Connection Issues

I can't connect my EZ-B to my computer, and the tutorials are not helping.  I'm able to get the wifi connection running, I boot up EZ-Builder, but the debug log says...

Connection Failed: System.Net.Sockets.SocketException (0x80004005): No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it 192.168.1.1:23
at System.Net.Sockets.Socket.InternalEndConnect(IAsyncResult asyncResult)
at System.Net.Sockets.Socket.EndConnect(IAsyncResult asyncResult)
at System.Net.Sockets.TcpClient.EndConnect(IAsyncResult asyncResult)
at EZ_B.EZB.Connect(String hostname, Int32 baudRate)
Disconnected

What do I do here?

"the easiest way is to simply disconnect the Ethernet cable from behind the computer. Connect to the ezb and change the ezb address. Then, plug the Ethernet back in:)"
It worked!  Thank you so much!:D

So, this is exactly what I said in the first reply to your question, with the additional details of why this works.   In order to help me communicate better, can you tell me what you didn't understand from my response?

also to help other users, can you confirm you have 2 networks working i.e. cable and wifi ? and what is the address you used for the EZB.

Ptp, it works fine with two networks. There’s a robot program episode about how to set it up. And it’s how we operate all our robots at the office. All our laptops have a WiFi usb dongle for robots.:)

Quote:

If Windows has multiple interfaces connected to several networks that use DHCP, it installs default gateways for all those interfaces.
By default, Windows sets the metric of the default gateways to the same, effectively leading to random selection of default gateway.
When I tried, the one selected was the EZB default gateway (dead end)

I don't like random stuff:)

lol, it's not that complicated:D you could check https://192-168-0-1.us/routers-default-ip-addresses/ for default gateway address.
