The WD AC1300 is installed behind the Verizon FiOS Actiontec Broadband Router. Wi-Fi is turned OFF on the Actiontec, only Ethernet ports are active; Broadband Router has 192.168.1.1 Gateway address going out to the FiOS Internet Service.
WD1300 is brand new a few days ago and also has a WD MyNet AC Bridge connected to it wirelessly (TV’s and DVD players connected to the AC Bridge via Ethernet ports,of course).
The WD AC1300 is plugged into the Ethernet port on the Broadband router and was given the IP address 192.168.1.5. Its IP Address range that it can assign is 192.168.1.100-149. Wireless devices like iPhones do connect to the Ac1300 and get Internet access. Also the TV and DVD players also get Internet access via the WD Bridge.
HOWEVER, after inital setup of the AC1300 (done via an Ethenet port on it, not wireless) I cannot get to the My Dashboard, unless I disconnect from the Actiontec router port and reconnect manually to the AC1300 Ethernet ports with my PC. Entering the 192.168.1.5 address times out and does not get to the Dashboard. Obviously 192.168.1.1 does not work because that takes me to the Verizon router, as it should. So my Dashboard is working, but only via direct connection to the AC1300 roiuter, not indirectly through the Verizon router using IP address. Could this be something in the WD firewall blocking traffic coming in from devices on the LAN (my PC), thinking it is Internet traffic trying to login remotely to it (so blocked). Note my PC address 192.168.1.3 is on the same LAN private address range as the AC1300 itself. Any ideas of what to try to get to My Dashboard from my PC?
