DHCP server speed and network ID

Question asked by Sean Dowell on Apr 21, 2014

I'm using MQX 4.0.2 on a Kinetis K60 with the DHCP server running so I can connect a PC directly via Ethernet and then access web pages hosted by the MQX web server. This all works but when I connect my Ethernet cable to my windows 7 PC it seems to take a while (30 or more seconds) to get an IP address and get to the point where I can put in the IP assigned to the K60 Ethernet port and load the web pages. It does not take nearly as long (2 or 3 seconds) to do this when I connect to a router or any other networking equipment. Is there anything I can do on the MQX side to speed up this process?

 

Also is there a way to get a network name to appear? Usually when I connect to a network I'll at least get a name like "Network 1". When connected to the ethernet port on the K60 my PC just says "Unidentified network" even after and IP is assigned.No Net Name.JPG.jpg

 

Thanks,

Sean
