    Hi Chum Rathanakiryvongsa,

    Please check the following steps and try the device discovery again:

    1. Plug in the LAN cable to the RJ45 socket from the controller. Make sure the LED is blinking.
    2. Power on the controller.

    If the controller still cannot be discovered, please check your LAN cable condition.
