I had the same issue, FWIW and actually, after I pushed the cable into the connector, the Rx was better than when I first received the unit!

Same problem here. Started box up, nothing.

Checked the SMA connector, pulled right back, so with a quick push it was back in place.

Now to find a more permeanent solution, as I thought I was being extremely careful with the AE as have had problems with these connectors before

Update on my situation. I went to pull out the USB connector the other day and accidentally pulled on the antenna lead and ripped the wire right out of the SMA connector!   It didn't take a whole lot of force to do this, either.
I was able to sort of put it back together, but it looks like I'll be buying a new connetor, hopefully one that's a little more solid!!!!
