    Default E682 Default Gateway?

    The original documentation for the E682 (from 2012) allowed you to set a default gateway on the device.

    I also know the Wiznet allows setting a gateway (GWR register).

    Is there any way to still get a gateway set on the current E682 firmware? Or does the firmware maybe assume a specific gateway address even if you don't specify one? (e.g. First usable host address on the subnet = gateway?)


    Reason is I'm rewiring my house into multiple routed subnets this summer, and it will be very complicated to get my Computers and E682's unto the same subnet. Of course when it actually talks E.131 (from a Raspberry Pi) this will be from the same subnet - the routing is just to get access to the administrative web pages on the E682's from all my other computers.

    If you are running windows, through the command prompt you can add a routing from that PC to the E682. My Pi and E682 are on a different subnet than the PC I use to access them. This worked for me.

    Can't see how that would work.

    Unless the PC and E682 are still both on the same physical switched Ethernet network with just two different sets of IP addresses, in which case, sure.

    But if you have a real router in between the PC and the E682, the E682 without a default gateway configured is going to try to ARP the PC's IP address in order to reply back to it, and nobody is going to respond back to that.
