Help, I can't ping or login to my new Kurobox. The power light is on. The link light is on. The other lights are off.
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.
2. If all else fails, plug your kuro directly into your computer (you will need a crossover cable for the standard Kuro). Change the ip address of your computer to 192.168.11.149 and change the subnet mask to 255.255.255.0. You should now be able to telnet to your Kuro at 192.168.11.150 and install your system.
