Tablo Won't Connect to Network (via Ethernet)

Once your Tablo is connected to your network it uses DHCP to get an IP address, Gateway address and DNS address from your router. If it is successful, the LED will stop its slow blink or LED pulse and become solid.

If the Tablo LED continues to blink slowly (once per second) and you cannot connect to it using the Tablo app, try the following steps:

  • Make sure the Ethernet port on your router is connected to your Tablo. The orange LED on the Tablo Ethernet port should be illuminated and the green LED should blink periodically.
  • Power cycle the Tablo.
  • Power cycle your router.
  • Make sure that DHCP is turned on in your router settings.
  • Check if other devices connected to your router are functional.
  • Try a different Ethernet Cable.

If this does not work, you can unplug the Ethernet connection, power cycle the Tablo and see if you can find the Tablo Wi-Fi network “Tablo_XXXX” in the list of Wi-Fi networks on your wireless device (e.g. iPad).

Tablo will switch to Wi-Fi mode if no Ethernet cable is connected. If you can see the Tablo Wi-Fi network, it would suggest that Tablo is operational and that the fault could be in your home network.
