I need to recover an IPG100, but I cannot connect to it with N2KAnalyzer. What should I do?


This image below is an IPG100 that requires this recovery procedure.

This IPG100 is not visible on the the device list within N2KAnalyzer.





To recover an amber lit IPG100 gateway perform the following routine:

 

 

Unzip the desired zip file to perform a desired operation on the IPG100( file located within the attachment category to this article) "IPG100_RCV.zip" into a file folder of a USB storage drive.

Two types of zip file are available:


- A full format and recovery file (recommended for IPG100s that power up to a RED NMEA2000 light on the device.)

- A reset factory Default file( recommended for IPG100s that are not discoverable via Ethernet connections)


The unzipped folder must be labeled “IPG100_RCV” and reside within the root directory of the USB storage device.


 

Perform the following operation:


Power off the IPG100 by removing N2KPower connection.

Plug the UFD/USB storage into the  IPG100 USB port

Reset or power cycle IPG100 by unplug and plug NMEA2000 connector.

The process is completed after the IPG100 is  restarted and red LED is turned OFF (the flashing process may take about 3 minutes for full recovery 45 seconds for device reset) you will know the process is complete

when the NMEA2000 light is an active Green state.



Remove UFD/USB from IPG100 USB port

Insert N2KView license key.



Note:  within this articles attachment category are two separate *.*Zip files for use.

- IPG100_RCV_Recovery.zip ( complete format and recovery files for version 3.6.0) Zip will expire 3-1-2014

- IPG100_RCV_4.0.zip ( complete format and recovery files for version 4.0.0.6)- current revision ideal for N2KView 4.0 and higher.
