Then

mesaflash --device 7i92t --addr 10.10.10.10 --readhmid

should work

As should:

mesaflash --device ethernet --addr 10.10.10.10 --readhmid

if

mesaflash --device 7i92t --addr 10.10.10.10 --readhmid

Does not work, that suggests you have an old copy of mesaflash
Did you install the latest version? (sudo make install)

That usually means either LInuxCNC is running or LinuxCNC was not shut down properly

(LinuxCNC blocks access to its Ethernet interface when running and this block remains
if LinuxCNC exits ungracefully)

You might tray again after entering:

halrun -U
