How to assign a different IP range to att router?
I currently have att fiber with an att WiFi router. I am using one of the ports of my att router to send the internet over to my previous Linksys router. I’m assuming dhcp is controlled by the att router. I’ve e got devices, both WiFi and wired, hanging of the Linksys.
Before I had att, all of my devices had internal IP address as 192.168.101-199. DHCP was controlled by my Linksys previously. I had a few devices where I assigned a fixed IP address to inside the Linksys using the devices MAC address. These were printers and NAS drives. I turned off dhcp in those devices too and in their setup screens assigned them a specif ip 192.168.1.1## address.
Now ot that I have tthe att router, all of my devices on my Linksys are using a different internal ip range. Most all work fine. But the ones where I turned off dhcp and use a fixed ip do not work. Their ip is not in the range that att router assigned. And at this point I cannot do anything to even get into their setup screens to change their ip or change them to dhcp.
I need a solution to fix to fix this issue. I think the easiest thing would be for me to change the device ip allocation range of ips in the att router and set a fixed ip to my devices that “need” one. But I’m open to other suggestions. I’m not much of a networking expert.
can I do what I’m suggesting? If so, how do I go about making the changes to the att router?
is there a better way to get these devices back online to my network again?
