the laptop I use comes up with an unidentified network for the arduino
the browser cant establish a connection.
I've tried flushing the stack
The network manager had an unidentified network when i plugged the arduino in. However, this is a school laptop and I am not sure what was done with it before this year. Can't provide a solid answer on that front sorry.I have tried connecting the arduino directly into the laptops ethernet port, and after reading a few posts on this forum I tried using a router which was unable to be setup. My DLink dir-655 installation disc got to the part where you turn it on after plugging the etherenet cable into the port. The router setup didnt stop responding, but was hanging while trying to find the routerThe flushing was another suggestion on a windows forum for unidentified networks. The response was to flush the TCP/IP stack and I followed the steps to do that, this came up with no change in behavior. A little more that I forgot was that I was only assigning the MAC address to the board, because I wasn't sure what our school network settings were and I don't need this to access websites, just recieve requests across the ethernet cable.
