Thank you for your question Paris_Law!

Sorry for the trouble with the IP redirecting to the signup page. When using WordPress multisite, the wildcard subdomains are used to direct to a specific WordPress site on your server. Because the IP is being used in the address bar, the multisite WordPress cannot find the account, directing the page to the signup Unfortunately, because the WordPress multisite requires the domain to work in conjunction with the subdomains, you will need to use the domain and not the IP address for your WordPress site. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Take Care!
