Unreachable address

What would cause my portal to not update? It has been saying "unreachable address" for about a week now. It used to work fine until this started to happen. The wifi address that is shown on the portal page is the same one it has been using. If I lost power, shouldn't the portal automatically find the new wifi address?

Most likely port forwarding on your router.

I had port forwarding working before. I can't even access it internally in my network.

That's what I mean.
Your router probably assigned a new ip address to your wifi attachment and port forwarding got messed up.

I thought the portal was to suppose to automatically detect the wifi address of the wifi attachment? Right now it's still showing the one it was using when it was working correctly.

It will automatically find your WAN ip address.
The portal has no way of getting inside your network unless you allow it with port forwarding.

I finally got to checking this out. :oops: I looked to see if the router assigned a new ip address for my wifi attachment but it is still the same from when I originally set it up. The only thing that seemed different was that I had to reserve the ip address again. After all of that, I'm still getting unreachable address in the portal. I know it means port forwarding is not working, but I can't seem to see any issue's with it. Is there something else I'm missing?

I did check it with that, and it says it's not open. I figured it was port forwarding, but I can't seem to see anything wrong with it. Nothing has changed other than I had to reserve the IP address again.
