WAG354G Changing to 192.168.100.xxx

    I hope this is an easy question. I have a WAG354G (Firmware Version: 1.01.54) My wife has recently started working from home and her work network operates on a 192.168.1.xxx range and they've asked me to change my home network to a 192.168.100.xxx range so that things she needs to do over VPN work properly.

    I thought this would be as simple as changing the router's local IP address to 192.168.100.1 and rebooting, but none of my machines get an IP address from the DHCP after doing this. Manually changing a PCs IP address to 192.168.100.2 of course allows me to log back into the router, but I can't access the web until I change back to a 192.168.1.xxx range. Am I going about this completley wrong? Or is there somthing I'm missing (changing the subnet mask on the router also perhaps? if so what to?)

    Sorry if this has been covered before - I couldn't find an answer when searching...

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    you will need to change both the router IP AND the DHCP range.
    It seems your dhcp range is still in the 192.168.1.X with a mask of 255.255.255.0. Change this to 192.168.100.X with a mask of 255.255.0.0 to allow you to see all subnets. This way, your PCs should have the right IP.

    You will also need to change the gateway IP in the PC or dhcp.
