  • Guide: Dogie's Comprehensive Bitmain Antminer S3 Setup  I had some trouble getting the S3 to show up in the DHCP list.  What seemed easiest was to use the direct connection computer to S3 method.  Once I convinced myself that DHCP was working I switched to configuration with them both connected to a router using DHCP.  Check your router to make sure it includes in its DHCP range.  I went through setting up my computer with a fixed IP address to talk with the S3.  After that worked experimented and found that I could see the S3 if I dialed in but it would not show up on the DHCP equipment list. It was at that point I changed the S3 setting to DHCP.
