Well that’s an odd one. I brought it home and hooked it into my home network, and it works fine. It does not operate on my office network. I’m wondering if it’s the IP scheme we use at work, or the network topology itself. It was able to grab an IP , get the NTP information, and set the time. After that it just freaks out. I can’t say it’s the network hardware, I connect about a dozen computers a week up to my network for repairs and none of them have ever had an issue like this.
I notice there’s no subnet mask to set, is that automatic based on your IP/gateway? Or does it not use one at all? I’m wondering if it’s picking up the network traffic from every subnet in the office network and just flipping out.
