I am trying to connect my computer (which is DHCP) to a device on the same network via a web browser. The Device has a static Ip of but the PC i am using has a DHCPa ip of It is a LAN. There is only 1 router and modem on the network. I can not ping the 192. address from my pc. What would I need to do to be able to web browse from my pc to the device? Still very new to this stuff and would appreciate the help.

If you can't change the device IP, you may need to change your network setup from 10.x.x.x range to 192.x.x.x in the router perhaps.
I THINK :thumbsup:

Is all this in one physical location?

What device are we talking about, something you have that has a static IP and you really can't change it?
What did you connect to it when you tried to change it?
What's it connected to? Sounds like a totally private network (192...) as is yours (10.x.x.x)

Try to describe the physical connections of all these things.
Some clarification of your setup and what's required might lead to few answers on this forum. Until then, it's clear as mud.

I promise NO answers, just trying to have YOU describe things better so someone might understand what you're facing.
