LAN Addresses, 16 & 20 Bit.

Post by WETBOTTOM » Sat Jan 19, 2019 11:34 pm

I now have Spectrum Business Class Service which uses 20 bit LAN addresses like 172 .19 .0 .23.
I had to do this to get a static IP address, but now I fear, I may have created a monster!

Before I reset back to the default LAN address ( a 16 bit address like 192........), I would like to
know if my MeteoBridge will work with a 20 bit LAN address. Will it work with a 20 bit LAN address??
If not, if I get my own Wireless Router and use my own network (with 16 bit addresses and the Spectrum Modem), will I be OK with MeteoBridge??

I don't see a problem, but never tried. I think there is no way around doing a test yourself?
You can reset to default LAN config as described in wiki's "getting started" section. So no risk ;-)
