I have my 7i97 now. I still am having trouble figuring out my first steps. I have ,y 5v hooked up to the board and ethernet ran from it to the computer but I cant exactly figure out my next move. I read through manual and tried to do some things like mesaflash to set up connection but I cant seem to get it right. I hate being so new to all this. Like the idea of having to type things into the terminal to get somewhere and all the codes is just so foreign to me. Its frustrating but thats why I am here writing this to keep trying to chip away at it. I

You do not need mesaflash at all.

The first step is to setup you host PC with a static IP address
I suggest using 10.10.10.100 for the host PC address and
setting the 7I97 card to 10.10.10.10 (W16 down W17 UP)

How to set the IP address varies but normally you can do this via
the network manager GUI (edit connections) or by editing the interfaces file.

I tried to do as you said last night but could'nt exactly get it done. I tried several things but never could get to my network manager and I'm not sure what editing interface files even consist of honestly. Not to be too much trouble but is there any way you could show me what it looks like when you do it through terminal? Also do i need to move either pin on W5 or W6 to set it to EEPROM like is needed?

Normally the network manager is launched by clicking a permanent desktop icon
not sure what the default icon is for this on the current Debian LinuxCNC distribution
but you can launch network managers connection editor from the command
line with "nm-connection-editor"

As far as editing the interfaces file goes, this is described in the hm2_eth manual page
For a more thorough description of the interfaces file you could google "linux interfaces file"

Ok, i have come to the conclusion that I have done something wrong to where i dont have or cant use network manager. I got something when I first got linux on this computer so I was able to use wifi. i kinda wonder if when I did that I changed something I wasnt supposed to. Also everythning I do says permission denied like im not the root user. I even try sudo with it but keep hitting dead ends. When I right click one my connections for ethernet and wifi I can choose something that says edit connections but i select it and nothing ever happens after that

What happens when you type

nm-connection-editor

in a terminal?

What Linux version (not LinuxCNC) ?
The official install ISO is using WiCD for network management, i think.
Unfortunately i avoid using WiCD, so can not help, but this might:

That's odd, I thought the latest LinuxCNC ISO had Network manager rather than the (very broken) wicd
