So I just got my pre built openrov not to long ago in the mail and was going to start setting it up. The problem I'm facing now is I can't connect to the cockpit page at http://192.168.254.1:8080/ I've tried Chrome and firefox with no luck. Pinging the address 192.168.254.1 results in a "Destination not reachable" It says OpenRov-flash-22.214.171.124 on the flash. The serial is 1628 and interestingly enough on the pre shipping checklist the "Camera and IMU data streams" check is circled unlike the others which are just signed off??
I've heard about issues with the homeplug not working so I disconnected that and plug the ethernet cable directly into beagleboard with no luck :( When I power the rov up after a while the LED lights on the front start blinking. Is that meant to be an indication of when its started up fully? It also says on the beagleboard site that you can connect to it using http://192.168.7.2/ which also didn't work for me. I've also tried connecting without the webcam plugged in but that didn't help. Visually inspected the wiring inside nothing seems wrong. Also checked the ethernet cable I was using for shorts and it seems fine.
So how do I go about troubleshooting this? Also if its a firmware thing then how would I update the firmware when I can't access the cockpit? Any help would be appreciated I'm super excited to get my little robot going but this has just stumped me :(
