My current setup:
• iTach GC-WF2IR: http://www.globalcache.com/files/docs/Quickstart_iTachWF_x1_distrib.pdf
I am trying to set up a universal remote control system that converts IR signal to Wi-Fi via the oncontrols iTach Module units. In order for the control to function correctly the units must
have static IP addresses assigned to each unit. Currently there are 4 iTach units that need a static IP Address.
The way to assign the static IPs to the modules is by connecting directly to the modules via wifi and typing in the IP, subnet and gateway addresses.
I have followed the instructions on the manual PDF link which I provided above and have successfully managed to get the static IPs to work directly with the AT&T Arris router, however when I bring the ASUS into the network the iTach modules aren't able to communicate using their static IPs.
I have tried setting up the router both in Wireless Router Mode
and in Access Point Mode
with no luck.
We are paying an extra $15/month for getting Static IPs from AT&T, these all start with 104.14.X.X with subnet 255.255.248.0. Currently we have 5 useable Static IPs.
I've been on the phone with both AT&T and ASUS techs for about 5 hours and still have not been able to figure it out. We need the strength of the ASUS to cover the entire 3-story house, biggest issue is reaching the basement.
ASUS reps say that I have to assign the last available static IP to the ASUS router in order to make the entire network function properly but the only thing that ends up happening is that the ASUS assigns the other 4 static IPs to all the other devices on the network and we currently have about 14 different clients online from iPhones, iPads, computers and HDTVs. The rep also said that the ASUS CAN NOT assign the static IPs because they are outside of the 192.168.X.X DHCP range, but I don't believe that's the case since it works on the AT&T router.
If anyone can help resolve this, it would be G R E A T L Y appreciated! I'm not a networking specialist but I can definitely manage myself around the settings. If more info is needed, just let me know.
