Updating to 2011b solved my problems.
GigE Camera Connection: Unable to set Packet Size
26 views (last 30 days)
I am trying to connect to a Pleora Technologies Analog to digital GigE device that is supposed give me an GigE connection to my analog camera. I can connect to the camera just fine using Pleora's provided GEVPlayer, however when I try to connect to the camera using imaqtool I always get the error:
Error Using ==> imaqdevice.preview at 181 gige: Unable to set PacketSize.
I have tried changing the packet size and saving the settings using GEVplayer, and then reopening the camera in imaqtool but I always get the same error.
In addition I have tried changing the settings on my ethernet adapter to allow Jumbo frames, but with no luck.

There is a bug in 2010b in using GigE vision devices. That's the version before you are using, but the bug was not necessarily corrected immediately. My understanding is that there is a workaround.
