IP Address problem

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 ( I cannot reach 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 on your mac?

Try changing your ip address to or

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 ( 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

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.

Problem was resolved reflashed the SD card and everything works.


Hello everyone,

During our ROV operations we used different USB dongles to connect our BlueROV2 to our computer Now I have an issue with the static IP address preventing me to connect my BlueROV2 to QGroudControl on my laptop. It seems that the static IP address is not applied. So I took all the dongles that we used and reset them on “obtain an IP address automatically”. But the problem remains.

Here a description of what is happening.

First, I enter the IP address in the control panel settings.

Then I close the windows and check with command prompt to verify if the IP address has changed using the “ipconfig” command. But as you can see below the IP address is not the one that I enter and seems to remain with an IP address giving by the DHCP protocol.

If I go back to the control panel, the static IP address is no longer display but it did not switch to the automatic IP address.

I try to enter the IP address via command control using the command: “netsh interface ipv4 set address name=“XXX” static” same results. If I use another computer, I manage to connect the BlueROV2 without any problem of this kind.

Does anyone know what is happening and how to resolve this?

If it can help my setup is:

-QGround Control v.4.1.6

-BlueOS v.1.0.1

ArduSub v.4.0.3

Thanks in advance for your answers.
