Setup: 6300 and SmartSDR PC are hard-wired to same access point on the LAN. Following sequence is always followed to get radio to connect to SmartSDR.
1. SmartSDR can be started either before or after start of radio. Events in 2. below are not affected.
2. Radio is started and indicates as "available" on SmartSDR “Radio Startup” screen left-hand window. Selecting Radio tab always indicates radio’s IP address is 169.254.7.35 which will not connect in the LAN where all addresses are in the range 192.168.XX.XX. Pressing CONNECT at this point fails. Stopping the radio and restarting always returns a suitable address assigned by the DHCP server in the correct 192.168.XX.XX range.
3. Why does SmartSDR even show the Radio as "available" when the Radio tab always shows it to be out of range on the first start of the Radio?
4. Seems like very strange behavior. No other device on the LAN has trouble getting an address from the DHCP server. Network reports as "excellent" in SmartSDR - no noise.
Thoughts? Do I need to gut my network components and start over?
