Hello! I believe when I first used the standalone router that I had not properly confirmed the router base IP was 192.168.1.XXX. Due to my difficulties connecting to the AC Controller, I decided to factory reset the router and set it up fresh.
The linksys router I use requires internet for first time setup. So I had the internet connected and proceeded to setup the router networks and modify the router’s base IP to the format 192.168.1.XXX.
I decided to set the actual router IP to 192.168.1.100. Then I set the IP of my PC to 192.168.1.200.
Finally, looking at the Network Map of my router, I saw for the first time the Controller on the factory supplies IP address of 192.168.1.250.
From there, I had no trouble connecting xArm studio and controlling the arm.
