Re: Static Route with Just Add Power Video Matrix

Any help on how to set up a static route with a different ip range and subnet range? The ip range is static and not assigned by the router. There are about 15 devices with ip's in the range of 172.16.

What do you mean by getting close? Do you mean it has the specs. It the software hasn't caught up?

I would prefer a rack mount solution.

Do you think the RB2011iL-RM will be able to handle it?

If not, what is the next rack mount that can do it?
