I have an FP1600 ethernet module directly connected to a laptop. The laptop has a static IP of 188.8.131.52. I have cycled power on the FP module multiple times. MAX does not pick up any device. What is the default IP address of the FP module? I know MAX uses UDP broadcasting to find devices, however this does not seem to be working.
Someone please help,

Are you using a crossover ethernet cable?
I've never used FP, but when I used cFP18xx, I belive that in the manual it stated the need for a crossover cable for a direct PC connection. You may want to review your manual.
The FP 1600 might have a different subnet configuration compared to your laptop. The best approach is to reset the 1600 module and reconfigure it using MAX. Follow the reset instructions from the manual below. Connect your 1600 module directly to the laptop by using a crossover cable or indirectly to a hub/switch by using a normal ethernet cable.
You may have to restart Max in order to see the device under remote devices with IP address 0.0.0.0.
Guess what? It is mentioned in the manual. The little red switch is hidden on the back of the module within the enclosure.
