I am just getting started with the NP2, and after several successful "blink-the-LED" efforts I switched to try the PWM functions, and started getting compile warnings (overflow will not throw exception), I was unable to reprogram the device.
I tried the deployment tool, and find that while I can ping the device and get back the following:
Pinging... IP Address: 0.0.0.0

After I get this, if I re-ping, there is no response. Also, if I disconnect and reconnect (unplug/plug) I get the same response. Please note it always fails to complete the line: "Assembly: SecretLabs.NETMF.Diagnosti" and I do not know if there should be more lines.
I am not sure what I should do next. Perhaps erase the device and reload? If so, is there a procedure with locations of the necessary files specified?
