Re: valet Plus with mac OS 10.7 (Lion)

The Cisco Connect FAQ has information and pointers about Cisco Connect and Lion compatability.

 

Specifically, it points to KB Article 23897 which has a compatability table. 

 

If your platform is not yet Lion compatible, you can still configure it with the web based interface at http://192.168.1.1.

Re: valet Plus with mac OS 10.7 (Lion)

I used all available options I could find in FAQ, downloads, etc.  Talked to a polite Cisco Chat representative.  Cisco recommends a $30-40 service fee to get assistance to manually setup the Valet since it is outside the warrantee window.  Seems Valet Plus (M20) remains unsupported with a solution to be compatible with OS 10.7 (lion). 

 

Very, very disappointing since the Valet was marketed as the easy setup solution.  If you are on a Mac running the OS 10.7 (lion) operating system, it is no longer easy.   I recommend finding a different router; hopefully one that will fulfill the “easy setup” promise.

Re: valet Plus with mac OS 10.7 (Lion)

Yes, I'd like to bump this up - my M20 cannot be managed without going via a virtual PC, which is not exactly the easiest way of going about it. Surely it's not *that* hard to upgrade the software, as it has been done for other routers in the series? Disappointing: it wasn't the cheapest solution but I wrongly assumed that Cisco would be reliable and supportive. It puts me off buying Cisco again.

Ditto on rhe future purchases. I think an Airport is in my future.... Sorry Cisco. I guess those of us at the bottom of the food chain get no updates.

I JUST PURCHASED THIS THINKING IT WOULD BE A BREEZE. WOW I WAS WRONG. I DID MANAGE TO SET UP MANUALLY AND THANKS TO ME DOING ALOT OF RESEARCH I FOUND AN IPOD/IPHONE APP FROM CISCO THAT WORKS WITH THE M20 AND ALLOWS YOU TO MANAGE AND CHANGE PASSWORDS. CHECK IT OUT AS ITS FREE

Good find!

 

The app is called "Cisco Linksys Connect Express" and if you have iOS or Android devices you can get it free!

How do you point your browser?  I am using a macBook Pro and need to change my valet settings.

Open any browser, like Safari or Chrome. Type in 192.168.1.1 in the address bar and press enter. It will prompt you for a username and password. Type admin for the username and for the password field, it will be the password of your wireless connection. You should be in the page after that.
