I've been having issues with my 5Xc. I was able to connect and upgraded the firmware yesterday to the latest stable master-firmware release. I had some issues and read the troubleshooting guide about the 1 & 4 light being on meant a config issue, so I replaced the config with the 3D printing default config. It booted up and I was able to connect and confirm "version" via serial connection using Univ. Gcode Sender java app.
I soldered the network plug (ordered from uberclock) and it seemed to work as well after I enabled networking and rebooted it obtained a new ip. I was able to see the pronterface looking UI on the webpage of the new ip. I was also able to telnet to it.
However… now I can't get any of it to work. And lights 1 and 4 on steady but 2/3 are blinking which, if I understand it correctly, means everything is ok?
The network plug is showing an amber link light and blinking green activity and I confirmed via my router it does obtain the IP address. I just cannot connect to the board via web browser, telnet, or even serial over usb directly.
I would like to blame my soldering job on the network plug but I just redid what looked like only two possible cold joints. And light I said both network plug lights are working as expected.
My system: Windows 8 x64 and I have installed Arduino drivers (unsigned) as well as the official signed Smoothie drivers for windows 8 x64. I don't think this is a communication problem between Win8 and Smoothieboard, as I can connect to my Arduino Uno and DigiStump Pro just fine.
What else could be the problem? Or is it just a bad unit that I need to get replaced/rma'd?
