I am trying to setup a RUT955 as server in my sailboat. The aim is to connected my Radar system to my Windows tablet using Wifi. Via the Raymarine (radar manufacturer, I know some people succeeded in interfacing the Classic E80 to a tablet via a wireless connection, however I think I run into my network limitations for the RUT955 and need some help setting the unit up correctly.
When I connect the computer via LAN, the system works, but not on the wifi
From the Raymarine forum, I got the following guide which I have tried to follow
3. Get a wireless router. Most will work but you want to select a model where you can configure the routing tables manually. The E80 has a fixed IP address (shown in the menu's) - for example, 10.0.59.173 (mine is 10.0.154.40). Once it is booted, it starts checking the network starting with 10.0.0.1 upwards. Thus, you want to configure the router with a gateway of 10.0.0.1 and the tablet that connects over Wifi as 10.0.0.2 or above. Raymarine recommends 10.0.0.7, you can use any address in that subnet. Make sure it does not conflict with any other devices you have. Then you setup a fixed route between the E80 (10.0.59.173 in my case) and the tablet (10.0.0.2 in my case). First you power on the router, then start the Raytech RNS sofware on the tablet, then cycle the power on the E80. The E80 will investigate the network and find the RNS software. You do not need to use the Raymarine network utilities as you have set fixed addresses already.
So my question is how do I set up this fixed route?
