Devices on different subnet, can't communicate (Roku)
Basic issue: my iphone Roku app cannot see my Roku device for remote control. Roku support states the IP Address must have the same first 3 digits. Alas, mine do not. What controls this, and how can it be fixed?
I have 2 eero Pro 6 devices - Office and LivingRoom. I have no other router - my external internet comes right into my eero, via a small Frontier device that converts coax to ethernet which is plugged into Office eero.
My iPhone has an IP Address of 192.168.4.22. It may roam between the two eero devices.
My Roku connected to my LivingRoom, as expected. It reported IP 192.168.5.44, with Gateway 192.168.4.1.
The issue is the third digit - iPhone is ".4." while Roku is ".5.". I unplugged my Roku, but it rebooted with the same IP.
How can I get the IP address to be the same first 3 numbers?
I have verified they are on the same wireless network. I only have 1 wireless network. Neither device is connect to 'a neighbors' wifi - I have explicitly selected my network and entered my password.
Awesome, I will try that, thanks. 240 devices should be fine! 🙂
Will all my devices that currently have an IP outside that range, automatically get the new IP? Any anticipated issues, or device restarting required?
