Model: Deco M5
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

I have serveral devices on my existing network, with a server using the 192.168.1.1 as the IP address. As a result I could not just use 192.168.1.1 as the IP address for the Deco M5 network. Therefore, I configured the LAN IP on the M5 network to 192.168.1.254 and everything worked fine until the Deco M5 was rebooted. Upon reboot I noticed that the LAN IP on the Deco M5 changed to 192.168.1.1 and as a result there was a IP conflict with the server and I end up with a non-functioning network. How do I make the M5 stick to the IP address I configured it to use?

 

I can go and make changes to the IP addresses of other devices on the network and make it work, but this would required a lot of work.

Hi,

 

please  change the WAN DNS and make it not in the same network segment as the LAN IP.

After that, please test whether it works. 

 

Any updates, please let us know.

 

Good day.
