NI-3100 IP issues
I have an NI-3100 that does everything that it is supposed to do until I want to connect to it via the ethernet port and use NetLinx Studio. I always have to power cycle it. If I am doing code, I usually leave open the debugger so the connection will stay hot. It seems if left alone for a bit, the ethernet port ceases to work with Studio until I reboot it via a power cycle. Is there a setting somewhere that is causing this? As mentioned, it controls everything just fine, even the items controlled via IP. The only time I have any problems is when I connect my PC to the network switch and try to connect to it with Netlinx Studio. The problem might lie within the switch, but our network guys are always quick to point their fingers at the devices as compared to their switches. Any suggestions?
