I have been working with a water flow counter which sends data over wifi. I'm using an ESP8266 wifi module. Everything is correctly connected and I've gotten to the point where it's correctly connected to the wifi network and everything, except when I try to ping its IP adress from the cmd (192.168.1.125) it times out.
I know this info has something to do: I have read it's something about my ipv4 not being in the 192.168... range. But i'm not sure if that's the issue or if so, how to fix it.
I should state that the network is my company's and not my home wi-fi so I would not be able to change the network's IP adress (Maybe if it's really necessary I could speak to the network manager). Would the solution be to match the ESP8266's IP adress to the range of that of the network?) (192.192...)
ESP2866 Module IP adress: 192.168.1.125 My IPV4 Adress is: 126.96.36.199 Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0 DNS servers: 188.8.131.52 Default gateway: 184.108.40.206
