I got mine yesterday and it was extremely hard to set up. After 2 hours and help from my brother (who has a computer degree), it started up. I love it!

Yay! So glad it is all set now. Mine weighed within a pound of our old one, so I will be happy with that. Enjoy!

Success! I called Time Warner about the router and the tech made an adjustment to it over the phone. She stayed on the line with me while I went through the steps. I had been doing everything correctly. My router was set for n not b/g. Also, I was correct--it weighs the same as the doctor's offices, which is 10 lbs heavier than my Wii. After vacation (2 more weigh ins) I will start using the weight on the Aria instead of Wii.


I WILL look to smaller goals to accomplish the final goal!

glad you were able to get yours set up. If you have issues down the line with it, please let us know

Everybody tells me that they would love to knit, but they don't have time. I look at people's lives and I can see opportunity and time for knitting all over the place. The time spent riding the bus each day? That's a pair of socks over a month. Waiting in line? Mittens. Watching TV? Buckets of wasted time that could be an exquisite lace shawl. ~Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much

Received the scale today - so far, so good. Setup was very easy, even though the scale is at the opposite end of the house from the router. Just took the laptop to the bathroom with me, downloaded the software, and was good to go! Hope you get the issues taken care of soon!

if you click on the amazon link i sent, there are more suggestions from customers and their experiences setting it up. you might find something helpful there that fb did not suggest

Thanks for posting what was on Amazon. Unfortunately I am not having the same experience.

Right after I posted the previous post I started trying to get the scale set up (about 2 hours ago). I have a laptop that I purchased November 2011 and it uses WiFi, not Ethernet cable. So that means I have spent about 4 hours trying to get this set up. I even put the router on the floor right in front of the scale! I also have the Fitbit account and it was a breeze setting up my Ultra.

I received an email from FB support and I answered all their questions and sent them screen shots and even a pic of the scale sitting on the floor in front of the router.


I WILL look to smaller goals to accomplish the final goal!

on amazon they had this posted about the wifi


I bought the Fitbit Aria scale since I had already been using a Fitbit Ultra and have been tracking steps, distance, calories burned, flights of stairs climbed, active score, and sleep stats with my Fitbit Ultra already. This Aria scale integrates in nicely on the Fitbit.com site, and the weight and Body Fat% stats show up in the dashboard right below the steps and other stats. You can then drill down further to get the individual measurements over time and see some charts over time too.

One thing to note: setup was very easy, but you do need to use a WIFI connection to do the setup (i.e. if you try to do the setup over a Ethernet wired computer that does not also support WIFI, the setup won't work). I brought a laptop that was running over WIFI into my bathroom to do the setup and that worked great. I already had an account on Fitbit.com so that made setup even easier. Setup only took a minute or two - you just need to know your password for your network since you will enter it during the setup procedure. My network uses mixed mode 802.11 b/g/n and WPA2 encryption, and the scale connected no problem.

I have. I spent about 2 hours trying to get it set up. After being on the phone with Time Warner (WiFi) to make sure it was working right I wrote FB support. They sent me a response asking me all kinds of questions that I am not sure I can answer. I am going to try again tonight. It will be another evening of little to no exercise!

It goes through the first 3 steps and then dies for the 4h one.

I thought it would be as easy to set up as the Fitbit was.


I WILL look to smaller goals to accomplish the final goal!
