HELP!

I plugged in the 1602 and the red light started blinking. But at soon as I plug in the CAT5 cable the light goes out and the hardware utility says there is a comm3 error. Any suggestions?


Edit: Error 8012 is coming up.

I have an ethernet port on my laptop I am using. I did notice that if I uplug the cord for the computer and leave it plugged into the unit, the light starts blinking again. I am going to transfer my files to my older PC and try to serial adapter. I don't have a serial port on my laptop.

Unless you have other suggestions. Thanks for the quick reply.

You can't use the on-board ethernet port on your computer to control the lights. You must use one of the LOR adaptors. (Serial / USB->Serial / USB)
