Have Digital Sprite 2 with static ip. No network connection.
The unit is physically attached to our network but it refuses to connect into the network. Cannot be pinged and the lights don't turn on on the unit or the switch. If disconnected and reconnected the light on the switch will blink in amber but no solid green and then dissapear. Have another similar unit with identical settings(except ip address) and that one works fine.

You need to attach a DHCP-server to the hub/switch, and configure that DHCP-server to "reserve" a specific IP-address for the MAC-address for the network adapter inside each of the computers that is to receive a "static" IP-address.
For a DHCP-server, you can connect a "cross-over" Ethernet cable from one of the switch-ports to one of the LAN-ports on any "home" wired router. That "home/SOHO" router will become the DHCP-server for all the computers connected to the switch.
Static IP addresses are often used for computers that host specific services, or for computers on small, manually managed networks. To set up a static IPv4 address on a Windows Vista computer, first find an IP address that is not currently in use and is outside the DHCP assignable range (if applicable). Then follow either of the procedures below. From the taskbar:
1. Right click on the network connection icon in the system notification tray. 2. Select Network and Sharing Center. 3. Under Tasks, select Manage network connections. 4. Right click on the network connection that you want to set up the IP address for (Local Area Connection, Wireless Network Connection, etc.) 5. Select Properties. 6. If the User Account Control window pops up, select Continue. 7. Click on Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4). 8. In the Properties window, click the circle next to Use the following IP address. 9. Enter the IP address that you want to assign to the computer. 10. Enter the subnet mask and default gateway. (For small or home networks, these will typically be 255.255.255.0 and 192.168.1.1, respectively.) 11. Enter the IP address of the DNS server next to Preferred DNS server. 12. If you have an alternate DNS server, enter that IP address as well. 13. Click OK to save the changes. From the Start menu:
1. Click the Vista orb. 2. Right click on Network. 3. Follow the procedure above from step #3.
Reserving an IP address under DHCP is different from setting up a static IP address. To reserve an IP address, log into your router's configuration utility and look for a heading such as DHCP or IP Address Distribution. You will probably need either the computer's Windows name or its MAC address to reserve an IP address for it.
Try unplugging it from the network, make the changes, and see if it holds. Also, change the Static IP to some other network, say 192.168.1.1 just to see if it takes. Make sure you're making the changes FROM the device, while physically in front of the device, NOT from their console.
You have not provided enough information to answer this definatively. However, one possible answer exists, if this relates to leased lines from a service provider or telephone company. Leased lines involve a physical connection and a network layer logical connection. At the physical layer, there are no assigned IP addresses, just devices that transform analog to digital signals (and vice versa).. The installation person should have checked signal conductivity as part of the service. The next layer up (TCP/IP), has IP addresses, either given to you on some paperwork, or via dynamic IP Address assignment request. If the service promises a static IP address, then your paperwork (for example, setup instructions) contains any access authentication (required); a group of 4 or 6 numbers, separated by periods; and at least a 2nd set of 4/6 numbers designated as your default route IP. Otherwise, you may have to turn on DHCP and let your external router port retrieve your assigned (static) IP address from the network device at the other end of your network connection. The returned IP address is your assigned static IP address. Just make sure it is not 10.x.x.x, or 127.0.x.x, or 192.168.x.x. Those address ranges are not routable in the larger Internet space.
Not certain of your question, but first, set up a single PC to connect to the SG565 unit. Information is entered from that PC.
The initial steps are:
1 Connect your administrative PC to the SG unit: - If you are setting up the SG560, SG565 or SG580, attach your PC's network interface card directly any network port on switch A (A1 - A4) using the supplied network cable.
2 Modify your PC's network settings to enable communication with the SG unit. Click Start > (Settings >) Control Panel and double-click Network Connections. Right-click Local Area Connection and click Properties. Note: If there is more than one existing network connection, select the one corresponding to the NIC to which the SG unit is attached.
3 Select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click Properties. The Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties dialog box is displayed.
4 Select Use the following IP address and enter: - IP address: 192.168.0.100 - Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0 - Default gateway: 192.168.0.1
5 Select Use the following DNS server addresses and enter Preferred DNS server: 192.168.0.1
Yes, it must be attached to the network
0. Install the yellow machine software on the PC
1.Log on to the Yellow Machine Manager. Go to “Logging On To Yellow Machine Manager” on page 8.
2.From the Yellow Machine Manager, click Network > Network Interfaces. The Network Interfaces window appears.
4.Select Yes to Enable LAN Interface. Default: Yes (Enabled)
• If you select No, all other LAN option fields are blocked.
• If you disable the LAN Interface, the only access to the Yellow Machine appliance is
through the WAN port. Anthology Solutions does not recommend this configuration.
5.Check Enable DHCP Service if the DHCP service is needed for the PCs attached to the Yellow Machine appliance’s LAN ports. This setting makes the Yellow Machine appliance the DHCP server for your LAN (or sub-network), providing IP addresses dynamically for the clients connected to the LAN ports. Default: Checked (Disabled)
6.Select either Obtain IP Address Automatically from DHCP Server, or Static IP Address. Default: Static IP Address
• Choose Obtain IP Address Automatically from DHCP Server if your Yellow Machine
appliance connects to either a router that has DHCP service enabled or to a cable
modem. This setting makes the Yellow Machine appliance a DHCP client on your
• Obtain IP Address from ADSL provider is greyed out.
• Choose Static IP Address if your network is locally defined and controlled and does not
use DHCP services. Type the IP address manually.
7.Specify IP address and Subnet mask if you selected a Static IP Address, and click Apply.
8.Click Yes to confirm, No to abort. The changes takes affect within five seconds after the network interface change notice appears.
You need two network adopters in your system. Connect Internet connection in first Network card and from the other network card give it to your Switch or hub If you are using XP system you can use Internet connection sharing to share the internet in your LAN systems. Follow the steps to enable using ICS
1.Enable Internet Connection sharing in the LAN properties in the first network card. 2.Now your second network card automatically get an IP address in the range of 192.168.*.* series 3.Connect other systems in the LAN and make sure the system has selected Optain IP atomatically from DHCP.
You are all set.
There is also an advanced way to setup this . Install IPCOP firewall in a system with two network cards and u can share the internet with the firewall settings
