Network Troubleshooting via techmenu

If the CUBE is physically connected properly, but is not showing connecting in the interface, you can connect a VGA monitor and USB keyboard to the CUBE to troubleshoot.

You can also use this method to manually set an IP address, gateway, and DNS information. 

  1. Connect a VGA screen to the VGA connection, and attach a USB keyboard to any USB port.
  2. Once you have a screen and keyboard attached to the CUBE, go ahead and power up the CUBE. After the boot up messages show on screen, the screen will go dark. 
  3. Press "Tab" key, then type "techmenu" (you will not see the characters as you type). 
  4. This will bring up the Techmenu where you can do a network check (make sure you have a network cable connected and connected to your network) This will verify that the unit is working properly. 

Here is a link to the detailed Techmenu instructions:
