need to set dhcp Starting local address to 192.168.123

Why is this new box (hub 3) unable to use 192.168.123. as the starting address for dhcp?

It seems restricted to 192.168.0 

The settings only apply to the fourth group of numbers, not the third.

Is there a work-around to this apparent restriction, please?

No big secret. The post that tells you how to do it is hard to find and its a bit *ahem*

Surprised its still there so I dont like to draw attention to it publicly. You dig?

Well done!

.. but the Defrockkers are prolly poring through the thread as I type and holding a committee as to what to do. Actually though, the SMTP commands are in the public domain so the Defrokkers or their kin would have to be paranoid to remove the advice.

Thanks again for the link

I note you say "

"

and indeed it is a bit of a hack, but Virgin may err on the side of assuming its customers are stupid and to have the router address at a non standard IP address could cause an extra few minutes of support time which costs them money. I also note the petty restrictions on passwords which require all my devices to have their wifi settings changed. And no doubt other idiocies will emerge as I try to get this new hub 3 to work as I would like. Still, its coverage is better than the old one and 5 gHz is good when you're close by.

If Virgin ever read this, then please note there are some people who don't want the "Nannie knows best" philosophy to your service and devices.

Re: need to set dhcp Starting local address to 192.168.123

If it's the top secret method I think it is, please let me know if it works as dhcp and internal access to the web interface seem to be an issue for me...

I've somehow ended up on an IP range of 192.168.43.x

I will let you know if I decide to go down that route. I has just spent a load of time reconfiguring a range extender due to the need to change wifi password to the format specified by Virgin. I have not started on the other stuff yet.

If your HUB is dishing out those LAN side addys on DHCP, you could try a factory reset but I doubt it will make much difference.

Sounds like your HUB has gone to "the land where HUB's are eternally blessed" and its time for a replacement.
