This page shows how to change the LAN IP Address on the NetComm NF2 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 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, follow our NetComm NF2 Login Guide.
If you followed our login guide above then you should see this screen.
Now that you have finished logging into the NetComm NF2 you are going to be placed on the Home page of your router. When you need to change your IP Address, the address that you are looking at while inside your local network, click the choice on the bottom of the page labeled Switch to advanced view.
On this new page is a black bar at the top of the page. Click the choice labeled Network Setup, then DHCP Server.
On this new page, enter your new IP address you have chosen for your router in the box labeled LAN IP Address. One good option for your router is the address of 192.168.0.1 On this screenshot, there are two choices for LAN IP Address, just enter your new address in the first box.
Nothing else on this page should be changed. We recommend that you leave the DHCP Server enabled. This allows your router to choose from more than one address when needed.
All that is left to do is to click the choice labeled Save near the bottom of the page. That's it, you did it!
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.
