What will happen to the E5810A LAN/GPIB Gateway (with firmware revision A.01.05) when it is powered ON for 5 minutes without a LAN connection?
When the E5810A (with firmware revision A.01.05) is powered ON for 5 minutes without a LAN connection, a static IP will automatically be assigned to the device, thus preventing connections to be made to any instrument. When this occurs, you will have to reset the device. To reset, power OFF and power ON the device again. After resetting, you should connect the device to a LAN connection within 5 minutes to avoid the above occurrence.
