Solved Basic subnetting confusion on home network

Specs: Windows XP
Hello, I've recently bought a pretty old second-hand PDU to play with on my home network (AP9225, www.apc.com).

When I hook it up to my D-link home router I cannot locate it on the network even though it is definitely running. There is a sticker on it (from previous owner) which has address 192.168.1.8. I don't think it supports DHCP so I'm assuming this must be its statically configured IP.

My question is, should I be able to ping this device given that IP? My router's IP is 192.168.0.1 and the netmask is the standard one: 255.255.255.0. It seems like it has an address "outside" this subnet?

✔ Best Answer
The device is on a different network than your router.. You need to configure the device so it has an IP address in the range 192.168.0.xx
