Yeah, thanks. The dumb part is I looked at it yesterday. I convinced myself it was all lined up. Doh.

Thanks for fessing up. Hopefully, I can remember this when I make that mistake. (N.B.: I said "when" not "if"
Sigh )

If that's the problem, return the router to LV.  They'll replace it with one that is built correctly.
