Have had it for about a week now. It is working out really well. I put linux on an old pc to use as a media server (among other things). It sits in the garage with no keyboard or monitor and I use the wiznet board hooked up to the serial port so I can watch the boot process and have a backdoor means of logging. This is an excellent product - the documentation needs to be better though.
Never mind. I figured out the trick - which I wish wiznet would highlight in their user manual. Connect the serial port to a terminal and cycle the power on the board - you will see whatever default settings were left in it at the factory, including mac address and IP address. Then do a direct search using the IP address. Direct attaching the pc ethernet (with the address set static to something on the same subnet as the default that came up) is a good idea too.
I can’t get the config tool to find the board (win 7, version 3.0.2, firewall off). I initially tried through an ethernet hub and then direct connected to the ethernet port on the pc with a static address assigned to the PC port. I ran wireshark and see network activity when the board powers up, but nothing particularly helpful. Is there some trick to getting the config tool to find the board?
No public wish lists :(
