    Hi all,

    I have a strange problem and do not know how to proceed.

    If I open a telnet connection to the prismcube and ping some devices (pc, other receiver, etc) within my network then the ping works as expected and I get answer from that devices.
    Only the router - a fritz box - do not answer to the ping request.

    My original task was to connect the hard disk attatched to the fritz box. But all tries failed and so I started to search for the reason.
    P.s. From other devices I can ping the router and access the hard disk.

    Can you give me some hint to find the reason and solution for this fenomena.

    Thank you

    Bye

    Hi,

    I found a solution.

    I changed the network setting to DHCP instead of using a static connection.

    With DHCP the ping to the router works.

    I still not understand the reason why it fails using the static connection.
