    I notice after adding my first VPN user that the router asks "Would you let the system change the device LAN IP to automatically?".

    What's the point of this exactly? Why would it want to change the LAN IP of the router? Why that IP exactly?

    Because the IP address at either side of the tunnel has to be different, keeping it as 192.168... could mean that both sides of the tunnel has the same subnet. There can be loads more 10.... subnets that 192.168.... subnets so moving it a random address in the 10.. subnet means less chance that to subnets will be identical.

    I don't know why they chose that oddball IP....

    But yeah..with VPN connections...you don't want both ends to be the same IP range. Else..the router won't know which way to go!

    I think it's good that they try to kickup a message about this..since the RV0 is designed for VPNs. Oddball IP though. I usually setup my clients offices to be something like 192.168.10.xxx ...because there's a bunch of home users..most of them having 192.168.0.xxx or 192.168.1.xxx...better to not have to bother resetting home users, just make the office different right from the start.
