Use NetEdit to assign the DM1E's IP Address along with its subnet mask. You can also do it from within Do-more Designer using the USB link (PLC->System Information, then in the lower middle is the Set Node and IP Configuration button to configure those settings).

Make sure your IP Address and Subnet Mask are consistent with the PC running Designer. Once you have the PLC's IP Address and subnet mask established, then you should be able to create an Ethernet link using the Link Wizard from Designer.
