Can't Communicate with other controllers( resolved )

I have six new controllers (LOR160xW) and have given ID 01, 02, etc. I have ran the hardware utility.
It locates and communicates with the 01 controller, but can't locate any of the other 5.
All units are daisy chained, from 01 thru 06 in order. I am using cat 5 cables. I have checked them all and all are working fine. (Have used other cables just to verify) Verified all in and outs are correct, etc. Pulling my hair out, any suggestions?

A quick verify here, do you have a high enough number listed in the hardware utility when searching network?

Also, did you try replacing the second cable for another to verify the cable is good?

Are all the lights solid?

These are a few quick ones to start, We'll get you fixed here!

Strictly using new cat 5 cable, which I verified using on a separate network, as good. Also used other additional cables. Even tried max amount of controllers setting.
Getting power to units Ok. Solid light first controller, blinking all others.

Just tried it with 01 disconnected and connected to 02 etc, located 02 fine and other 4.
Will check to see what is up with 01. thanks for your suggestions.

The culprit was the first controller (01). The out data connecter was loose and came loose from the main board. Resovled the issue by putting that unit (01) in the last of the daisy chain.
After holidays will see if it can be replaced or repaired.
