Will not detect

I am trying to connect the sntv704 video server to my laptop (asus a3e, 2 months old)via a crossover cable. I am using the ip setup program from the sony site to assign an ip address and it does not detect the device in the list. I have tried both version 1.2 and 1.4 of the ip setup program and uninstalled the first version before trying the next and still no luck. I have also disabled the firewall and antivirus software for nortons that i am using and have checked the windows firewall is not enabled. My laptop ip is set to 192.168.0.1, but i have also tried it with my laptop using auto assign just in case. can any one help me please?

First: Keep in mind that you do this at your own risk.
I had the same problem and after trying Chris Bell suggestion I managed to change the IP to 10.1.1.1. That was the first time I was getting an okay message from the system.

Anyway, I still did not see the homepage, although, with the IP Setup tool I had a connection. I opened up the SNT-V704 and noticed a small button on the PCB, after pressing it 5 short times I finalley managed to see the homescreen and use it. Try it and if you have an unused SNT-V704, try my suggestions.

Ok well all I can suggest is this... first try a NON-crossover cable.. 2nd.. try the address of 10.1.1.1 The server should be setup according to the manual.. and should be detected upon connection, Also is the server to be set up to ASSIGN an address via it's DCHP or to RECIEVE one from ya lappy? I mean basically it is just a network device that sends stuff when asked, not unlike a networked Hard Drive etc. Usually ya set up the lappy for DHCP and the Video Server gets it's address from the lappy, & when "Polled" sends data to whomever "Polled" it.

Installing Dell PowerEdge R710 DVR Server


  1. VIA a serial cable (looks like monitor cable is not). You have use something like telnet. Old school and very technical.
  2. Just connect a monitor, keyboard, and mouse and treat like a regular PC. Can't go wrong.

OTC Wireless Bridge


Alright I have good news and bad news the good news is: if you remove your IP Phones the setup will work again. Once it is working plug in one of your IP phones with Laptop plugged into the bridge. Once the IP phone is connected test if the Laptop remains connected. The use another Laptop with crossover cable to connect it to the IP Phone one question (is the IP Phone acting as a bridge between the OTC Router and the Laptop?)If it is it can pull an IP address if the OTC Router is a router and the IP phone is acting as a routed interface bridge. Once you get this to work duplicate the setup for the rest of you IP phones and laptops. BTW you do realize you are pummeling the router with RTP/UDP packets? I hope this helps Thank you, Shuttle83

I am trying to connect an old desktop to a laptop inorder to use it's monitor via a serial cable. It doesn't seem to recognize the desktop. What am I doing wrong?


First off two computers will no automatically "find" each other using using a serial cable
Why don't you just connect the old pc's monitor directly to the laptop? I am assuming your laptop monitor either stopped working or is too small for your liking. By plugging in the monitor you can use it right on the laptop.
another option is to use a crossover cable plugged into the network (ethernet ports) assign static ip address (suggest 192.168.0.1 & 192.168.0.2, mask of 255.255.255.0 on both and default gateway of 192.168.0.1) then use the remote desktop under accessories and use one to take over the other, just open the remote desktop, type in the ip address of the one you want to get to and boom you are working.
Let me know if you have any other questions

I have an extendnet sx ESI-2811 Print Server. It doesn't work and I can't ping it when directly connected to my laptop via ethernet cable. It must be broken. Any ideas?


Use a crossover cable to connect laptop directly. Does your print server have a static IP address and do you know what it is? If yes, set a static IP on your laptop that is in the same subnet and with the same mask, then you should be able to ping it. If the print server is obtaining an IP by DHCP, you will have to set up and run a DHCP server on the laptop (or connect it with a straight-thru cable to an existing router that offers this service).

Connect ps3 to laptop via web and walk


Connecting PS3 to a network I have LinkSys wireless router which is working perfectly for other devices (like laptop, Xbox360, TiVO). My wireless network is configured to NOT broadcast the SID and with a WEP key. After entering this manually in the network setup on my PS3, I was able to obtain an ip address from my router, I was able to open the configureation page on my router, but connecting to the internet would fail with some kind of DNS error. The way this was resolved for me, was to enter the DNS server addresses manually in the PS3 network settings AND use tetertiary DNS server from my ISP as either the primary or the secondary DNS server. ..btw, this also fixed the similar problem I had with my PSP.. Thanks!

Can't connect WGPS606 wireless printer server to cable router


suggest plugging print server directly into p.c via blue ethernet cable during setup. Then run setup program and then pick an ip address that works with your router (in same network ip range of router) that does not clash . I would use print server as a switch if it is close to the router by ethernet cable between router and wireless print server. Then both should work
Wireless to server and other wired computers as well .

I'm looking to hookup the DVR with the PC via A cross-over cable


I have 2 DX2000's, In order for you to communicate with your pc, you need a Crossover cable, if you have a laptop or computers, connect the crossover cable to that, set your ip address on your computer to 192.168.2.108, (Note: since you never configured it, this would be the default setting). If you have the manual this is in there.,

Another method, if you don't have a crossover cable is to set the ip on your computer to 192.168.2.110 Subnet, 255.255.255.0. its a little more funky, the crossover would be easier, once you get in, then go to the configuration page and setup up the IPaddess for the DX2000, the Gateway to your Router and the subnet mask, once you do this, then you're able to get to it on your network, by typing in http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8004 .

DPR-1260 ... prints but cannot access web config page


To get into the web configuration you need to know your firmware on the DPR-1260. If it is 1.12, us http://dlinkps-xxxxxx where the X's are the last 6 number of the mac address. If it is 1.20 and up, use http://dlink-xxxxxx, where the x's are the last 6 number of the mac address. If you do set it up as DHCP or static and know the ip address of the print server just type in the ip address of the print server on the address bar.
