I have Pix 501 which I rest to factory default. After reset,  it stopped  responding to https://192.168.1.1. I tried connecting it using Hyper terminal, but no response. How do I make it work?
Thanks.

Do a complete poweroff

unplug cables and plug then back again

Check your connectivity whether cables are fixed properly

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

No, it is not under any contract. It is old. So you meant, there is no remedy?

well it may have just died I would see if you can open it up and reseat the memory modules ect and such but if you can't even get to ROMON then there is most likley a bigger problem.

Thanks
