Hi John

There is no code behind the WiFi button yet (if anyone wants to write it, I'll add it, but it's probably a good few days work). So even with Wifi working, it will do the same as you are seeing.

The Portsdown was designed to use a wired connection for updates - suggest that you do that.

Thanks Dave - I get it now (sorry, it's been a long week, and I'm a bit slow on the uptake ;) )
I had mistaken your previous comment about not having touchscreen support for /setting up/ the wifi as meaning that it wouldn't allow you to initially configure things, not that there was /no/ functionality behind it.
Note to self: try reading and thinking in future ;)

Ok, I'll get down into to the corner and seek out a wired port this weekend

Thanks for your assistance!

Success!
I managed an early finish from the office today, so I braved the black hole and found a free gigabit port...
Portsdown software not all up to date and all new menu features present :)

Many thanks to both Dave and Wilm for help and for bearing with me during peak stupid.

Now to get the lime mini connected and configured...
