I have not been able to connect to the ez b v4 from the EZbuilder app. My computer recognizes it as a wifi source and I can connect to it but thats as far as I can go. When I open EZbuilder and try to connect it fails every time. I have disabled the firewall on the computer but still no luck. Attached is an image of the error message I get. Any thoughts?
Upgrade to ARC Pro

And have you reset it to defaults using the reset button?
Nope.can't access the we configuration page.
Is your IP address on the computer hardcoded?
This is a really unusual situation because you mentioned the web configuration can’t even be viewed. Yet, the chime and all is operating as normal. There’s definitely something on the windows pc preventing web configuration connection as well as the ezb connection. The most interesting part of this story is the device scanner works - which means the ezb is broadcasting to the pc.
I’ve never come across something like this before. It’s very difficult sometimes to depend on another company’s product - in this case we’re talking about Microsoft Windows operating system. Sure, it’s great... but it allows apps, viruses and configurations which can affect operation of other things it’s meant to do. This being one of them.
What ip are you assigned?
Can you ping 192.168.1.1?
What error does your web browser give when viewing the web configuration at http://192.168.1.1
Lastly, what version is the ezb?
Have you ever been able to connect to it?
After your last post it entered my mind that this might not be the right computer to use for this project. Let me explain more... I am a Mac guy in general. I have a custom made program for a touch screen program I use for interactive trade show displays I build. I have a PC to connect through ethernet to those touch screens to program them. If memory serves... I had my programmer configure the pc to connect directly to the screens and not have to use a router to create a network. I thought maybe that that was causing a problem here as another address has been assigned to the pc. I can go online via wifi though so maybe that isn't the problem.
Anyway.... I just installed the EZ program on my wife's PC and has no problem at all connecting to the EZ-B so time to get a new PC for this project I guess and go from there.
Many Thanks to all those who chimed in.
Here's something i was going to ask you to do something that would have identified if there are more than one networks. At command prompt, you can enter the command IPCONFIG and it will show the ip addresses of all networks.
1) Press the windows button
2) Type CMD (press enter)
3) A command window will open
4) Now type IPCONFIG in the command window
