I have been using the direct access for a while with my SkyFi 3 device without any issues. Last night I decided to connect it to my network and I got a message from my Xfinity XiFi application that a new device was found using the IP Address of 10.0.0.139. My Xfinity application shows that it's connect to the network and the SkyFi device performs a reboot and I am able to ping the address 10.0.0.139 from one of my PC's so the SkyFi 3 is on my network.
But when go to http://10.0.0.139, I am not able to connect using my browser to look at the SkyFi 3 settings. I did a scan on the forums and somebody else had this problem and he also posted it to Cloudy Nights working will Bill. He was using some kind of Apple Router and never was able to get it to work. My router is provided to me from Comcast. I am also not able to get the SkyFi 3 device with my assigned IP address of 10.0.0.139 to work with the HW VSP3 Serial Port driver so I can use Starry Night or Sky Safari.
So I changed the wireless setting to go back to my original setting using the direct mode of 10.0.0.1 and the device re-boots and I can then connect again using my browser and Starry Night.
Any idea what is preventing me to access the device when it's on my home network? I noticed that the configuration screen is changed to my home network, it has 'client' on the configuration screen.
