theres a topic at the bottom of this forum discussing my problem . i think it somewhat is the same issue im having.
heres the deal. i just bought my first itech8000. got it in from ups. it was an it8k that was recertified and tested and boxed by crown and resold used to me. wiped clean and reloaded with the latest firmware. got a *beep* of a deal. looks great.
im having trouble getting it to connect to the system architect. is my answer plain and simple? YOU CANNOT CONNECT AN ITECH DIRECTLY INTO THE NETWORK/FILE SHARING PORT OF A PC WITHOUT HAVING A CROSSOVER CABLE, OR A NETWORK ROUTING DEVICE!!???? if thats the answer, then whew! saved me from alot of trouble. when i get home from my gig tonight, i will try it out with a router i have laying around. thx.
but if thats not the issue, then what could it be? system architect is not recognizing a lan network. it only finds my wireless internet router in my folks closest. so i turn off my wireless to avoid conflict. ive also disabled any firewall virus protection on my pc that could be blocking any communication between anything.
the itech screen clearly so far looks like its working properly. no crazy fan problems, nothing getting hot. crown so far looks like they did an awsome job benching this amp and testing everything before boxing it up and sending it back out.
any advice, please feel free to give.
thanks in advance,
