is the IP address that I use to login to the Controller supposed to be the same or different as the Static IP address located in Controller/Settings/Network/Static IP....

The reason I ask, when I hover my cursor over the lower case I (for information) it says "IP address of your controller..."  

Anyway my Controller login address is a bit different than the Static IP address...

Thanks,
Mike

If you're using the static IP option then that should be the IP you use to connect to the controller. But be 100% sure you don't have "DHCP" ticked on teh controller otherwise your router will give you an auto IP address - If you're seeing a difference, maybe your router hasn't yet allocated the new static IP address or you have "DHCP" ticked? Some routers have the ability to renew lease while others require you to power off/on the router. 

To complicate the matter, at one stage my controller was being allocated a different IP than what I had set in the Static IP area, so I then did a TCPIP DHCP reservation on my router based on the MAC address of the controller. I believe that issue was rectified a while ago and should be fixed if you're using 9.1

If restarting the router or renewing the lease doesn't work, you might have to do a DHCP reservation for the controller on the router? If you do that be sure the controller has "DHCP" ticked then restart the controller after doing the reservation on the router.
