I’ve been trying to fiddle about and set up a VM so I can play about with the router. I can’t get it to be reachable on my network, and I also can’t seem to find anyone to give me any suggestions. I knows its perhaps a little trivial but I really am confused.
It is set up as a VM inside virtualbox, this is what I have done so far to try and get it to work. I set up virtual box and set up the machine using the iso
I set the ram to 516MB and the physical storage to 8GB
I logged onto the OS and stored an image so that it can save and no longer boot from the iso file
I went into the router settings and I set a static IP address of 192.168.1.101/24
I commited the change and saved the router,
then I rebooted after setting the VM to bridge to my network
and I went back in and checked the interfaces on the router and it has eth0 set to 192.168.1.101/24 and status is u/u
however, I cannot ping my local host or any other addresses
I can ping the loopback address
When I ping 192.168.1.1 I get the host is unreachable
if i ping an address such as 192.168.0.x it doesn’t even try to ping it just says network is unreachable.
I tried also pinging the router from my host machine, but when I ping an address, I end up getting a response or lack thereof from a different address to the one i tried.

Anyone any suggestions?
I tried SSH too thinking maybe it was to do with ICMP but nothing.
