I have. I can't even get it to get this far using the Dell software. It won't accept the WPA2 key. It says it wants a key that is "between 8 and 63 characters long," and the key everything else uses is 64 characters long (generated by a key generator). I even tried shortening the key by 1 character (in both the router and the Dell software), and it still didn't work. Switched to Windows Zero software, plugged in the key, and it connects to the router, but has "limited or no connectivity."

Can't be the rest; Let others waste my time?
