I have the same issue. The problem with mine is that it’s brand new, never used, and never updated. Now the servers are down and it doesn’t think it has an internet connection. So we’re stuck in an unupgradible boot loop where we need internet to upgrade and we need to upgrade to get an internet connection. Truth be told, the device probably pings the update server to confirm it has an internet connection, but the server’s down. So it will never think it’s online anymore.
BTW I’m a career IT guy. I KNOW a few tricks to get a device up and online. I tried wired and wireless (of course). I connected to the lan port on my router. I bypassed my router and plugged directly into my cable modem. Many power cycles later, still no connection. I tried dhcp (dynamic IP) and static IP addressing. I set a dhcp reservation on my router for the wired MAC and wireless MAC address. Multiple locations attempted and brand new Ethernet cables used. No luck. It wasn’t from a lack of trying though.
So now for the good news. I finally found a way to update via usb flash drive. The hard part was tracking down the update file. So many file repositories repeatedly linked to on many old forum posts are dead/deleted. Anyway, I found the most recommended manual upgrade file version and the actual file on a google+ guy’s lil g+ blog site. As soon as I get home, I’ll give it a shot, and I’ll let you know the results. If you’re still interested in getting your Revue up and running, I’ll be happy to help out provided I’m successful in updating.
