any help would be appreciated thanks
Upgrade to ARC Pro
Harnessing the power of ARC Pro, your robot can be more than just a simple automated machine.
If your EZ-B is in client mode, then you are trying to connect to the wrong IP address. You need to hit the Search icon (little antennae) next to the IP address to find your EZ-B.
@thetechguru I tried searching for ip and couldn't find one at all
and if I click yes on first message it takes me to a tut for v3 on youtube
If you need to run in AP mode, you will have issues if your network follows the 192.168.1.x scheme and you are connected to it (through another wifi card or through a wired connection) and your EZB. This is because your network will assume that 192.168.1.1 should go to the router (if that is your gateway) instead of the EZB.
If your computer has a wired and wireless lan connection, unplug the wired. That is where an IP address conflict would originate.
Reset the EZ-B (press the reset button while powered on). This will make sure it is in AP mode.
Follow the tutorial for connecting in AP mode. Basics below:
Open wireless settings on PC and find access point starting with EZ followed by some letters and numbers.
Connect to it.
Start ARC and connect to the default (192.168.1.1:23)
Once that is working, we can get the EZ-B talking to the router so you don't need to be disconnected from the internet when using the EZ-B.
Sometimes it's the simplest things that are easily overlooked. Glad your back up and running.
The important ip address.
