Networking with non-standard IP pool

Recommended Posts

First let me say when using my Nano via the App on my phone, the networking functions correctly.  When using it on my Windows 7 laptop however, I get no connectivity to the network.  Bulletins will not load ( Error connecting to WiFiPineapple.com. Please check your connection. ) nor will the module list populate.  My home network does not use a standard ip pool, that is to say, not 192.168.x.x - rather I use a 10.77.x.x.  IMHO this is where the problem lies.  Windows objects strongly to the settings recommended by the forums and video 'Setup Guide For Windows" https://www.wifipineapple.com/pages/setup.   because "Warning - The default gateway is not on the same network segment (subnet) that is defined by the IP address and subnet mask.  do you wish to save this configuration?"  If I click [Yes] nothing changes. 

My IPCONFIG is :

Ethernet adapter Pineapple Nano:

   Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :
   Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . : xxx::xxx:xxx:xxx:xxx%xx
   IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 172.16.42.42
   Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
   Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 10.77.x.1

   Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :

   Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . : xxx::xxx:xxx:xxx:xxx%xx
   IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 10.77.x.49
   Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
   Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 10.77.x.1

Is there any way to work on this network or is the Nano slave to a 192.168.x.x schema?

thanks!!!

On the Pineapple you need to set it's IP range too

uci set network.lan.ipaddr=XXX.XXX.XXX.1
uci commit
reboot

You also need to change the gateway in /etc/config/network
