I've set up a security system for a client and when I go check it out on his desktop pc, I cannot ping any of the static IP's I've assigned it. However I can see all the IP's on my laptop and am able to log in to each one's interface. Here's what I have set up.
- I set up a bridge inside his barn that has the IP of 10.1.1.1 (this can't be changed, I've tried)
- I changed the IP of the modem (Windstream Sagemcom) to 10.1.1.4
- I set up a DLink Router to be an Access Point and set a static IP of 10.1.1.6
- I set the DVR of the Security System to 10.1.1.16
The Access Point has the bridge and the DVR connected to it on LAN ports. White I was in the barn I could connect to each IP on my laptop and view their interface. I also was able to do this from the house on my laptop as well. However when I tried on the Desktop I could not log in and could not ping any site. I did not try to turn the wireless off on my laptop and connect an ethernet cable to it to see if it works. For the record I have Macbook Pro and the desktop is Windows 7.
I've thought about this but can't really think what could be causing this. Is it's a setting on the Access Point or Bridge that I missed? Basically, what can I check on these devices to get the desktop to see all the networked devices? I'm going back on Monday to look at this again but any suggestions/advice would be appreciated.
