no connection with the computer

We made a 85 step. On the controller board ligts led 1 PWR green; led 7 HP ; led 6 TPWR; led 8 ETH - no light; led 2 blinking red. On the BeagleBone Black there is no ligts (even in the Ethernet jumper).On Topside Adapter -home plug, ethetnet connect and power - all ligts. Where is the error? WE try to connect with computer but with no results.

did you go into the control panel and look at add a new device...the first linein the box that pops up will ask for the IP 192.168.254.1

Update (02/11/2016)

Be sure you use the correct IP

192.168.254.1 (This is to add the address to the ethernet setup found in the control panel.

At this point you should double check to make sure the ip is correct. This IP address is to let Windows know a new ethernet device is on the computer and here is it's address.The next empty box is for the subnet IP. Put 255.255.255.0 The software is already in the beaglebone....using whatever browser you have on your computer,when you enter the ip for the browser( the IP will end in one).(192.168.254.1) This ip was installed at beaglebone That is the beaglebone's built in IP be sure you put in the correct number. Since the input boxes are empty for you to put the IP for the address you are going to install, You can install the IP for windows. It is the address that you can put in the box for the IP but the IP is blank so put in the number but use "2" rather than "1" You are doing this to give the IP some space from the base IP which ends in one. Changing the IP to end in 2 is usually done to keep the IP address seperate from one number So we put in 192.168.254.2

For the browser, the IP is treated like a normal address. So assuming you have Chrome (suggested to use) Put the ip address on the address line of the browser. The address would be correct if that ends in two. The address for the ROV is 192.168.254.2:8080 You could use a "1" and probably still get on. But if you used a two when you put in the address in setup, use two rather than a one.It will get the cockpit screen and from there you can start setup for the ROV using "Cockpit" You should have an image on the screen of whatever the camera is pointed at. Your'e ready to calibrate the ESC's...

I went through all the steps but I keep getting a "This site can’t be reached 192.168.254.2 took too long to respond." error message. All thee lights in the ROV are lit and the headlights are flashing on and off.
