      Can I use 192.168.0.0 IP for Sky Router? TP-Link Switch Conflict...

      I installed a TP-Link switch about 2 weeks ago, assigned a static IP (the default is same as the router 192.168.0.1) and all was fine. Today the electricity went off for short period and when it returned the switch had reset the IP. Now I can't access the switch admin page and instead get the router admin page each and every time. I've tried multiple switch factory resets, reset the power, reboot the router but with no luck.

      Is this IP OK to use for the black Sky router, 192.168.0.0?

      Thanks

      Re: Can I use 192.168.0.0 IP for Sky Router? TP-Link Switch Conflict...

      I think I've worked it out. I've put the router on 192.168.0.2 which I didn't realise I could, as I always thought that the router had to be the first in the series of IP's in the range. It seems to be working OK, just need to update the Gateway IP's on each connected device to end in .2.


      If this is wrong, please give me a heads up before I change 16 devices.


      Thanks

      You can choose whichever IP you like as long as: -

      Subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 means that first three parts must remain the same for your devices to be in the same network.

      You can use whatever IP you like for the router as long as you don't use 0.0 or 0.255 for it - and as long as the PC's are set to use the router as its gateway - you are good.

      The easiest thing you could've done was set the router to 192.168.0.1 and the switch to 192.168.0.254.

      I have my RT-AC68U on 192.168.0.1 and my VDSL modem on 192.168.0.253

      Thanks a lot for clarification.

      Yeah that would have been easy, but as I wrote (that you didn't read) wasn't possible.
