What's DOS?

I was so hoping these instructions would solve my identical issue, but ... sadly, no.


I connect my Windows 7 laptop to the K1 with the supplied cable, and in LeTools, nothing appears in the USB discovered devices section (or in the WiFi connections section for that matter).


Any other suggestions?
