Model: ER7206 (TL-ER7206)  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.2.3 Build 20221104 Rel.41500

ER7206 V1 on `192.168.20.0/24` with IP address `192.168.20.1`

 

Remote management by a PC at the same subnet with IP address of `192.168.20.240/32`

 

Is this correct? If not, I will probably be locked out.

I found extra resource on this topic Configure remote management on SMB router . Not sure how helpful. I don't think this Remote Management is here to secure the page from Local traffic.

 Hi @YuukiA 

 

Remote Management is used to manage your router from WAN side. It's not used to secure the page from local LAN network. 

 

The subnet/mask should be a WAN side IP(in normal case a public IP), so you can login the router via it's WAN IP address.

 

If you want to login the router from anywhere, you can put in 0.0.0.0/0 as the remote IP, so all IP that can communicate with your router WAN, will be able to open the router login page.

Finally! I understand now. I have set the value to `0.0.0.0/0` and now I can login to the login page from the outside. Thank you so much for your help.
