If you have several networks connected to your computer, the operating system uses the IP addresses to sort the network datas and send it to the correct network.
If two networks are connected to one computer, the root of the IP addresses have to be different, otherwise the computer will not be able to determine where to send the network datas.
Imagine a town that would have 2 streets with the same name !

This only applies if your computer is connected to two or more networks, and MERGING+NADAC has a dedicated Ethernet port.




Getting your network IP address

We first need to know what is the IP address range used by your data / home network.
Unplug or shut down your MERGING+NADAC

Determining if you need to change the IP address range

Now that we get both your computer and the MERGING+NADAC addresses, we need to compare it.
The two first numbers of your Home/Data network IP address CANNOT match the two first numbers of your MERGING+NADAC, assuming MERGING+NADAC have a dedicated Ethernet port on your computer.
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

Examples:

Home/Data network IP is 192.168.0.10 and MERGING+NADAC is 169.254.25.20 OK
Home/Data network IP is 10.0.25.20 and MERGING+NADAC is 169.254.25.20 OK
Home/Data network IP is 169.254.15.10 and MERGING+NADAC is 169.254.25.20  NOT OK
Home/Data network IP is 192.168.0.10 and MERGING+NADAC is 192.168.10.20  NOT OK

The IP address 127.0.0.0 should NEVER be used.
