rovio MAC address - resetting SetMac.cgi API correction

tobyb's picture

A correction to the Rovio API 1.3.

The API documentation says:

http://<IP address>/SetMac.cgi?MAC=

The correct command is:

http://<IP address>/SetMac.cgi?mac=AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF

... for your MAC and IP address. The former will set you MAC address randomly to some function of the supplied MAC like 00:00:00:00:80:AF

I know resetting the MAC is not a good idea generally but if you have to .. then this how.

rovio will not connect after firmware v.5.03 update

RichardP's picture

I am using XP and had downloaded and installed Rivio Siftware Installer v.2.3 from the page.

Before I saw a page to run my Rovio, it told me to install the firmware.  From the same page I downloaded and installed the firmware.  But since then it will not connect to my Rovio and the kittle on/off light does not lite up.

Is there a way un do the installs and start over.  My network is fine.  All so the lights around Rovio light up fine.

Any suggestions?
