Flucard questions.

I bought a Flucard soon after they were available in England but I have only used it about three times. Yesterday I encountered problems with it when I tried to use it with a new Android tablet I have just bought. The Wi-Fi on the tablet found a signal from the camera with a reasonable signal strength but when I tried to connect to the FluCard it tried but after a short time it came back with a message " Authentification problem". I tried again and this time it said "No signal nearby". Could the FuCard have developed a fault.?. Tried again using my laptop computer with which I have had previously had a good connection but again got the same messages. One question about the K3 switch on - the back LCD panel displays a Wi-Fi icon which flashes on and off for a short time then ceases to flash and remains greyed out. Is this correct or should the icon stay bright if it is getting a good connection to the FluCard. ?

I only have one suggestion based upon my own experiences so far: Was your K-3 battery somewhat discharged?
