[Q] Android Networking Oddity

Ok, here is the deal :

I have a Global Cache iTach Wifi2IR device, it sits on a wifi network and when it receives the signel from what ever software it will throw out IR codes. This is for use with my Kindle Fire and Evo 4g devices (as well as the laptop and netbook )

So I go get a Netgear router get everything connected and the PC's can talk to the GC device but the android devices can not. Ping just fails, but I can ping the PC,s and the gateway from the android devices.

On the Evo I am using Ping and the tablet I am using fing

So I turn off the encryption leave the network wide open still wont play.

So I reset everything, and fire up the Wireless Tether on the Evo and connect the Laptop, the GC, and the Tablet to it and everything works. So that kinda point me at the router.

So I wanted something I could throw dd-wrt on after the fact and picked up a D-Link 615 E3

Go back to my typical settings (MAC address's WPA2 etc) and the android will connect and ping out but will not see the GC device no matter what.

So it has to be something I am missing with the android network settings or something that isn't allowing it to touch the GC device.

network pool is 100-199

network is 192.168.69.x
GC is static
also tried DHCP reserved @ .110
Evo 103
Tablet 102

So I am up for some suggestions, I use to do quite a bit of network setup and admin in linux but that was back in good old red hat 5.2 6.1 days and I am a bit rusty but I just need a little help getting on track for what I am looking for and what tools I may need to get this sorted out.
