I know this is a recurring topic, I am following past advice meticulously as far as I can tell. I removed my MacBook from my home network, set a static IP address and have my new CPE210 plugged in to it using ethernet (through an adapter for macbooks). I can see the antenna (using the app IPScanner Pro) at IP address ...254. So that's good, she's alive and kicking.
Cannot ping her when she is connected to the macbook via ethernet, or when I connect her directly in to the network via ethernet. I have done two factory resets, after each still visible on IP Scanner Pro... IP Scanner Pro has the ability to ping devices, and I get back an error "no route to host".
Help! Thank you!!! Be gentle with me I'm feel like I'm out of my element... but so close to success.
