      Change UP Address odf touter?

      I am wondering whether to change the IP address of my Sky Hub SR102 from the standard 192.168.0.1 to something less obvious (for security purposes).

      What are your thoughts on this?

      No point, anyone connected to your network or router can easily scan the whole thing. Knowledge of the default LAN setup of a router doesn't gain you any advantage unless there is a known exploit. That being said, if you wanna play about with it, go for it. Not sure if it will affect any Sky hardware or services... it shouldn't, but it is Sky after all.
