    Incorrect IP address reported by LMS & by SB player

    Starting a few weeks ago, my LMS starting reporting my router's IP address instead of its own. If I open up SqueezePad on my iPad, for example, and click "search" it will find my instance of LMS running under the proper hostname, but the IP address that gets filled in is my router's IP instead of the actual IP of the PC runnin LMS.

    Similarly, when I have my SB Classic connected (after typing in the correct IP for it to connect to), the "Information" tab on my LMS Server Settings page reports the player's IP as my router's IP instead of its actual IP.

    I've confirmed that the SB & the PC running LMS do in fact have their own distinct IP addresses.

    What could be causing this? I'm running DD-WRT on my router and I'm not real familiar with all the options, so I've left most of them set to the defaults. Is this a router problem? Or an LMS problem? Or something else entirely?

    I'd be very grateful for any light you all might be able to shed on this for me. Thank you!

    Edit: reading your post again, it looks like your router seems to send the discovery packets from it's own address. It would do so whenever it actually routes (does NAT) so I would suspect your server, the player and the iPad are on different subnets, e.g. The server on 192.168.0.10 and the player on 192.168.1.10 with a subnetmask of 255.255.255.0. Since under these conditions the server's address would not be valid in the iPad's subnet and the player's address not be valid in the server's subnets, the router's address gets filled in instead.

    Thanks so much for your response. I double-checked, and the server is 172.21.21.105 w/subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. The router is 172.21.21.1 w/subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. SB Player is reporting an IP of 172.21.21.75. iPad reports an IP of 172.21.21.61.

    I have port 9000, 3483, and 9090 forwarded to 172.21.21.105 (the server).

    I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, just not sure what. I don't know if the problem started when I switched to DD-WRT or something else triggered it, but it's confusing.

    Thanks again for your reply.
