KUKA iiwa network messed up

  • Hey guys,

    I have a Kuka IIWA 14 R820 with a Sunrise Cabinet cotroller, KSS 8.3.

    The robot was working fine with the kuka windows interface, but (before I arrived), the network configuration was messed up when trying to run it with ROS following this tutorial.

    ("probably" the problem started when trying to update the Intel 82574L network adapter by using "Search automatically for updated driver software" instead of the driver at kuka\hardware\drivers\...)

    Now I cannot ping the robot's IP through the KLI port, the Controller does not find neither the robot nor the smartPAD, and one of the network adapters is with a yellow sign over it due to "error code 31: Windows cannot load the drivers..."

    I have already tried to uninstall and reinstall the drivers, but that doesn't change anything.

    any idea how to solve this (possibly driver) problem?

    or is it possible to restore the cabinet to the default configuration? (and do I need that KUKA recovery usb stick for this?)

    any help is welcomed!

    Thank you
