I have a customer that is trying to connect to a digital sign with the IP address of 192.168.0.200 and subnet of 255.255.255.0.
The computer is already, wirelessly, connected to a server that connects to the companies registers. The computer is telling me that it's been assigned 169.254.125.40. I can't really tell you much else about the server end of this setup because they simply won't let me access it.
I figured I should be able to use the computers unused LAN port to establish a wired connection with the sign. I set its IP address to 192.168.0.201 and subnet to 255.255.255.0. This however is not working. I tried pinging it, and I checked the computers IPCONFIG settings again and it's telling me it's set to 169.254.125.40. I then turned off the wireless card and restarted the machine and tried again. It still can not ping the sign.
Is what I am doing possible? The sign manufacturer says it is.
For the record I can not change any settings in the sign.
