Router mode: Change the LAN IP address and subnet
If the access point/router is in router mode, it is preconfigured to use private IP addresses
on the LAN side and to function as a DHCP server. The access point/router’s LAN IP
configuration is as follows:
•LAN IP address. 192.168.0.100 (if the access point/router is in router mode, this is
the same as www.routerlogin.net)
•Subnet mask. 255.255.255.0
These addresses are part of the designated private address range for use in private
networks and are suitable for most applications. The IP address and subnet mask identify
which addresses are local to a specific device and which must be reached through a
gateway or router. If you need a specific IP subnet that one or more devices on the
network use, or if competing subnets use the same IP scheme, you can change the LAN
IP address settings.
Note: If you change the default LAN IP address settings, the IP address range for the
default DHCP server also changes (see Router mode: Manage the DHCP server address
pool on page 114).
To change the LAN IP address and subnet settings:
1. Open a web browser from a computer or mobile device that is connected to the
access point/router network.
2. Enter http://www.routerlogin.net in the address field.
If you are not connected to the access point/router network but to the same network
as the access point/router, enter the IP address that is assigned to the access
point/router. If you do not know the IP address, see Find the IP address of the access
point/router on page 29.
The Sign-In page displays. You are prompted to sign in with your NETGEAR account.
If the access point/router is not connected to the Internet, you are prompted to sign
in with the local login credentials (see Log in to the access point/router when it is
not connected to the Internet on page 28).
3. Click the Login button.
