For reasons irrelevant to this issue I recently updated the bootloader and firmware on an installed m1xep ethernet adapter. After updating and rebooting I was able to access the m1 with rp. After making some configuration changes to the xep and rebooting, rp no longer connected. I discovered at this point that the xep ip address had changed to the default. Changed PC ip to same subnet and reconfigured the xep ip address (static). Now the xep won’t save the new data. I then used the JP2 to reconfigure the xep to use dhcp. The xep would not get a lease from my dhcp server. Yes, the dhcp server is up and operational, some 20 devices use it daily.
At this point I go the update firmware function and try to rerun the installation. Now that errors with “version cannot be upgraded”, “bootloader software version erased”.
Is there anyway to recover from this? Did I just flush $300?
Any help is appreciated,
