I am trying to connect my Arduino to my MacBook over ethernet via a thunderbolt-ethernet dongle. However, I am unable to access my Arduino over Ethernet. The problem is very similar to one mentioned in https://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=475101.0 but for some reason, I am unable to debug it.

I have manually set up the Ethernet on Mac where IP address is 192.168.1.2 and Subnet Mask is 255.255.255.0. I tried accessing Arduino both - by disabling and enabling the WiFi - but it is not working. Please help.

Here is my Arduino code -

/*
  Web Server

 A simple web server that shows the value of the analog input pins.
 using an Arduino Wiznet Ethernet shield.

 Circuit:
 * Ethernet shield attached to pins 10, 11, 12, 13
 * Analog inputs attached to pins A0 through A5 (optional)

  • Have you used a cross-over cable? – Majenko Apr 30 '18 at 22:52
  • I just checked on the web about differences in straight and cross-over cables; it seems I am using a straight cable and cross-over cable is required for a computer to computer connection. I will update as soon as I find a cross-over cable. – Milan Jain Apr 30 '18 at 23:02
