I have been having issues with the Tablo maintaining connection to the web app. When trying to connect from the web based app, I get “A connection to your Tablo could not be established. Please check your internet connection.”. I know that the internet is fine on my computer as I can surf the web and connect to my router by entering its IP (192.168.2.1). After rebooting the Tablo, it works temporarily on all my devices, but then after a few hours the web based clients can no longer connect. In trying to resolve the error, I came across forums suggesting to assign the relevant computers and the tablo static IP addresses, so I did that.
The weird part is that when I go to my router’s settings (edgrouter X for reference), the Tablo is shown as connecting under the static IP (192.168.2.59). However, when I go to the setting of the Tablo from the iphone client (which never has connection issues), the Tablo shows its private IP as 18.104.22.168?
The plot thickens when I try to enter the theoretical static ip 192.168.2.59 into chrome from one of the computers that wont connect, I get the “Nuvyyo Tablo Server” which makes me think that my computer can find the Tablo, the Tablo just can’t find its way back to the computer?
For reference the tablo is directly connected by Ethernet into a port on the edgerouter. One computer is connected via Ethernet through a netgear switch and the other is a laptop via wifi. Both computers get the same error.
Finally after rebooting the Tablo by hitting the reset button for a hot second, the Tablo will connect with all devices and for a fleeting few hours and display the correct ip address in its settings 192.168.2.59.
