1. The fallback IP address for the Kuro is 192.168.11.150. If your computer is not on the same subnet (first three numbers don't match) you will not be able to communicate with your kuro. If only the first 2 numbers match change the subnet mask on your computer to 255.255.0.0. If only the first number matches change the subnet mask to 255.0.0.0. Be sure to change your subnet mask back to its original setting after you have setup your Kuro.

Read the instructions that came with your Kuro. They are also available here

Help, I can't ping or login to my new Kuro Box. The power light is on. The link light is on. The other lights are off.

1. The fallback IP address for the Kuro Box is 192.168.11.150. If your computer is not on the same subnet (first three numbers don't match) you will not be able to communicate with your Kuro Box. If only the first 2 numbers match change the subnet mask on your computer to 255.255.0.0. If only the first number matches change the subnet mask to 255.0.0.0. Be sure to change your subnet mask back to its original setting after you have setup your Kuro Box.

2. If all else fails, connect the Kuro Box directly to your computer. Change the IP address of your computer to 192.168.11.149 and change your subnet mask to 255.255.255.0. You should now be able to telnet directly into your Kuro Box at 192.168.11.150 and install your system.
