Hello! New to this forum. Had a short in the controller cable to CNC I soldered it back to working condition have all functions, will home, xyz axis move.....so on.....but have no connection to host...can not get the job server to ping. Can anyone help?
Thanks for the reply...I tried plug and unplug.......well no light or lights when unplugged and a blinking green light when rj45 is plugged in...what now? Thanks Brian
When I go through the machine setup it will not detect my machine...?
You know if the ethernet comms have failed, and you are in a pickle you can always switch to serial communication, provided this machine has a m24/k520 or older. It would be cheaper to repair the board if you have the time for the machine to be down, oh and xjdubber the replacement cost for one of those board has gone up to approx 4000-4500....they are phasing out the M24.
4000~5000 now eh, I guess we should clarify here, is it a m24 board you have or m2521
I too ran into issues with a Multicam44 my solution was to go to a UBOB 3 system and Mach3, Multicam has not been at all helpful, I bought my machine used and didn't have a copy of DNC so i called Multicam and was referred to a local distributor they wouldn't send a copy of the DNC files with out a costly "service agreement" and wanted to sell me an upgraded board for around 6K You have got to be kidding! far superior controllers can be had for lots less with great support, as for the Multicam machine mechanically a great product. nice and solid, but the lack of support means ill never refer anyone to this company again. I wont be surprised when Multicam joins those companies that just didn't make it and blames "foreign competition" for their failure. when its their lack of support and unreasonably high prices that leads to their demise.

Do you have experience with the M2521 board? or do you just say this cause you think other controllers are far superior?
