[title] Static IP Address
[* black] This is where things start getting exciting! We're now going to try connecting to the ROV for the first time.
[* icon_note] For version 2.7 ROVs, the on-board software is already installed on the BeagleBone computer. In previous versions, you would have needed to write the newest software image onto an SD card that would go into the BeagleBone, but in this case, your ROV should have everything it needs already installed onto its built in "eMMC" memory.
[* black] The ROV has a built in static IP address of 192.168.254.1, so to connect with it, your computer should have a similar address but with the last number set to something other then 1. "192.168.254.2" for instance would work great. The subnet mask should be set to 255.255.255.0.
[* black] '''Windows Vista:''' go to control panel -> network and sharing center -> click on "manage network connections" on the left-hand bar. Then r-click on "local area network" -> l-click on properties -> l-click on "Internet Protocol Version 4" -> l-click on "properties" and select the option "use the following ip address" and enter in 192.168.254.*
