I'm a dumb dumb... I was trying to set the IP address via holding down
the RIT button and turning on the radio...
I didn't realize I could also set the IP when the radio was in 'remote
state' via the menu. When I do this, I am able to turn to 192.168.0.3.
Sorry for being an idiot.
By the way, the remote state is nifty - I haven't transmitted yet, but
the rx audio sounds very good (while on my home network, anyway).
