Hi All

I’ve just been dealing with this unit, and thought I’d share the solution in case anyone else ever experiences a slow boot with static IP address allocation.

The GLD defaults are:

I/P 192.168.1.50
Mask 255.255.255.0
Gateway 192.168.1.254

This unit had its gateway set to:

192.168.1.255

This isn’t a valid gateway address ( .0 and .255 are reserved ). If either the netmask or gateway are invalid or not compatible with the chosen I/P address, you may experience the slow boot issue.

A brief and slightly dry tutorial is here:

By re-entering the defaults above, normal operation should resume.

We’re also looking into providing a reset button to avoid this issue in future.

Cheers
