Does anyone known how to get the reference design working on Windows 7. It works fine under Windows XP, but in Windows 7 is seems that the communication through Ethernet is not working properly. The GUI says: Not connected to FPGA.
- I switched off firewalls -> no effect
- I switched off ipV6 support -> an ip address appreas in Setup -> Network Interface instead of 0.0.0.0, but still no connection to FPGA
- I monitored network traffic with WireShark but could not find any packets coming from the Reference Design Application.

Greetings. I just solved the "not connected to FPGA" problem on Vista. Coicidently, I also used WireShark and I saw a bunch of Windows service traffic, which I thought will confuse the board. After disabling client, QoS, ipv6, file print sharing, discovery for that link, I finally see the convolved image. Maybe you can try that. The safest thing to do is to disable everything except ipv4.
One thing to look for on the board before connecting ethernet is a blinking RX led every second.
Hope that helps

I made it run by setting ethernet mac Address to 00:50:C2:AE:40:00
// MAC addressesparameter SERVER_MAC = 48'h00_50_C2_AE_40_00;
parameter MY_MAC = 48'h00_50_C2_AE_40_01;

There is an official answer to this problem under Vista: AR #33229.
I have tried to follow it under windows 7 but can not get it working.
I have an application running on the sp601 that sends UDP messages. It seems to send, according to the debugger, but I can not see anything with wireshark on windows 7. If I connect the LAN port to another computer that runs XP it works!

Please see AR#40705 (http://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/40705.htm)
This GUI is not supported on Windows 7, and the recommendation is to continue to use Windows XP OS for the BRD GUI
