How do you change the IP address on a SH2?
I can find the settings under Advanced Settings >> My Network >> IPv4 Configuration >> IP Address but after setting the address, saving and acknowledging the warnings, the browser address bar automatically changes to the new IP address and then times out.
If I then use the previous (default) IP address, I can log straight back in and clearly the IP address has defaulted back.
Does anyone know why this is occurring and what to do to change it?
Ordinarily I wouldn't mind the IP address but in this case I have a conflict and would rather change one address rather than many!!
Solved! Go to Solution.
I believe you need to change the DHCP range to match the gateway address, otherwise the change isn't saved as you've found.
DHCP seems a bit flaky on the SH2. I don’t know whether it will help in this case, but one thing I’ve found…
If the new IP is for a different subnet to the DHCP range, (even when DHCP is disabled), the SH2 reverts back to the previous address and it doesn’t even tell you. Seems it has to be a “valid” address for DHCP even when it is outside the range and set as static.
