Why can my device not be accessed through the IP address?
Sometimes you might try to log into your device through the IP address on a computer but it gives you an error (ie. “Cannot be reached”, “Cannot be found”). This can mean a few things:
- the device is not connected to the network
- the computer is not connected to the network
- the device and network are not connected to the same network as each other
- need to add http:// to the beginning of the URL (example: http://192.168.0.100)
If you are getting that error you can check to make sure all physical network connections are secure (network cables). Also check to make sure that the device and computer are in the same network because if they are not then the two will not be able to communicate with each other.
