    How do i find the ip address of my dreambox?

    Hi there , just received my dreambox 500c today and I am trying to flash it using FlashWizard PRO using the DW image.

    Go into your MENU, select SETUP, Expert SETUP, Communication SETUP, once in here you can either use DHCP or set your own manual IP.

    thanks for that
    ive got all the information and entered the ip address in flash wizard pro
    however when i try to flash it it still says:

    "unable to connect to : 192.168.x.x
    please check connection parameters"

    (where my x's are numbers in my ip address)

    anybody have any ideas?


    also can i use the null modem insted to flash the image if the above does not work? if so what would i use?

    using the serial port with a null modem (cross over) cable, set the port in DREAMUP to the com port.

    I haven't done a dreambox flash this way in a long time, but from memory, after setting up your serial cable, power off the dreambox (a/c off not just the power button) then hold down the power button (refer to the manual for exact details) and then reconnect the a/c or adaptor as the machine performs a POST and it is programmed to look for a connection first on the serial port. If it detects a handshake it will start talking directly to the PC and dreamup will reflash the box.
