Creating the fix - Add a route in static route if needed
After arguing with support that I needed 5 minutes of REAL assistance I found myself in a funny spot. The router was configure , but did not have a static route added for return or reverse ARP to effectively work. DUH right ? Wonder how both myself and support missed a simple thing like the route?
If your trying to route real world IP's on a LinkSys or Dlink you have to add the static route of the class c with 2 hops. Funny this was not found anywhere in or on their site, like no one ever uses real Ip's on a network any more. Ever wanted to just scream at it ?
