Hub 3 change LAN IP address

I'm replacing a Hub 2 with a hub 3. I have a total of 3 extra Wifi networks from different routers, all effectively in bridge mode, as well as a few other obscure odds and ends with fixed IP addresses which are tedious to change.

The Hub 2's IP address was 192.168.1.1, and the Hub 3's address is 192.168.0.1. It is possible (but very tedious indeed) to change everything to match the Hub 3, so I'd prefer to make the LAN IP address of the Hub 3 into 192.168.1.1.

Is this possible? How?

Re: Hub 3 change LAN IP address

Yes. Change it on the DHCP admin page.

But I believe the 192.168.1.X range is reserved for the guest network.

Re: Hub 3 change LAN IP address

Can you help with with how to do that then? The DHCP setting page allows you to set the number of dynamic addresses and a starting address (and a lease time). The starting address has the first two boxes fixed at 192.168, and then in principle, you can change the next two boxes. However, if I choose 1 for the subnet, it complains that "IP address is invalid". 

If it helps, I have the guest networks turned off.

Thanks in advance!

It’s invalid because it’s reserved for the Guest Network, enabled or not.

Re: Hub 3 change LAN IP address

Ah. So in other words, I can have any subnet I like except the one I want? I was worried that was the case. Boo hiss. Any workarounds come to mind? Or do I have to go to all the obscure things with fixed IP addresses and poke them individually?

Cheers, and thanks for helping.

Re: Hub 3 change LAN IP address

I was afraid that would be the answer. That's another £100, or whatever. It seems a shame, 'cos the Hub 3 ac WiFi seems pretty solid. Ah well.

Re: Hub 3 change LAN IP address

Give it time. You’ll see it’s about as solid as kinetic sand.

Re: Hub 3 change LAN IP address

Oh good! So thinking laterally, as I said, I have 3 other WiFi base stations, all bridges. There's also an old Apple Airport Extreme playing at being a network drive. Is it possible to turn off the DHCP in the Hub 3, use the Wifi, and use, say, the airport extreme for DHCP?

Thats not going to change the fact you can't have 192.168.1.0/24 on the hub.
