Finally got it to work! What I was missing was the Gateway Address on all devices. The PLC has an IP of 172.16.10.10/24 and a Gateway of 172.16.10.1 The RIO has an IP of 172.16.11.10/24 and a Gateway of 172.16.11.1 The PC has an IP of 172.16.1.245/24 and a Gateway of 172.16.1.1 The VLANs, 10 and 11, in VLAN Management must point to their Gateway addresses. I enabled Routing and was able to ping the PLC and RIO. Now I need to create a new communication path. I opened RSLinx, in Communications I open Configure Drivers, from the drop down list I pick Ethernet Devices and press Add New. A window opens up with only on tab, Station Mapping, in there I add the IP addresses of the PLC, RIO and the 5700, then press Apply and OK. Now I have a driver that can point me to my CPU in Logix Designer. I can now go Online.
Now I get why I was seeing all those addresses that ended with .1 in network diagrams.
