Accessing web server on mac's shared internet connection
I have shared my mac's wireless internet connection through an ethernet cable to my Humax freesat box.
One thing I am supposed to be able to do now after upgrading the firmware is to browse to the boxes IP address to view recorded programs via my computer.
The problem is that the mac's shared connection is in the 192.168.2.x range whereas my router's IP range is the 192.168.0.x range.
I can't figure out how I can browse to the 192.168.2.9 ip address from my windows PC?
Do I need to do some routing on the mac to fix this?

Can I bump this now that it's daytime rather than evening? I tried everything I could think of bar changing my routers range to 192.168.2.x as it would cock up a few things I have set up.

Why not just change your routers range? It's be quicker and simpler than faffing around. After all, it's only an internal IP range yes?

It is indeed only an internal router. I'm annoyed that the mac won't share the internet connection in the same range.
I have a few statics at home but I suppose they are only set up to stop my kids going on the internet at certain times so I'll have to re do them at some point.

That's not a Mac-specific thing, however. I'm pretty sure that's how Windows does connection sharing, too.

I imagine your home network isn't so big that you cannot manage your IPs around this, though.

I do appreciate how this could cause issues and I am expecting too much!
