Good luck finding one. So many people have blink in their sig (which google also indexes) that searching for a term like that is useless. I had a heck of a time finding the blink mod thread (because I couldn't remember if it was mod or hack) - and I KNEW there was one.

You could always try the Blink specific section...

Just discovered that all of my issues go away with hardwire LAN connection. Maintains connection and is super fast in this mode. Unfortunately, my cable solution is temporary until I can get electrician out to drop me a permanent port next to my Blink.

After reading through the Blink wireless thread, I decided to pick up one of these -http://www.netgear.com/landing/wnce2001.aspx. Allows configuring the Blink in LAN mode, which is clearly the design preference, while using encrypted wifi to your access point/router. Works like a charm :)

What type of power adapter is included? If it's 120-240v auto-ranging this would work well for me since I could just install it inside of the Blink. My only issue is that I don't have a regular power outlet anywhere close to my Blink...

Includes 100-240v adapter. Also supports USB as power source using included USB adapter cable. I have to say it's a night and day difference between the integrated wifi adapter and the WNCE2001. Reliable and fast, as it should be. Cheers

I took delivery of my Leaf in March and from day one it would never charge when using the Leaf's timer. Every morning there would be some error, or a charge indication of only a few minutes or no charge indication. Even after the latest Blink firmware was pushed, no dice. Manual charge would work OK.

However, it may be just a crazy coincidence, but last Wednesday the technician came out to my work with a laptop and updated my Leaf with the software fix for the A/C-no-restart problem and the timer charging has worked flawlessly ever since.

When they do the bulletin service, all timers are reset on the LEAF. If there were any errors with the programming it should have corrected itself...
