M2 loco What have i done wrong ???

Hi everyone

 

Very generous friend of mine gave me 2 M2 locos

He says they've been flashed and they are ready to be configured using the default IP 192.168 0.1. 20

 

However when I run the setup I can't seem to get to the web interface I type in the 192.168.1.20 and nothing happens yet when I ping that IP I get communication so I know it's working it seems I can't connect to the M2 on the chrome browser.

 

I followed the steps online by changing my IP for from assigned automatically to a static IP  and the network card ip on my dell lat e5440  I tried many combinations but I'm scratching my head

 

I'm sure it's something really simple I've overlooked and I would be very grateful if someone could point me in the right direction I have tried resetting the M2 by pressing the pin to default it but I don't seem to get the four lights flashing simultaneously.

 

Please help

 

Many thanks

 

Danny

Re: M2 loco What have i done wrong ???

All you should need to do is give your wired network interface a static IP like:

 

192.168.1.100

255.255.255.0

 

Other than that, you may want to disable any wireless network interface to avoid any conflict.

 

When you connect the radio to your computer, do you get an ethernet link on the computer?

 

Alternatively, you can contact support via help.ubnt.com, but it may be worthwhile to confirm with your friend that these units were in working order.

Re: M2 loco What have i done wrong ???

Did you try disabling all other network interfaces on your computer?

 

My only other suggestion would be to try a TFTP recovery: https://help.ubnt.com/hc/en-us/articles/204911324-airMAX-How-to-Reset-Your-Device-with-TFTP-Firmware...

 

I would suggest giving this a try on another computer and/or confirming with the person you purchased that these are functional radios.

Hi, I have similar problem with one loco m2 and one loco m5. I can flash firmware over lan port with tftp (via reset button or via serial urescue -f -e) everythng looks good, device print serial messages and 'booting' message but I cannot ping it or access web UI. I have tried it several times with same results. The device is pingable only in tftp mode. Can someone help me what to check next? (the m2 loco is few years old) thanks.

Hi All 

 

Thanks for the replys

 

So far i have done all suggestions 

 

Dissabled the wifi 

 

Different ip addresses in the ip4 on the adaptor settings.

 

Tried hard reset on the unit and the POE injector .

 

And i have tried the flash recovery .

 

I can only guess now both units are faulty ??

 

I have 2 m5 locos onthe way so i will configure those on my setup and repost my findings.
