Re: new EdgeRouter X will not reset

Did you try 192.168.1.1 instead of 192.16.1.1?

 

best regards,

Re: new EdgeRouter X will not reset

Try to set static IP on your pc:

ip=192.168.1.2, subnet=255.255.255.0

edgerouter doesn´t hand out DHCP when being reset.

 

Best regards,

Re: new EdgeRouter X will not reset

set your PC to 192.168.1.2 with the subnet mask 255.255.255.0 and gateway 192.168.1.1

 

Then with the PC plugged into eth0, the ER should respond if you ping 192.168.1.1 (or open a webbrowser and navigate to https://192.168.1.1).

 

Note that these devices take about 5 minutes to boot after you've done a factory reset on them.

Re: new EdgeRouter X will not reset

I am connected now. Just wondering if eth0 is only to config Router not as a device such as a pc to connect to internet?

Re: new EdgeRouter X will not reset

well, out of the box it's the config port.  setup wizard will usually set it as the WAN port

Re: new EdgeRouter X will not reset

Once it is a WAN port can it still be used to configure?

Re: new EdgeRouter X will not reset

well, you "can" manage it from the internet, but that's generally a bad idea.

 

Once you finish running the configuration wizard (and reboot when prompted), it'll listen on ports 1,2,3,4 for additional configuration.

Thank You. It is up and running and I will just use 1,2,3,4

Re: new EdgeRouter X will not reset

Glad that I found this, was facing the same issues:

 

<Note that these devices take about 5 minutes to boot after you've done a factory reset on them.>

 

It would be great that the Quick Start Guide would mention this, and / or the leds would blink in particular way while the device is re-booting.
