    Wish I had found this a week ago — ordered a Wacom tablet and the wireless kit. The thing worked fine plugged in, but would not work with the wireless kit no matter what I tried. Even ordered another kit with the same problems, and another (same) tablet that also didn’t work. Then I started the service manually — and all is well (even if I have to do this every time it’s worth it).
