Which version of DSLstats is this?
Notwithstanding the answer to that question, it's not a necessary part of the configuration to make a selection from that dropdown - it's only used as a shortcut to filling in the login details, which you can do manually anyway.

Is this a new issue which you haven't seen before, in which case, what has changed?

[Later] It's occurred to me that a likely reason for that dropdown failing to work would be the absence of the file routers.dat from the main DSLstats directory. It's part of the downloaded archive, so if it's got lost somehow you should be able to retrieve it by downloading DSLstats again.

Sorry about the delay.
This is on a 'spare' laptop (v5.8.2  64Bit Linux ) and when I had the BTOR chap around the other week he took one look at my unusual setup and he wanted me to put my isp modem back instead of my UN-locked HG612, I was going to set modem and spare laptop up together.(But not needed).
Like you say I set it up without the drop down list .

Yesterday I marked the DSLstats download directory 'old' and installed and fresh install.
put a new short cut on the desktop.
I get the same affect using the short cut (it has the same permissions !), but if I go to the 'dslstats' in the download directory and click on that it works ok.
Must be something to do with the desktop shortcut .
DSLstats works well with my main laptop.

When you run DSLstats from a link like this in Linux, you may need to make a little script which changes the working directory to the DSLstats directory before running the program. Something like this:

Code: [Select]
#!/bin/sh
cd <the directory where the DSLstats files are stored>
./dslstats

Name this script "run-dslstats" or something like that, make it executable, and save it anywhere convenient. Then point your desktop link at this script.
