Error "Failed to connect. Make sure your device is connected to a same WiFi network"

Hello everyone!
New to the forum, and as bad as I feel to come here and with my first post talk about a bug, I am here to do exactly that!
Got a simple network setup here, PC connected to wireless router, phone connected to the same wireless router. I can ping the phone from my Windows 7 PC, and http://ipaddress worked before, along with http://web.airdroid.com.
I tried for the second time today after this update and it doesn't work anymore! I can still ping the phone, but I get the error showing up in yellow at the top of the screen almost instantly, as soon as I scan the QR code: "Failed to connect. Make sure your device is connected to a same WiFi network." Trying the password instead of the QR code yields the same exact error.
My phone is a T-mobile USA HTC One S. The PC is a fairly well spec'd Windows 7 Premium machine. Router is a standard WRT54G.
Do you guys have any suggestions on how to troubleshoot this? I currently do not have access to other network configurations, as this is my work PC at my office, but I would really like for it to work as it did previously!
Thanks in advance for any help!

I should note I am using Opera. It works on IE apparently. So at least that! But I really hate IE... do you guys think you'll make a version that is Opera tested?
Best Regards

Same problem over here (Galaxy Nexus, Android 4.0.4) connecting to a ThinkPad T520 running openSUSE 12.1 and Firefox 12. Both are in the same network, but fail to connect.

can you ping your phone? (start>run>type cmd>type ping web.airdroid.com and see if you get a reply)
if you can't, then there is a connection problem between your pc and phone, maybe a firewall?

I have the same problem. The first time I used it on my Galaxy Nexus with Chrome, it worked great. But after the 1st use, I am not able to get it working again. Not even on firefox. Please fix this problem
