Actually, if the power goes off and back on, the ethernet connection comes back online after about 5 seconds, or faster if it is disconnected and reconnected. The main issue was that the cable had partially slipped out (ie both power and network connections were loose); I suggest that the final setup should use ethernet cables that have a locking tab as this one does not. 


Lydia helped me to troubleshoot the Accromag connection problems which I was facing previously.  If power goes off/turned off manually, the ethernet cable has to be pulled out and put back again until only a non-blinking green light is observed. I was foolish enough that I did not use secure power connections. About the random symbol, a code block was not closed in the other supporting file which was being called in the main program. There are still some port errors and register errors, which I would work on later tonight.
