I recently bough a pair of M50Q DSP+Eth amps. I'm trying to program them with Armonia Pro, but can't seem to make connection to either amp. I know that my Ethernet connector works on my laptop, as it works fine with my iLive board. I've read the Online Help documentation also tried downloading the Lantronix DeviceInstaller, but it also can't see the amps. What's next?

Hello Mark,
you didn't mention what kind of connection you are using: auto DHCP? static? do you have a router with DHCP enabled?
also, in Armonia, which connection do you see working when you go in the general Option > Communication manager?
Thanks for the info.

Hi Gianni
I'm using a static IP address on my PC computer ( I'm running a Cat 5e cable from the Ethernet port of my laptop to the Ethernet port of the M50Q. In the Communications Manager I can see my Wi-Fi Adaptor and Ethernet Port as active, but no Powersoft amps. Is there a way for me to access the IP addresses of the amp?

-thanks, Mark

Hi Mark,
amplifiers are shipping in auto ip mode by default.
pls check if you can see them with the pc in dynamic ip mode and a straight connection (no router, dhcp, switch etc)
After that you can set the amps in static ip (same subnet of the computer)

Hi Luigi:

I changed my Ethernet settings to dynamic DHCP and everything is now talking to each other! I reset the amp's IP address to be compatible with my gear. Now all I have to do is learn to use the program.

Thanks for all you help-Mark

please be sure that in Armonia main manu, under communication manager tab, you see the SAME IP family to which your amp is subscribed as in static IP mode.

Secondly,please provide us the IP that Armonia is showing in communication manager, the amp IP and please try to connect the amp directly (eventually using your switch or router as long as they are set correctly)

Good morning,

The IP in the Lantronix is

The IP of the PC/Laptop is

Under options in Armonia is the correct Interface chosen.

Already tried a direct connectio to the Amp and through Switch/Router.

Is it possible that something is wrong on the LANTRONIX? I have made for testing on the Lantronix a factory reset to defaults.

Could it be that a software on your pc (maybe an antivirus or firewall) is blocking the communication?
Can you try with a different pc please?

Hi Tackle:

With my M50Q DSP+Eth amps, they were shipped with the IP address: 169.254.0.__. The way I made connection was to switch my computer to a compatible IP address (169.254.0.__) and then I could access the IP addresses on the amps. I changed the amps IP addresses to 192.168.1.__ to be compatible with my network, then switched my computers address back to its original 192.168.1.__ address, and now everything works. Try doing this and see if it works for you.

Thanks a lot for contributing Mark,
amps are shipping in dhcp/auto ip mode.
With that setting if the computer is in automatic ip mode too, it should see the devices without any additional settings; pc and amps will take by themselves an ip in the range. This is not a static ip, it's an ip self assigned by the devices themselves.
If the computer is in static ip mode, the amp has to be in a static (or dhcp assigned) ip matching the pc subnet.

Sometimes it might happen that the amp is in static ip and you forget witch one it is, in that case a software from lantronix can be used to discover the amps and reset the device in auto/dhcp mode: ... 1494492024
