AS-1298 No Ethernet Link
« on: 2020-01-24, 21:33:54 »
I just received an AS-1289 antenna switch.  Communication with the device via USB and Microbit Setup works fine.  I assigned an IP address, netmask, def gateway, etc.
However, I cannot communicate with it via an ethernet connection to my router.  Have tried several different cables.  Further, there is no flashing ethernet Link LED as I would expect. 

No problems with similar RRC1258MkII ethernet setup and connection.

Any suggestions?  TNX

Dean, did you set it to DHCP?

Thanks for the quick reply!

Yes, DHCP is selected. 

BTW, S/N is 3648, F.W. is 4.27 and H.W. is 003.

It seems strange to me that there is no ethernet activity shown by the LED.

I guess Mike will have to get back to you on this one.

You may wish to try a different ethernet cable in the meantime.

Tried two different ethernet cables; no joy.

Problem resolved.  The 12 VDC/1A power plug was defective. 

It is deceiving that Microbit Setup app works properly via the USB connection even when there is no 12 VDC power applied to the device. The green LED pulsates and Setup programs the device correctly. That is, power is provided from the USB.

Subsequently when 12 VDC is applied, and an ethernet connection is made, the yellow LED adjacent to the ethernet connector will light and the device works as expected.
