IP addresses of Set Top Boxes
Last night, I put my ZyXel modem in bridge mode and configured the multicast settings on my Asus RT-AC66u router.
Everything seems to be working, except the iPad app. It is unable to locate any of the STBs.
My router has an IP address of 208.102.*.*, and all of my personal devices have IPs of 192.168.*.*, but the STBs have IPs of 74.83.*.* and 208.102.*.*
I am assuming this is why the iPad doesn't "see" them.
Does anyone know if the STBs should have 192. IP addresses so they are on the internal network?
I was able to figure it out.
My router has an IPTV setting that I had enabled that said that the STB was connected to port 4.
This allowed the STB to get an IP from outside of my router.
I disabled this, and they all have a 192. IP from my router.
