But presumably your router is somewhere at 10.x.x.x and is configured
to hand out addresses like 10.x.x.x. This is not the case for me.
My router is and is configured to hand out IPs via DHCP
between and (because the rest is reserved
for static IPs in my home network).

So if a device gets as an IP address here, there is
something very wrong.

Whatever I configure - either DHCP in the same way that works just fine
for any RISC OS 4 Select or RISC OS 5 machine, or static IP like I
do for the RISC OS 4 and previous machines - it does not work.

You suspect wrongly. And even if I did, there is no way that could
result in an IP address assignment like And it does not
make failure in static IP situation plausible at all.
