reading web site articles (e.g. NY Times mobile site) as "reading."  Unfortunately, it looks like the Nook Touch has been designated for reading books only and customers who want more should get a....

                            I have a PC, blackberry, old Nook and new Nook. I can tell you that reading long NY Times Magazine or New Yorker articles works best by far on my old Nook.

                              How about the Sony PRS-T1? I don't want to be tied to Kindle format only. Either that or root the Nook seem to be the choices to me.

                                I didn't read this on B&N's site, I heard it on a review of the N2E on YouTube, but one explanation might be that the word "Simple" in the devices name is there because it is designed to do one thing especially well, instead of being a jack of all trades.

                                  I am still loving the update, BUT I have one little problem. I noticed it this morning. When I'm in the shop and I click the magnifying glass to view the full size cover in 'overview', the cover is completely out of focus.

                                  Not a huge deal, since book covers are not as important to luring me in as they are in a book store... still, I'd like it to work, because it worked before, and I've only had the Nook for a week.

                                    I don't understand why I can't read my toothpaste tube on my N2E.  It has words on it.  For that matter, I need to read my lightbulbs to find out their wattage.  Why won't my Nook make the bulbs light up?  Oh yeah, I also have some frozen dinners with ingredients and instructions on the box.  If I could read them on my N2E maybe I could microwave them on my N2E as well.  They don't work with my N2E either!  I can't understand why anything with a word in it can't be read on my N2E.  After all, it's called a reader, right?  What's wrong with these B&N Product Managers anyway?  What a half-baked product!  I may just purchase a Kindle.  It's perfect.
