The first time I connected the ROV to the computer it worked great! Did the laser calibration and everything. Now, however, cockpit won’t open. When I got to http://184.108.40.206:8080 Chrome returns “This webpage is not available” And we need to bring the ROV with us for research next Tuesday! I don’t know why it stopped working. All the wiring looks fine. I’ve followed these troubleshooting steps from a previous forum discussion, but it still won’t connect.
Are all three lights on the topside adapter
NO; the middle LED (to homeplug) is on at first, but then turns off.
If so, try pulling out the ethernet cable and pushing it back in making sure it get pushed in all the way.
If still having problems, can you “ping 192.168.254.1” successfully?
NO I get “request timeout… host is down”
3a. If not, have you validated that your laptop is still configured with a hardcoded 192.168.254.x address
3b.If yes, can you ssh in to the ROV using a tool like putty?
How do I do that?
I’ve also tried this: “1) Ensure that both wires on the tether are securely connected to the topside adapter. 2) Press and hold the reset/sync button on the topside adapter for 3 seconds, and then do the same to the one one in the ROV.” Didn’t seem to help.
I also got a microSD card and imaged it with the 2.7 software, and plugged into the BBB but it didn’t seem to do anything different. There are no lights on the BBB (not that blue one that’s suppose to be there…) and the Ethernet port doesn’t light up either.
What do you think I should do from here?
Many thanks for your help!
