Sam and I setup Cat6 cable from Megatron to the 1Y6 Switch (126.96.36.199) and also connected the 1Y6 Hub to the control room switch.
While I was at it, I checked the configurations of the two switchs now connected (one in 1X4 and one in 1Y6) to the martian network. For some reason, the 1X4 had switched to DHCP enabled and was using 188.8.131.52 as an IP address. I had thought I had setup it correctly initially, so am not sure what caused the change.
The easiest way I know of to check the setup is use smartwizard discovery program from the Netgear install CD (in the equipment manual file cabinet of the control room) on a windows machine. The passwords have been set to the controls password.
Megatron should now see and be accessible through the martian network.
