Changing Static IP address

Hello.

I can't connect my computer to Ethernet due to a static IP address.

How can I change this?

Thanks.

Re: Changing Static IP address

you will need to explain in more detail what you are trying to do and what is happening, as your current explanation makes no sense.

Re: Changing Static IP address

Thanks for replying.

I've just changed the Ethernet cable and that seems to have solved the problem.

I was having trouble connecting a new router.

The Netgear support team thought the problem was a "static IP address" as "the modem wasn't able to assign an IP address."

I wan't sure what that meant either 🙂

Re: Changing Static IP address

I think that you have got a conflict between the Hub and your Router.

Try setting them up again using the following method ...

Put the Hub 3 into modem mode …

To enable modem mode on your Hub 3

  1. Make sure you are connected (wired or wirelessly) to your Hub 3.0
  2. Open your Internet browser
  3. Log in to your Hub's settings page by entering 192.168.0.1 into the address bar of your Internet browser
  4. Enter your Hub 3 settings password. The default password is on the bottom of the Hub 3.  If you have changed the default password, enter that password instead
  5. Once you've logged in, click Modem Mode on the left
  6. Click the option next to Enable Modem Mode and then click Apply changes

and wait for the base light to turn magenta.

Note: Once in Modem Mode, the IP address you use to access your Hub changes from 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.100.1.

 ………………………………………………………………………..

Disconnect all ethernet cables from the Hub 3 then power off the Hub 3.

Then, set up your own router with the WAN port set to be in DHCP mode. Make sure it’s fully initialized (leave 5 min) and then put in the Cat 5E/6 cable to the Hub 3.

Now power up the VM hub and you should get a connection. This order only needs to be done the first time you connect your own router to the VM hub.

Re: Changing Static IP address

Are you attaching your own router to the virgin hub?

Re: Changing Static IP address

Thanks. I’ll give that a go tomorrow and see what happens (can’t face the wrath of the family right now if I turn off the Wi-Fi again!).

Then you need the hub to be in modem mode
