Smart Hub 2 10.0.x.x

Does anyone know if the Smart Hub 2 allows LAN addresses in the 10.0.x.x range. The HH6 doesn't, the Business Hub 6 does. I use a Business Hub, and am thinking about a Smart Hub 2 but use the 10.0.x range.

I don't intend to try it, but the SH2 does have a custom setting which apparently allows any range to be entered as well as the 192.xx and 172.xx private ranges. I'm surprised it doesn't also include the 10.xx private range as a third selectable option rather than giving a free field where unknowing users are likely to enter public addresses.

Thanks. The HH6 does something similar, but if you enter 10.0.x ranges, it says something like "illegal address". It would be useful to know if an existing user had tried.

Thinking about it more, it probably doesn't allow it as the Home hubs use the 10.XX range for BTwifi connected devices.

Re: Smart Hub 2 10.0.x.x

Just incase anyone finds this looking for a solution. My broadband goes live tommorow and i want to just swap one modem for another. My current WAN uses 10.15.0.0 range. Didnt want to mess about changing my LAN networks gateway

You can just console javascript to do this. (Instructions for running things in browser console)

I've saved the instructions in a GitHub Gist but also pasted below

https://gist.github.com/louisvarley/4e28eafd5e3cf108f2ecb809078f806b

 

This allowed me to have the SmartHub 2 as 10.15.0.1 no problems.

There does not appear to be any technical reason to not allow it.

 

Run the following in your browsers javascript console on the network page.

dhcpStart = "10.15.0.2";
dhcpEnd = "10.15.0.255";
gatewayIP = "10.15.0.1";
subnetMask= "255.255.0.0";
setCfg("ip4addr", gatewayIP);
setCfg("ip4mask", subnetMask);
setCfg("dhcp4s_eb", "1");
setCfg("dhcp4pool_s", dhcpStart);
setCfg("dhcp4pool_e", dhcpEnd);
setCfg("dhcp_change", "1");
sendForm("my_network.htm", "", "");
sending = 1;
statusChange("statusSavingChange","statusChangeNTBsaved");
glo_changeNeedSave=0;
var page = "http://"+gatewayIP;
setTimeout( function(){location.href =page;}, 3000);

Re: Smart Hub 2 10.0.x.x

This concept also works with the newer (business) SmartHub2, which BT tech said you cannot set your LAN address to a 10.x IP.  The Business Smarthub1, you can do this (after disable BTwifi first).

Saved me a lot of re-IPing
