Could use some pointers on getting the Kit connected to the laptop the first time.
In order to verify everything works before wiring it in to the case, I got hold of a 12V power supply and have everything laid out on a bench.
Note, if the Red SPI IF led goes off on the cape it appears to indicate low current. The electronics appear to be pulling .11A just sitting with network plugged in.
So now I have all green lights. I am using a cross-over cable to connect the bb+cape to my Mac's gigabit port. I have one green and one yellow light on the bb NIC. I have also confirmed that the 12/2 build of the software is loaded on the SD card in the bb.
I only have the LEDs, Camera, case servo attached at the moment.
I have set my NIC on the laptop to a manual IP of 192.168.254.2. It is my understanding from the the software readme that the bb should be listening to 192.168.254.1 regardless of the availability of DHCP for an address.
Yet my pings from the laptop are failing and I am unable to browse http://192.168.254.1:8080/
