Does the radio and PC need to be on the same subnet?

Can't talk to your radio? This is the place to ask!

Does the radio and PC need to be on the same subnet?

Postby WB8RNV » Mon Sep 14, 2020 3:21 pm

Sorry if this has been addressed ... I searched the Forum over but could not find anything.

Anan 200D on Thetis works fine on PC running the same subnet. Radio - 192.168.200.250 PC-192.168.200.116

Move the PC to another subnet in the house PC-192.168.1.175 and it will not connect to the radio

I can ping the radio with no problem but Thetis gives the error questioning if the 200D is connected and powered on.

It has to be something simple I am over looking but can't figure it out.

Thanks,
Randy

Not sure why you have subnets...maybe you should switch to a class B or class A internal network address if you just want more address space and aren't actually routing anything special. Personally I use a class A internal address space.

Class A: 10.0.0.0 to 10.255.255.255
Class B: 172.16.0.0 to 172.31.255.255
Class C: 192.168.0.0 to 192.168.255.255

Doesn't appear Thetis has the ability to set the net mask.

Easiest thing for you to do is set up a second IP address for your computer on that subnet.

Next easiest is set up routing tables on your network router to route between the two subnets.
