Hello Rob,

why do you answer my comment instead of his?

I also suggest testing the cables.

I've written this in my answer.

I had lots of issues with twinax. Pins getting pushed in, etc.

He stated to have no Twinax cables but using Balunsto 8P8/RJ45.

Some terminals only look like you can hook twinax directly into them. Instead you had to go to a T or Y connector which then hooked into the terminal. And sometimes, even then, you might have to put a terminator cap on the unused end. Some T or Y connectors are auto terminating.

I don't have too much experience but Twinax-Accessories from the mid 1990's and later seem to handl termination automatically. For short wires, termination *might* not even be necessary?

Also, did you set the address to 0 on the device?

He stated that he did.

I hate twinax. Been rid of it for decades.

I like it. Works more reliable than cheapernet. :-)

:wq! PoC
