[SOLVED]Cannot change neither IP address nor root password
« on: August 22, 2011, 10:35:17 am »

I have just bought an "Nfinity" Airstation 300

Simple question: can I change the LAN IP address? The default is 192.168.11.1

But I want it to be 192.168.1.X because I already have a DHCP server on that subnet and don't need a new extra one.

If I turn the DHCP server off and try to set the ip address to 192.168.1.something then the router stops working

 

Also, if I change the root password, the router doesn't recognize the new one on new login!!! (And obviously forgets the old password, so I have to hard reset it)

I solved the IP problem. Simply turned the router back switch off

 

Still I wonder if it's safe to leave the blank root password. Everything is ok until someone discovers the wifi password, isn't it?
