This may sound a stupid question...
I have an ADSL wireless modem. My phone and a router are connected to it (Router is wired to a LAN port).
These are assigned IPs:
Router: (From Modem's DHCP client list)
I have a PC connected to the router. But the PC's IP is
My router's config page is accessible from the PC at address but not from my phone even at address
ADSL modem's config page is accessible both on PC and Phone at
My question is: How can I connect to PC and use it's shared files & printer from my phone? and is my configuration correct? (this is default configuration and all devices are connected to the internet)

  • (Router is wired to a LAN port) :You need to turn DHCP off on this router as your router is performing DHCP services. You probably have two DHCP servers running

  • Can I set every Device's IP manually on 192.168.1.X ragne? Turning off DHCP on router didn't help. Setting IPs manually didn't work either. But is it possible to have every IP in one range? Oct 13, 2019 at 13:41
  • If you have one (only) DHCP Server then all IP addresses will be in one range

  • Then the router will act like a switch. Right? Oct 13, 2019 at 13:53
  • More or less Yes. I hook up routers way and no issue

I managed to connect to PC from my phone by defining a virtual server. I added my PC's IP address to router's virtual server list. Now I can access my PC using router's IP address.
