Re: Failed to register IP address error

Ok, I give up on trying to improve Flash Magic with this special bug.
A workaround is to wait for like 1 minute or so, then the zero MAC entry will vanish and FM tries to connect normaly. Or another workaround is to increment the temporary IP address each time before a new connect attempt.

Thanks Tom

We implemented your suggestions  (e.g. item 'b' above) and they didn't help unfortunately. We don't have other users reporting this problem so it is difficult to see how to proceed.

I think the correct solution would be for you to add IP address support to the bootloader avoiding the need to alter the ARP table. If you did that we would alter Flash Magic to make the MAC address input optional so you could use it.
