Seems to be an issue with your IP address. 
 

Try a device that’s not attached to your home network. Ie a cell phone with the WiFi turned off.

If my whistle went down I’d be pretty stressed out. I don’t know how you dog electronics folks do it. I have a hard enough time updating the OS on my iPhone.😉

That's actually kinda funny.

 

Mine's gotten clogged with junk before!

 

Out of curiosity I plugged in the Instinct--no problem, updating now.  It recognized it and connected right up.

 

My biggest problem with Garmin is that you can't update TT15 collars on a Mac.  And I have a Mac.

Not so much the dog electronics I updated them all about a month ago but I do use the Instinct watch to monitor my sleep patterns, heart rate and number of steps for my asthma if I cant upload the info from my watch to my computer I am not getting a complete picture of what is going on for the Doc.

I just used Garmin Webupdater to update the Alpha.  I forget if I've used Express to update the Alpha before, but Web updater worked fine.

 

Let us know what Garmin says.

I just used Express last night to update my Garmin InReach mini and reactive it under the Freedom plan. No problems.

 

There was a notice that there was an issue with AT&T users and sending locations but I don't have AT&T so didn't read the complete outage notice. By chance you don't have AT&T as your internet service provider do you?

I have ATT and it seems to work OK.

No I have Comcast everything works fine except I am banned from the Garmin website completely.  I just got off the phone with Garmin support they have no clue what is happening and I am not the only one that has been banned it seems as they have a open case on it.  Support sent me a direct link to Express and it came back as banned which was a surprise to them.  Funny thing is that the Connect APP on my phone works and my Instinct updates current info but if I try to use the phone to open the Garmin website nothing same error message I get on the Computers

 

They have my info and will contact me when they have solution.
