Hello Everyone! I have a question regarding ip adres.When i do connect my phone, pc to one of the BT openzone hotspots, i an getting ip adress such as 10.xxx.xxx.xxx.my question is where does this ip comes from? I an sure if the router plugged to pc via Lan cable it had different ip range. Could you please help?

Re: BtWifi & Openzone Ip adress

that is the start of the IP address when connecting to btwifi/fon. That distinguishes it if you check hub for connected devices

Re: BtWifi & Openzone Ip adress

As the BTWifi (BT Openzone) network is different to your internal network, then the BTWifi network uses the private ipv4 address starting with 10.x to avoid conflicts between the HomeHub LAN ipv4 address range.

 

You can change the HomeHub LAN's ipv4 address range to something like 172.16.0.x/24 but you will find that anything with a 10.xxx.xxx.x won't be allowed due to the HomeHub reserving this for the BTWifi network.

What other detail do you need. Your hub defaults to a 192.168.1.xx private network. BTWifi uses a 10.x private address range. What does it matter what IP address you get?

You can't ping what from what? You obviously can't ping a device from a 10.XX network from a 192.168.xx network or vice versa as they are discrete PRIVATE networks and are non-routable over the internet.

If your computer`s network setting is not set to automatic, or you have not specified that the BT Wifi is a "public" network and not a "private" one, they you are going to have problems.

My computer is set to receive automatic Ip and all the other settings via DHCP.
