cRIO problems

The cRIO imaging tools says No cRIO devices found, recheck network connection. We have the ethernet cord directly from the classmate pc to the cRIO. The power is working properly on the robot, but it has the status flashing orange. We have the IP configed at and it doesnt work.

If you have wireless on on the laptop turn it off. Sometimes the imaging software gets confused if you have more than one network adapter. Make sure its plugged into port 1. Use a straight cable, not crossover.

Which color wire is the straight cable? We have wire directly connected from the classmate to the cRIO, but it says local area connection unplugged and we have the wireless turned off and its plugged into port 1

got it working

Would you mind letting us know what the problem was? It might help someone else later who is having the same problems.
