So while looking at this recent question:
The poster states:
There is an existing question that seems quite similar; however, it was marked as a duplicate of a question that no longer appears to exist, so there is no longer an answer to that question.
Okay, so that sounded weird. Since the screenshots below will make this hard to read, here is the long and short of it:
I believe the deleted question should not have been deleted or closed. And I believe the supposed dupe should not have been marked as a dupe. They are 100% two different questions. One is about connecting to a modem via a router and the other is about connecting to a laptop’s
localhost:8080 via a router.
The worst error both questions suffered from were formatting quirks and typos in IP addresses like
192.168.1 instead of
192.168.1.1. And perhaps those IP address lists looked the same which caused inadvertent flagging of “dupe.” But that’s it.
Can someone with more power than me please review these two questions? Maybe they aren’t great, but they don’t seem invalid. Screenshots and links below.
