Silly question: How search the forum posts

How do I search the forums?

I just got my FLM2 today and I am having some issues getting it up and running. Before I break out all the noob questions I thought I would search the forums as I can't believe I would be the first person to have dramas setting these up.

Problems I am having:
1) My wifi LED is blinking sporadically (about once every 1 or 2 seconds). Definitely blinking faster than once every three seconds [good wifi], and slower than twice per second [no wifi connection]
2) How do I tell what reporting mode the FLM is in?
3) On my Flukso devices page I can see that my FLM has previously registered a heartbeat (half an hour ago), but the uptime is listed as "0d 0h".

haha - that's what I had resorted to.

I figured it is the poor mans's forum search (and also relies on google indexing the site on a very frequent basis), but it will have to do for now.

Hi jasonp,

1/ Connect to the ethernet port and load the local sensor page. Verify whether the ping test succeeded.
2/ If the wifi LED is blinking, you're definitely in wifi-mode. A permanently-on wifi LED means the wifi is off. (I know, this LED behavior will not win an interaction award)
3/ Heartbeat calls to the server are triggered at 1-hour intervals. The first heartbeat call is made right after boot, so the uptime will indeed be 0d 0h.
4/ Building a decent search functionality for the forum/site would mean setting up an Apache Solr instance (or something similar). For now, I prefer to let the fine dudes in Mountain View do all the indexing for us.

Thanks guys for the searching help and assistance with basic troubleshooting. I'll move my next lot of beginners install questions to another thread.
