The obvious questions

by NickNielsen In reply to network help

Is the embedded device configured to use DHCP? Can it be configured to use DHCP to get an IP address? You may need to configure BootP on your DHCP host.

No, the obvious question is...

Are you connecting the EP to the router with the crossover cable? Your answer should be "No, of course not!"

Invalid assumption on my part

I had assumed that it was even more obvious to swap cables before connecting to the router.

Don't worry if you did this, Skawa100. Everybody else has done it too!
