newbie-can't find devices cfp-1804

Hi all!

Here is my problem, other than being a complete newbie to all of this, I have established an ethernet connection to my cfp-1804 but when i click on "find devices," I get an error saying "Unable to connect to the data item on the module.  Possible causes: (1) A connection is broken, or (2) the network module is not powered on."  Now, it says it is connected and running so i am confused on where to go from here.  When I setup the connection, I chose "suggest values".   Should I have chose somthing else?  Thanks for any help!

stuff I'm using...
labview 8
crossover cable connected directly to my PC

nevermind, ip my configuration was wrong.  I disabled my wireless card and did "suggest values" for the ip configuration.  now i can see all of my IO devices.

Hi taniarox,

Glad you were able to figure out the problem.  Getting the cFP networked, and setup always seems to be half the battle.
