Static Route on My Net N900 HD

Hopefully I use the correct terminology in this post. Apologies in advance if I haven’t.

I was trying to setup a static route on my My Net N900 HD and I was trying to specify a next hop address which I specified as:

Destination IP:

Subnet Mask:


The IP address of this device is 

The device reported that the Destination IP specified was invalid. Yet from much of the networking materials that I’ve seen about setting up the next hop address the above is how the next hop address would be specified.

What is the problem here?

I haven’t tested this myself so I don’t even know if WD routers can hop to the next packet, I’m crurious as well.
