NI700 won't talk to me
I've just pulled my spare NI700 out for some testing, plugged it into a router (with nothing else connected apart from my laptop) and fired up NetLinx Studio. I found the controller and reset the IP settings to use DHCP. This, apparently, was successful. But, on rebooting the unit, it now does not appear anywhere.
The router says that there is nothing connected to this port, and even when I plug it into another router, via a managed switch, it is not seen. However, the managed switch does indicate that something is plugged in (but this switch doesn't reveal IP addresses). The lights on the network port of the NI700 light up, and the Link/Act light on the front also lights up.
So, I try to talk to it via the control port. Make sure that I'm using the correct speed and....nothing. Can't be contacted. This is using a known, working, serial cable and USB to serial adapter.
I would use the ID button, but have never had any success with that (and, yes I have tried it with zero success).
Any ideas anyone?
