I have the v2 connected to a switch then to the modem. I can search for the IP and use the Falcon config page, even test the lights. But in LOR S5 with a built prop there is no talky talky. What settings could I have messed up?  Iv tried DMX channels and LOR channels no go. The pixels I m using are 5v 2811s. I have used alpha pix for over ten years then decided to try falcon, so I m not completely retarded... Still alittle behind the curve with S5 thou.

I don't have a F16V2 board, but if it is the same as the F16v3 and F16v4 (which from the manual appears to be) you would need to do the following using Universe 122 as an example.

You will need to define the light in your LOR "Preview Design" 
You will need to open the LOR "Network Preferences" in your light controls or tray menu and configure Universe 122 to E1.31 and specify the Falcon controller IP address.
You will need to define Universe 122 on the E131 Setup page on the Falcon Controller
You will need to assign Universe 122 to a port on the Falcon "Output Settings\Port. page.

You should set the Falcon to use a manual/static IP address.  Otherwise a power outage could cause the Falcon to be assigned a different IP address which would break things.  If you don't have a lot of lights you could set the "Network Preferences" to use "Multicast" which would then send the information to everything on the network.  At that point it would not matter what IP the Falcon grabbed, but I would not recommend the "Multicast" setting in most cases.
