Make sure the network interface is configured properly
By default, macOS self-assigns a link-local IP address to any adapter that does not receive a DHCP-provided IP address. To ensure your computer can access the wired robot, confirm that the adapter interface is configured with its default settings, which should look something like this:
The robot’s adapter will appear in the “Network” panel of “System Preferences” as something like “USB 10/100 LAN”
- “Configure IPv4” must be set to its default value of “Using DHCP”
- “IP Address” should have been populated with something in the `169.254` range
- “Subnet Mask” should be “255.255.0.0”
If for some reason the IP address isn’t self-assigning to link-local, you can manually refresh the IP:
- Click “Advanced”
- In the “TCP/IP” tab, click “Renew DHCP Lease”
- Click OK
Note: If all else fails, restarting your computer can often help.
