Troubleshooting

1- The GigEViewer program will not recognize the cameras

After installing the GigEViewer and rebooting, it is possible that it will not immediately recognize the cameras. In that case, after making sure the Gigabit card, Ethernet Hub and cameras are connected and powered up, start the program GigEIPConfig (Start->All Programs->Prosilica->GigEIPConfig). After a couple of seconds, all the connected cameras should appear on the program's list. Now, click on the first camera and then click on the Change button. Select the Auto-IP option (the second one) and click OK. Do the same for the rest of the cameras. Now, restart the GigEViewer and the cameras should be recognized.
