IP Address problem


(Russ T. Bercle) #1

My blue Rov will not show up in Qground. when I plug in the ethernet into my mac. I get a message saying Another device on the network is using your computer’s IP address (192.168.2.1). I cannot reach 192.168.2.2:2770/network on the internet.

Any help is appreciated.

Have you ever changed the ip address here?

It sounds like you have changed the BROV2’s ip address. Can you open a terminal and show us the output of ifconfig and ping 192.168.2.1 on your mac?

Try changing your ip address to 192.168.2.8 or 192.168.2.34.

here are the results to the Ifconfig and ping, the ip got changed in a page similar to what is in that link you sent. so the 2.2 must be 2.1 resulting in the Another device on the network is using your computer’s IP address (192.168.2.1) error, i tried switching the ip to 2.8 and it didnt seem to connect the rov to Qground and same results with 2.34

But I if i click on the network link on that page it just doesn’t load. then shows this

This site can’t be reached

192.168.2.2 took too long to respond.

ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT

Also the light at the front of the raspberry pi is solid red. Don’t know if that is helpful.

It doesn’t look like you have configured the network on your computer. Please review the software setup instructions and make sure you have completed every step. If you still have trouble, try the troubleshooting steps here.
