He assures me that the 209.18.47.61 is my ISP's default DNS server's address.
Your ISP will not be able to translate names to IP addresses for the network in your house.

The usual way to make this work is to configure all your computers to use your router to do this translation.

Not sure what you mean. Is there anything I can do to make this work without knowing all the ins and outs you're talking about?

Thanks.

I think it is down to configuration of your home router. What device do you have?

If you mean my WiFi it is an Eero Pro mesh. I talked to them and they seem to think that it is working correctly and nothing else they can do.

If you mean my ISP's modem it is an Aaris TM1602 and that is all the information I can see on it.

I have just read the user manual for the Aaris TM1602 and it looks like it does not provide a DNS service. That is very unusual.

I can't see any way you can resolve this issue, as owner-pc has a different IP address when it is on WiFi and when it is on Ethernet, and there is nothing on your network that can do the name to IP address translation for you.

Thank you for that information. I appreciate all you have tried to do.

Don't know if it makes any difference but I did speak to my ISP tech support. They assured me that 209.18.47.61 and 209.18.47.62 are their DNS addresses.

Well just a quick update. I believe the problem all along was that the Peer services were not working. They would not start.

Thanks to all for the help. However, I do think I may have solved it by getting the Peer services to work. I am not claiming complete victory yet but it is looking good. I found the solution and had to use the third option here. https://techcult.com/wiki/troubleshoot ... ol-service
