CLICK on " LOST PASSWORD" and then enter your email address..............
The system will reply to your email box with a new Password / pin # ( these are the same for both the Forum & RADIO )
When entering them into the spaces provided - make sure the space is completely empty and you type first character at the very beginning of the box - no space in front of you callsign or pin # / Paswword............. this is important !!
The sound driver of Vista is usually not activated until you plugin a microphone in the mic-jack.
Try that first.
Secondly, the sound board itself, what brand is it? Is it embedded on the main CPU board?
Some old sound boards were unable to utilize 8 kHz sampling rate, but that is far fetched as most cards supports 8kc nowadays.

Have not done any upgrades to the operating system but i guess I might have turned the firewall of for some reason or other because it was turned off when i just checked it. Not that hot on the tech stuff with the computer just know enough to get myself into trouble with it. Not sure where to go to find this setting for TCP port 8010....did some looking around but found nothing that said port 8010..
Just got off the phone with my ISP (Comcast) and told them the problem and they said that everything was good with me connection and they had me ping Hamsphere.com and also ping the IP 18.104.22.168.....each one came up with the same results "request times out" I have taken my router off line and have the computer plugged directly into the cable modem so the router could not be an issue.
Last night I downloaded the program again but on to a different computer and still had no luck.
Don't know much about settings on the firewall so would need some help there. I have also taken the firewall down and tried to log in on the progrem.
not sure on what to do next....My ISP also said that it was either something with the program or on your end of the world LOL.
I don't seem to have any problem getting on any other websites...they did do a reset on the modem so everything there checked out just fine.
Not being able to ping our server is "bad". Someone on the way to Sweden seems to block either ICMP packets or the TCP port 8010. We suggest you download the pingplotter program from the Download directory
The trace 22.214.171.124 and look for PL = Packet Loss or other blocks in the path. You might see where or when the traffic is blocked or stopped.
I downloaded the pin ploter freeware prg. and also tried the standerd edition of ping ploter. I put in your IP address 126.96.36.199 hit trace and I get "destination address unreachable" 100% packet loss. Also it had "mail.lindman.se (188.8.131.52) hop unkown". This was with the standard edition of Ping Ploter. The freeware edition just came up with the address unreachable.
So now what is my next step??? How do I look for this TCP port 8010? and ICMP...not sure what either are but by the time I get through all this I should know.
Just an update. After loading the program on three different computer, dropping my firewall and virus protection, taking my router off line and plugging each computer directly into the cable modem (one at a time) I still had no luck with log in on Hamsphere. I loaded the Hamsphere program on a computer at work and it logged me in right away. hmmmm this got me to beleiving that it had to have something to do with my cable modem. The cable modem also runs my telephone service which has been working just fine.
Well this afternoon I decided to take the cable modem back to my ISP (Comcast) and exchange it for a new one thinking it would solve my problem. Well got the new modem hooked up, called my ISP to get it activated and would you beleive they had trouble getting the modem to work for me. Now I have internet but no phone service, I really don't beleive that this other modem that they gave me was a new one, now I have someone elses problem. :( Oh yes the other modem still would not log into Hamsphere. They are sending a cable guy out early tomorrow morning to check thing out. I sure the heck hope that I get a new modem this time around.
Well keep you informed of what happens after the cable guy gets things back to order again.
Well got the cable modem reset and got my phone lines back up and running (the wife was happy about that)...not sure if that was really the problem now or not....I got the program to work on two of the three computers (only need it on one)so i am a happy camper.
The program wouldn't work right away so I did a good clean up on my systems, did a disk clean up and defrag all in safe mode, after that I got a bright idea (X( of doing a system restore on the systems. Took it back to the 1st of Sept on one computer and around the 1st of Oct on the other one. That seemed to do the job on two of the computers, so for future reference if you have this kind of problem give system restore a try it might work for you also.
Want to thank Kelly 5B4AIT and vic VE3JAR for all their help with this problem. Sorry Vic I never did see you on Skype for a chat.
Thanks for sharing this info. Although it seems rather drastic to do the cleaning measure including the system restore to get HamSphere working. I would guess your computer was all messed up by other stuff than HamSphere and hence you had to take these measures.
Hello everyone in this forum that is having problems logging in.
I annoyed Kelly many times about this same problem but just got it straightened out so figured I'd pass on what I did to get it working.
First I removed BOTH Hamsphere AND all old versions of Java from my computer.
I then re installed the latest version of Java which is SE 6 Update 29.
When you do this you will see a Java "Test" button that will test to see if it has been installed correctly on your machine. Do this test BEFORE trying to download Hamsphere again!
Now go download the correct version of Hamsphere and remember if you have a 64 bit system, don't download the 32 bit version.
