This page shows how to change the LAN IP Address on the NetComm NF2-N900 router.
The LAN IP Address of a router is also known as its internal IP address. It is also the IP address that you connect to when you want to configure your router. It is only useful from inside your network and has no use from the Internet side.
Routers have 2 IP addresses: an internal ip address and an external ip address. The external IP address is assigned to you by your Internet Service Provider, or ISP, and is generally not something that you can change. The internal IP address is set to a default value at the factory but can be changed if you want.
Common internal IP addresses for routers are:
It is generally a good idea to make the last number of your router's internal IP address a '1', as in 192.168.0.1 or 10.0.0.1. This is not necessary, but many people do it and it makes it a bit easier to remember which IP address is assigned to your router. If you want to change the internal IP address of your router, this guide shows you how.
To get started configuring the NetComm NF2-N900 LAN page you need to login to your router. If you are already logged in you can skip this step.
To login to the NetComm NF2-N900, follow our NetComm NF2-N900 Login Guide.
If you followed our login guide above then you should see this screen.
After you've logged into the NetComm NF2-N900 router you'll be taken to the Home page. To change your IP address click Switch to advanced view near the bottom of the page. From here click Network Setup and then DHCP Server.
On this new page you'll be given the ability to change your router's LAN IP Address. Enter your new address into the first box. Not sure what you should change it to? 10.0.0.1 is a good option.
Beneath that is the Subnet Mask. Be sure not to change this. It needs to stay at 255.255.255.0
Congratulations! You're done. Just be sure to click Save before closing the page.
When you change your LAN IP Address you are making a fundamental change to how your network functions and all computers on your network will be affected. You will lose your Internet connection when you apply these changes. Your router may reboot and require a couple of minutes to start responding again.
Also note that some computers may need to be rebooted after you make this change before they can talk to the router or on the Internet again.
