I installed 3.5.6 on PI 4 and appears to have successfully installed. However, when trying to access the IP address from my computer, I get an error "Can't reach this page". I have also tried http://fpp and http://fpp.local. I have my FPP connected via HDMI monitor which is how I'm able to see the IP address. 192.168.7.xxx is my home network.

you can't use fpp from a 192.168.7.x home network because that range is used for FPP tethering. Ideally you'd change your home network to another range.

it appears that 192 networks don't work with FPP so I had to make some adjustments to my router to change it over to a 10 network and that did the trick.

I ran my two pi's with FPP on a 192.168.1.x network with no issues what so ever, even over wireless. Perhaps yours didn't get a IP from your router and you saw the ip's that it wanted for FPP tethering?

192 networks work fine, just not 192.168.7.x and 192.168.8.x as Daryl mentioned above - these are reserved for internal functions of FPP
