Issues Connecting Laptop to ROV

Currently near the end of the ROV assembly, but when it came time to turn on the ROV, I am unable to connect to Cockpit. When I connect the ROV to my laptop, it initially powers on, I am not able to connect to it. The Power light lights up Green, the Homeplug Connect and Ethernet Connect lights light up orange, and the ROV lights up and makes a series of beeps. But before long, the homeplug light goes out, the ROV headlights begin periodically flashing, and at no point am I able to access cockpit . When I attempt to ping the ROV at, it always times out. I have raised a support ticket, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to post the question here in case someone else experienced the same issue and found a solution.

Edit: Additionally, when I unplug the USB from the Laptop, a number of the lights on the ROV stay on. Also ran a windows diagnostic to test the connection to and it gave the response: "Your computer appears to be correctly configured, but the device or resource ( is not responding"

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Did you ever get this worked out? When I typically have these problems it’s because I didn’t change my computer network settings.

I use a mac, and have a location set up specifically for “OpenROV Expedition” which focuses on the thunderbolt connection. Just last weekend I was having a similar issue, and realized I had not hit the “apply” button to actually use it.
