I just put 2.9.51 on a WRAP board and used hyperterminal to configure the IP on ether1 and then logged in to configure the rest. But in winbox nothing is popping up in the connect to ... box. Is there something I need to enable in order for this device to be "discoverable"?
you shouldndt need to do anything, winbox has teh ability to connect via mac, so it should be indifferent of an ip address on it. try connecting to the board directly and bypass any routers (Switch is OK).
