I purchased the battery at the link listed here
The replacement is not easy, but I was successful
tools reqd':
a very small phillips head screw driver (for cover)
a very small allen key (for hard drive removal)
side cutters
solder iron (very small tip)
small shrink tube (or black elec. tape)

remove the back cover (4 small screws top and bottom of the gray back and 4 small screws at the silver sides of the unit) also be careful here as the screen is now loose and can fall away if not supported

remove hard drive (4 small allen screws) make sure you GENTLY wiggle the hard drive out of plug
the battery is now exposed

this was the nasty part, the battery can be removed out the back but you have to pry it out, I ended up prying and bending the battery to remove it (it was do or die at this point). once you have it loose snip the black and red wires leaving about 3 inches.

the new battery dropped into place very easily.

Strip about 1/4 inch off the blacks twine them together and carefully solder (if you twine them end to end make sure you slip a 1" piece of shrink tube over one before you solder, I twined them side by side so I could slip on the tube after) if you use elec. tape instead of tubing MAKE SURE you leave no wire exposed or you unit will likely be forfeight. Repeat process for the red wire making sure the battery lead does not contact anything but the other red lead.

I laid the 2 solder connections along the top edge of the unit so as not to interfere with the hard drive laying flat

reverse the order to reassemble and that should be that!

My new battery was flat on delivery but has now charged up fully and seems to hold a good charge.

Did you setup your WiFi router correct. Did you make a user name with password on your Router? did you setup a WiFi login for that account on your smart phone?
Just a few questions, you should work out.
