    Forgive me if this answer is out there somewhere. I could not find

    I need to change my default ip address on the router from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.2.1.

    I try and it will not save. Gives me error that it is an incorrect ip address.

    Reason: My ISP satellite modem needs to be 192.168.1.1 so I can access it.

    Thanks:)

    What brand of router do you have and what kind of firmware are you running - stock or third party?

    if you are using DHCP, you would have to change ip address pool to the same subnet. some tomatousb version have a bug about this which have been fixed in beta54.

    Log-in to your router and select the "Basic" and then "Network". You will see "Router IP Address" under the LAN section. You can then change the IP address. Make sure the new IP address is also the same as the login address of the router.

    That is what I am trying to do. I change it to 192.168.2.1 but it will not let me save it and gives me the error Invalid IP address. How do I save the ip address I want it to be and then re-boot the router?

    That is what I have been trying. I log into the router as admin and I change it and get the error "Invalid IP Address" when trying to save. :frown:

    Try 192.168.1.2 instead of 192.168.2.1

    Maybe there is a same bug in original tomato firmware, I said that changing DHCP ip pool to the same subnet as your new ip even if your don't use it

    I've seen this message. Make sure you also change all other IP addresses on the page to the same subnet,such as static DNS or DHCP.
