Changing DHCP range error

Hey people, 

I am trying to change the router so the IP address range is 192.168.1.10 (rather than 192.168.0.1) but it's coming back with an error. 

Any ideas?

Thanks

You can't have 192.168.1.xxx pick another.

Re: Changing DHCP range error

Change the number of CPEs to 244  or fewer and see if it accepts that.

The valid IP range is 192.168.1.1 - 192.168.1.254

192.168.1.0 is reserved as the network identifier

192.168.1.255 is reserved as the broadcast address

As mentioned above, you simply cannot use the 192.168.1.0/24 subnet at all, it's reserved for the guest wifi provision (even if you're not actually using it). As you have found, the Hub's interface won't let you select it.

Re: Changing DHCP range error

Thanks to all, it was worth a try, Just a bit weird how the last 2 boxes are editable......never mine, all sorted, just 4 static IP addresses needed changing to the new 192.168.0.xx 

 

Thanks again

Re: Changing DHCP range error

Box should really have an option to change guest WiFi subnet, but that would be too easy!

Re: Changing DHCP range error

So any Virgin SH3 customer trying to configure a Hikvision security camera without an NVR - give up, you'll never get to reset it's default IP address of 192.168.1.64 ?

Well the newer HikVision cameras should be set to DHCP but if not, all you need to do is to plug the camera into the Hub, connect a PC to the Hub as well, give the PC a temporary static address of, say, 192.168.1.99/24, doesn't matter what you set as the gateway address, then you should be able to get to the camera's IP address of 1.64 and configure it to something on the 192.168.0.0/24 subnet. Once done set the PC back to DHCP and let it get a new IP address and browse to the camera's new address and complete the configuration.

Done!

But is its IP changeable? you can link it to a PC with a static IP to config the camera IP.

Re: Changing DHCP range error

Although I haven't tried it I think setting the PC's subnet mask to something like 255.255.0.0 would enable access to the camera's 192.168.1.64.
