I have a cable modem that supplies my internet connect. It has 4 ethernet ports on it. When I plug my WIZ550io into one of the ethernet ports, I am unable to see or ping the WIZNET5500. My PC is also plugged into one of the ports and works fine.
The WIZ550io module is working fine and I am able to reset the chip, read the version number and read the default IP of 192.168.1.2. so the chip appears to be functioning properly. I had this same arrangement working on another cable modem just two days ago, but unfortunately that modem is in another state 1000 miles away for me to try it again.
I’ve tried using a crossover cable, and a separate router with no success. When I do a netstat -a -o -n in the Windows 7 cmd window I can’t see the IP.
I am stuck on how to proceed. Any ideas???
