I am using a Linksys WRT120N router. I have a piece of hardware connected to it by Ethernet cable. It is an Automation Direct Human Machine Interface EAP9. The goal is to connect from a remote location via the internet. I believe my problem is in the router setup.
I have port forwarding set up for the appropriate ports. When I try to ping the router from a pc not connected through the router, I get nothing. Should I be able to ping it using the ip address listed on the router's status page? Why would this not work?
