After configuring my Roli to client mode, it says that it connected successfully to my WLAN. But the ARC scan cannot find it :-(
It may be a policy (firewall?) problem, but I have not installed or activated any AV software. [Using Win8]
Upgrade to ARC Pro

My router shows 2 MAC and IP addresses, dunno how to interpret.
Okay, the address seems to be correct.
OT: how can I read your answers when they are available? Some alert option, or manual retry required?
if your IP address is 10.10.10.100 your scan range in ARC should be 10.10.10.1 to 10.10.10.254.
Outch, the scan range is 192.168.42.xxx!
That's the address of a VMWare local network.
How do I change the address to scan?
From there click Local Area Connection (blue text) then click the details button. Your IP 4v Address is the line you are looking for.
restart ARC, or you could go to your DHCP leases page on your router and find the IP address for the V4 and plug that into the connection box.
If your router shows only 2 leases, one of them is probably your computer (192.168.1.8). The other should be the EZ-B.
Again: how do I instruct Builder to use the right network?
There is no way to change this value in ARC.
Again, find the IP address on the leases page of your router and plug it into the connection in ARC and you will be fine.
If the network is not configurable in Builder, the software is unusable for me.
Or do you mean that I *should* run the Builder in a VM, and adjust the VMWare network address to what Builder expects?
VMware is causing your issue, not ARC. DJ could change the software to allow you to enter the third octet in the scan range but this would probably cause more issues than trying to just fix yours.
The router is handing out the ip address. It knows it and will display it to you if you look. If you are unable to do this, you could try to connect to 192.168.1.9 assuming your router assigned you the next address in the range.
You could run through vmware which could solve your problem. The issue is that VMware uses bridging and routing to pass traffic through its virtual network port to your machines physical network port. The bridging is probably messing up ARCs ability to find the correct subnet to use.
I seriously doubt that running through VMWare will solve this for you. It would probably show up as an even more incorrect IP address range.
if the screens are in German, I dont know that I will be of much help deciphering the language, but I know what I am looking for and will know it when I see it. It will probably take some clicking and trial and error, but, once I see the table, I will be able to tell you what your IP for the EZ-B is.
will need that and the password in teamviewer, then after I get connected, we will edit your post to remove them.
We also can chat, I've xchat running in a Linux VM.
Roli is already moving and dancing, and the camera works. Now I can start digging into the details...
Remains one question: can I assign the robot a static IP address? It seems to change with every power on. But I fear that this had to be done in the router, and that looks impossible to me right now.
