Author Topic: Guruplug won't show up on network (can't access)  (Read 1668 times)
« on: May 20, 2011, 04:28:30 PM »

I received my Guruplug last week. I was really excited at first but the device soon turned out to be a brick laying around on my desk.

I first had a hell of a time configuring the device's DNS so I could install updates.

I tried configuring the init_setup file for the wireless to work.

I restarted. Then it happened, the device is not showing up on the network.

I ordered the JTAG and I am trying to connect with Putty on Windows XP but there is nothing in the console. I see the blinking lights as I type.

Anyone can help me please ?

Thank you

The serial connection using putty on XP is a delicate business. I do use it but not often. Serial connection on a Linux box always works (for me).
For XP my magic approach is:

1) Unplug the USB port.
2) count to 10
3) connect USB port
4) count to 10
5) check to see if it is working (via Device Manager), if not goto step 1)

If still not working try cold booting XP and cold booting plug then repeat steps 1 thru 5.
