Redo AREDN Firmware to hAP

I tried to install AREDN on a MikroTik hAP.  Something went wrong at/after the press reset, add power, open  pxeserver and press online.  Opening the browser to 192.168.1.1 did not work/doesn ont send data.  How can I start over?
Thanks in advance.

Cable?

Did you move the cable from your computer over to port 2,3,or 4?  After first installation, that's what needs to be done to talk to the hAP.

Orv,

Orv,
This is what I see:

I have not reached the point to move the cable.  Is "11:45:49 AM DHCPc:no other DHCPd discovered" the issue?
Thanks for your help.

hAP

Steve...

I used the instructions below..   

https://www.arednmesh.org/sites/default/files/AREDN%20Mikrotik%20Install...

slides 16 and 17 say to open the pxeserver and configure it...  slide 18 states press reset/add power to the hAP        you say you powered on the hAP and then opened the pxeserver

I have followed correctly followed the instructions several times.

The link that KO0OOO linked

The link that KO0OOO linked is the instructions I use.  I have used those instructions on a bunch of Mikrotik nodes and it has worked every time - as long as you follow the directions.  Specifically DO include a dumb switch between your PC and the hAP - that BTW is for the benefit of the PC, not the hAP.

K6CCC,

K6CCC,
Thanks for your reply.
I used the LAN ports on an old router.
This is the result:

Is this the issue?

router

Steve,

on that old routers setup, did you uncheck the 'DHCP' option so it became a dumb switch?

Richard beat me to it.  Make

Richard beat me to it.  Make sure the old router is not trying to function as a DHCP server.

Orv, Richard, and K6CCC,
The change in slide 16 was already in the file when I downloaded it.  I followed the steps in slides 17 & 18. I did turn off DHCP in the old router.
Thanks,

switch

Steve,
I don't use a switch but connect my computer directly to the Mikrotik device I'm flashing...      try it that way, then compare the pxeserver status window with your previous attempts.

oh..   clear your computers history first...

THANKS

All, 
Thanks for your time and expertise.  I was able to figure things out and overcome some pilot error.  The node is up and running.
