Wired traffic not routing internally but wireless does work??


  • I have a web server on my local network. I've observed that if my desktop is wireless my websites load, but if I'm wired I have limited access. I've done the typical flush DNS and reboot of the desktop. tracert resolves to my public ip. On my phone, working on mobile data to ensure I'm outside of my network, the websites load fine. To me there seems to be something that isn't routing the traffic on the wired LAN where the wireless traffic is working.

    Here's a matrix of tests I tried from my desktop attempting to visit the websites on my webserver.

    +-------------------------+-------+----------+
    |                         | Wired | Wireless |
    +-------------------------+-------+----------+
    | Accessible by Domain    |       | X        |
    | Accessible by local IP  | X     | X        |
    | Accessible by Public IP |       | X        |
    +-------------------------+-------+----------+
    

    Seeing that I'm able to load the websites externally I know it's not a port forwarding rule.


  • @Michael-Black-0 I am having this exact same issue. Were you able to find a solution?


  • it is working if you connect via 2 Switches, on different ports on the alien. if you have the lan devices on one switch connected on one alien port, it does not work


  • @Mexecutioner as someone also replied devices on the same switch aren't able to talk to each other. I'm working through support about this issue because this seems like a obvious flaw in the routing of their router. For now I have my webserver on a port directly and everything else in the switch.


  • @Michael-Black-0 Thanks for your reply. It is very strange that loopback does not work. It used to work in my HD. I will have to run another cable down to the basement and connect the webserver to a different port.


  • @nummerelf Thank you, I have tested like this by running a 100ft across the house and it in fact works. I will run one through the wall down to the basement to address this. Good times!
