Question about Computers & Internet
Sounds like your company has set up a router control access rule for the IP address of the Sirius Radio Server connection. Unfortunately, there is no way around this blocking. Your company has done this to control the network traffic and to block unnecessary intranet/Internet incoming and outgoing traffic. You do not realize how much bandwidth listening to streaming music or watching streaming video consumes from usable network bandwidth. If your company pays a flat fee for Internet access each month with no traffic limit, they are just being protective of the network and potential bottlenecking of datagram packets. If your company has a limit of say 4TB of transmission packets per month and anything over this amount begins costing them oodles of money, the IT department is just trying to keep costs down. If the laptop you are using belongs to your company and is NOT your personal laptop, then more than likely the IT department HAS installed new firewall rules that are in place to protect the integrity and security of the system data. I know that you want to listen to your own music selections while at work, but network and data security trumps your ability to listen to what you want to. My suggestion, bring in some **** CD's with your favorite music and use your own CD player at your desk, then no one can restrict your music listening. If the laptop is owned by YOU, and you are using it for business use with consent of the organization, you are STILL restricted to NAC settings governed by your corporate IT/Security group. I know this is not what you really wanted to hear, but it is what it is. Cheers, Keith

I had the same issue. This is what Sirius calls a "Frozen Unit". There is no bypass, unfortunately, and it must be returned.
I had mine for 3 days and it froze on the Sirius Logo screen when booting up. If you bought the unit from Sirius, you must contact their E-Commerce department. If bought from a retailer, take it back to the store.
