Lost Power - Elk connection problem
#1
Lost power, and when system came up, couldn't connect to Elk.  Did a find, and the IP address is now 169.254.247.6.  For years It's been 192.168.1.89, which matches my router at 192.168.1.1.  This looks like some sort of switch address.  Any ideas on how I can revert back to my prior address?  

Dean, my annual subscription is due, and as usual I'm having trouble finding where to do it on the web page Smile

Thanks

169.254.0.1 through 169.254.255.254 are the random addresses that DHCP clients grab when they start up, to ask for a correct address. Whomever issues your DHCP addresses is likely the culprit, or you Elk switched to DHCP from static.

Thanks zaccari,
I put another device configured as dhcp on the same ethernet cable.  If got an ip address correctly from the router.  The elk WAS configured for static.  Find gets the 169.254 address.  Unfortunately I can't talk to it via that address.  

Anyone any ideas?

Browse to the address of 192.168.1.1 and find the screen that shows dhcp assignments. Hopefully the elk will be in that list and you will know the address.

What is 'find'?

From the home page pick "Buy" from the main menu, agree to the terms, the CAMF is the first item under Upgrades/Coverage

Find is an option in M1XEP Setup that looks for the device.  I find it, but the dhcp address is bad.  I put another device on the same cable, and it get a dhcp address consistent with my LAN.
I connected the m1xep directly to the router.  The router LAN led was red instead of white, so something is up.   Angry

Replaced the M1XEP and all is good. A $300 power surge.
