      Re: illegal ip

      If im guessing correctly on what you mean (you dont explain it very well, sorry) is that you're trying to assign a WAN IP to the router as reserved, this cannot be done as its Sky's own DHCP server that allocates those IPs and not your Netgear router, the netgear router can only reserve LAN IP's (beginning with 192.168 etc..) from its DHCP pool binding that IP to a MAC address of a device on your private network such as your computer or console.

      Hope that helps.
