    Can't Add TV to Local Area Network, but have its IP and MAC address


    I have a smart TV Vizio that is connected to my home network.


    Ipconfig shows its IP address and MAC address.


    I can cast and plex to it from my pc.


    But it doesn't appear in my pc's local area network.


    Any ideas? Is there a way to force the LAN to recognize the device by its IP address?


    Thanks

    :)

    Same IP Addresses on the same Local Area Network

    Is it possible to have 2 or more computers to have the same IP address on the same local area network? ?

  3. Fix duplicate IP address on network

    My clients see this problem often. The simple solution:

    1. Pull the power plug from both your modem and router.
    2. Wait 30 seconds
    3. Plug power back to modem
    4. Wait 30 seconds
    5. Plug power back to router
    6. Wait several minutes.

    The modem has the IP address assigned to it by your internet provider. The router uses internal IP addresses that it assigns to the various devices on your local area network. Those addresses change fairly often. Once in a while, the router messes up
    and assigns the same IP address to more than one device. When all is reset as described above, the router then wakes up and discovers all these network citizens and assigns them new IP addresses. The only effect will be a short term outage of network availability
    for all the devices on the network.

    IP ADDRESS

    This problem usually sorts itself out automatically, but see the following for some suggestions:

    https://www.online-tech-tips.com/computer-tips/ip-address-already-in-use/


    If you keep getting these notifications, chances are that some device on your network is configured to use a static IP address that is within the range of addresses allocated by your router's DHCP server.

    If you need some help in sorting out a situation like this, please provide the following information:

    • the make and specific model of your router
    • the make and specific model of every device connected to your network, including printers, TV set top boxes, Internet of Things (IoT) devices, etc.
    If you have many devices connected to your network, download and run Advanced IP scanner (Advanced IP Scanner - Download Free Network Scanner.). This will list all of your currently-connected
    network devices and show their IP addresses.
