Newbie having major issues

I have created a Sequence and can play it from my laptop.  

I purchased to controllers and the big Christmas tree.  I have setup the tree with all the lights.  However, when I start the sequence from my laptop the lights do not engage with the music.  The way I have the controllers setup is:

- Christmas Tree lights are plugged into Controller 1

- 50 ft Cat5 cable goes from the lap top into the middle port on the 1st controller

- Short Cat5 cable goes from  Controller 1 port 3 to Control 2 middle port.

What am I doing wrong or what step(s) have I missed?

Nothing wrong with your Network (assumes all the correct lights do happen)

How are you listening to the Audio?  (Modern digital receivers introduce delays. That varies from model to model. Ever wonder why the TV display at the big box sore does not have sound on... Yep! Processing Delay differences)

What do you mean by that statement?  Could mean different things - lights not synchronized with the music, lights not coming on at all, wrong lights coming oh, etc.

Which controllers and what Unit IDs are assigned to them?

And again we hope that the controllers are plugged into the USB-RS485 adapter and not straight to the Ethernet port of the computer.
