I can vet for Genesis however as one of the few legit sites:

@IceKohl This is way off topic.
I'm not a network expert by any means, it's just that when using Linux and BSD one often has to write the subnet mask in various forms. Here's a simple calculator for specifying a network, http://jodies.de/ipcalc?host=192.168.0.1&mask1=18&mask2=
For instance, a /24 provides 254 hosts, a /16 gives 65534 hosts and a /8 a whole 16777214 hosts.
More uncommon values are /30 which only allow 2 ips.
Back on topic,
The best guess is that the miner in question is operating on a different subnet mask and can't find the router or dns. Changing the ip configuration of the miner would allow to specify the ip range of the miner, and direct it to the router/gateway on the network.
In order to connect to the miner initially, one would need to change the ip-settings of another computer to be able to connect to the miner, eg change the ip settings from 192.168.0.50 to 192.168.1.50, if we believe the miner is currently on the 192.168.1.X subnet.Please note the value of the second last numbers, they changed from 0 to 1.
If successfully connected to the miners gui settings, look around and change the ip to 192.168.0.50 or something, see if it picks up the change and can connect, otherwise restart the miner and you should be good to go. last step is to change back the ip settings of the computer and that's all there is to it
@IceKohl What you are writing is correct, most likely the miner is in a different subnet than the standard home network of 192.168.0.0/16
@xavier0510 try what @IceKohl wrote and see if you can find your miner. It's probably on 192.168.1.x or something like that. if you can't figure it out, nmap is the default ip scanning tool out there. Probably overkill if there are other more user friendly alternatives, but once you know the subnet, just change the ip in the miner settings to whatever your network uses.
@Administrator pretty much "fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me"
Those of us who took part in the Paycoin fraud should have learnt our lessons, otherwise it is shame on us.
I sold off all stakers and ION and anything related to the project a long time ago. I got fed up with the long wait for nothing, and buying skins for a staker wasn't really what i had hoped for the ION project.
This is not investment advice, although I would urge others to consider the value of ION and move on.
Being that these asics cost a great deal, are they generally fragile or tend to be broken easily? If the controller board breaks for no apparent reason, it sounds more to me as a poor manufacturing or simply a poor design? I have held Antminer in high regards earlier, but the amount of posts of broken asics make me question if they are as good as their reputation hold them?
@chrishaefner I have no experience whatsoever with these kind of asics, but here's a long shot: do you have proper connectivity? If the Ethernet connection is blinking red, that might be a networking problem?
Moved this thread to Mining
@CryptoMadeMan I seem to have made a mistake, please ignore my previous posts, I have edited them now and we may leave this thread as it is.
Sorry guys, I guess I misread and got mixed up. Leaving this thread here in the altcoin section!
