I access my Hubitat C7 from my PC laptop,
I had my Hubitat connected to my Rogers router with a reserved IP address 10.0.0.163.
Today, I switched over to Bell and have a new router.
I was able to connect everything to the Bell router except my Hubitat.
The Hubitat did not show up in my list of devices listed in my router settings.
I switched back to the old router, and connected to the Hubitat.
I made a local backup to my computer,
I then changed the option from Reserved to DHCP IP address.
The Hubitat the asked me to reboot.
After the reboot, I was unable to connect to the Hubitat from my computer,
Then I went into a bit of a panic mode.
In my list devices on my original router, the Hubitat is listed as 'Offline'
I swapped out the new router, but the Hubitat still couldn't be found in the list of devices of the new Router.
I then found the Registered Hubs, and deleted the registration of the hub.
(This was likely a big mistake, but I thought maybe it would eliminate the history of IP address registration to the router)
There is still no Hubitat connection when I connect either routers. I no longer have any access to any of the Hubitat menus.
Any ideas how to proceed?
Can I do a hard reset if I can't even connect to the Hubitat?
If I do a hard reset, will I be able to retrieve my data from the backup?
I'm a relative newbie and only have a few devices connected, so I don't think it would be a huge endeavor to recreate. I'm think it would have been easier than what I've tried so far.
I still don't know if I have a Hubitat problem, or a router problem.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
