Get no IP - What's wrong?
#1
Hello community,

  I'm new here and got my kit today and soldered right away.
  It lacks only the 2 filter IC's because I am not clear in which filter I should solder them.
  There are 4 on the circuit board.
  Does not it matter?
  First everything built into the case and then connected a 5V 2A power supply.
  The red power LED lights up and it beeps twice -
  then the mode LED flickers very weak and after some time it beeps again.
  The LEDs on the network socket light or flicker with the traffic on the network.
  Unfortunately, I get from DHCP (SBS Server 2011) obviously no IP address.
  Even a test for a new router with DHCP was unsuccessful.

  Have again taken the board out of the housing and tested all solder joints - looks good.
  Inside, the red LED on the GPS receiver is flashing. There is a new GPS antenna connected.
  The 2 crystals are on the correct position.

  Does anyone have a tip for me ....

  Greetings from Carinthia,

Hola Carinthia, Try searching for the IP address with a tool like Angry IP Scanner ( http://angryip.org/ ).

Thank you for the answer!

I tried to connect the USB to a PC an boot in DFU Mode.
I verified the Firmware with the 8.1 on https://tracker.blitzortung.org/firmware/dfu/
It does not match. I uploaded the Firmware to my PC an edit it with a Editor and there i found: .... PCB-Ver: %s  PCB-Id: %d 8.3 RED/ Nov 14 2017 23:01:40  ....
Is there the wrong Firmware on the System ? I have a BLUE System.
Is there a 8.3 dfu File for download and upgrade ?

There was a wrong firmware pre-installed on the controller.
I upgraded ist to 8.1 and now the system is running.


Via Web Interface i updated to 8.3 - seems ok.

Leave them out to start with and decide later where to fit them, if at all. Unless you have nearby VLF transmitters or a noise source that your can't conrtol you probably won't need them. Carefull antenna orientation can effectively remove an interference signal without the possible side effects that filtering can bring along.

The board has four channels, 3 for H-Field, 1 for E-Field. It would be normal to filter the first two H-Field channels but it really does depend on your local electro-magnetic enviroment.

I had the same problem here on three boards.

Had to flash firmware 8.1 in Defuse mode.
Then upgrade to 8.3 via WUI.

Thank you very much for your answer!
I will locate my antennas on a suitable Location first.
