Module W5500 not able to connect as server

Hi,
I want to implement Modbus-TCP using the W5500 ethernet module and a Mega2560 Pro embed. Since I am learning how to use the module first I tried to run the WebServer example on the Ethernet2 library and I keep getting "server is at 255.255.255.255" on the serial monitor. I know the error isn't a loose cable because I have to push them so I don't get "server is at 0.0.0.0"
I connected pins 50-MISO;51-MOSI;52-SCLK;53-SCS. I read on other forums that they also connect RST on both. Is that also ok?

/*
  Web Server

 A simple web server that shows the value of the analog input pins.
 using an Arduino Wiznet Ethernet shield.

 Circuit:
 * Ethernet shield attached to pins 10, 11, 12, 13
 * Analog inputs attached to pins A0 through A5 (optional)

I can't ping the device either. 192.168.100.190 is my computer's IP.

what W5500 module is it. how do you power it?

It's the one in the pictures. You can power it either with 5V or 3.3V. I was powering it with 5V from the Arduino board.

try Ethernet.init(53); before Ethernet.begin

IT WORKED! Thank you so much!
Would you mind explaining what the problem was so I can troubleshoot myself in the future?

defualt CS pin in Ethernet library is pin 10 for Ethernet shield. other pin can be set with init
