Cannot communicate on LAN when WIFI doesnt have internet [Resolved]

This is pertaining to a smart phone with data.

My phone is connected to my WIFI which lacks internet currently. It is also connected to the cell network and using it for data. When I ifconfig it tells me I am connected on wlan with and rmnet at I am trying to ping a device on for purposes.

If I turn off my cell network I can ping it fine. With my cell network on its unreachable.

How do I get my android to allow me to ping while being on the cell network? I have only noticed this since the internet went out on my WIFI so its a strange and new problem.
