    When I connect my PB to my Laptop at work (which is on a domain network), it connects very quickly, and auto maps the PB to the Z: drive (using the USB cable). No issues with that, I can browse the folders, install and uninstall sideloaded apps, etc.

    However, when I try to connect the same way with teh same laptop at home (and just a regular internet connection) which is NOT on the domain network, it either doesn't connect at all, or if it does, it takes forever to actually make a connection, and the drive never auto maps, I have to use \\169.254.x.x to get to the device, and DDPB appears to connect after a *loooong* period of time, but installing and uninstalling apps fails most of the time, sometimes it works if I try 3 or 4 times but not always.

    Can anyone tell me why it won't connect out of the office properly and how this annoying bug can be fixed?

    Many thanks

    I just use file:\\insert ip addy here, and go. Then I save the connection as HomePB and the one at work is ........yup, WorkPB
    My work (also a network) and home take the same time to connect.

    Try 'file:\\' before the ip and see if that makes a diff.
