Deco LAN IP issue with Wired/Wireless mix and TV control
2019-11-28 17:50:23
Model: Deco M4
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

Hey All-

 

My Roku/Fire app doesn't see my TV which is connected via ethernet. I beleive this is due to the Deco connection on my phone which has a 192.168.68.# address. Compared with the TV on 192.168.1.#.  Sure this must have come up. Deco of course won't let me change the LAN IP to the same 192.168.1 sequence. Any resolution?

The Deco can only create one subnet so there is not a way each device can be on a seperate subnet unless the devices are on seperate networks.  The only exception to this is on older version of the Deco Software the Guest network was a seperate subnet, this was done for security so Guest devices could not comminicate with the Local network.  With the most recent Firmware however this has been changed and we just add options to isolate the guest network from the local.

You are having a basic networking issue, not really a Deco thing.

You can run your Deco in AP mode to get on the same subnet as the wired devices. You will loose the automation features of the Deco though.

Or you could put your modem's router into 'Bridge Mode' but that (if a possible feature on your modem...) is rather complicated. Best to get some help if you try that route.
