When you took the FBV Express MKII back to the store and tested it there with another amp, did you use a different network cable (the store's)? Or did you bring the same one you're using at home?
The majority of behavioral glitches that I've encountered between FBV and host devices have been due to a bad CAT-5/Ethernet cable, believe it or not.
When you connect the FBV Express MKII to a host computer with USB, are you saying that Line 6 Monkey does "not" automatically detect it? Which version of Line 6 Monkey software do you have installed?

Thanks for getting back to me Perry.
When I took it back to the store, I used the same CAT5 cable (The one that came with the FBV Expresss mkii).
(I have 2 others I have at home which I tried with the same results).
Yes, Line 6 Monkey does not pick it up at all. I installed line 6 monkey the same day I bought the pedal (Mon 16th JAN 2012) so i asssume it is the latest version.
Furthermore to all that has happened thus far there has been more developments...
Before last night, I could not callibrate the pedal (the toe switch was clicking, but not working). basically stuck on '1'.
Callibration worked before I did any update (On the day of Purchase).
I tried plugging it back into my PC last night (for interest sake) and the LED's started flashing quite dimly (But was not picked up by my PC) Now... things have changed once again.
As it stands:
Everytime I plug the CAT5 cable into the pedal and remove it, it acts like the toe switch (activating either Vol /Wah each time).
Toe switch still however does not work.
When I try Calibrace it now, it completely skips step '1' and goes straight to step 2 (powering amp on with 'D' held down).
I have noticed on these threads very similar issue's that some people have been experiencing... I However seem to be experiencing them all.
Any sort of insight or help you may have to offer will be greatly appreciated.

This sounds like a hardware problem with the FBV Express is it continues to not connect to a computer via USB. Make sure to test all of the computer's USB ports and remove all other USB devices while troubleshooting this problem. If you are within the return period with your dealer, you may want to try to swap it out with a new one, or contact an authorized service center:
