Manage the DHCP Server Address Pool
By default, the router acts as a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server. The router assigns IP, DNS
server, and default gateway addresses to all computers that are connected to its LAN and WiFi network. The assigned
default gateway address is the LAN address of the router.
These addresses must be part of the same IP address subnet as the router’s LAN IP address. The default DHCP
address pool is 192.168.1.2–192.168.1.254.
The router delivers the following parameters to any LAN device that requests DHCP:
An IP address from the range that you define
Subnet mask
Gateway IP address (the router’s LAN IP address)
DNS server IP address (the router’s LAN IP address)
To specify the pool of IP addresses that the router assigns:
1.
Launch a web browser from a computer or WiFi device that is connected to the network.
2.
Enter http://www.routerlogin.net.
A login window opens.
