how to change linksys broadband router subnet?

Hi:
I am trying to VPN and my company told me to change my router configuration so instead of the default 192.168.1.X, I should have something like 192.168.110.X.      How do I suppose to change that?  I am using Linksys broadband router.

Thanks!

Easy.. just type 192.168.1.1 into your browser's Address line and this should bring up a logon window..  The default username and password for Linksys is :  Admin / admin

This should bring you to the main page, where you can setup your internal LAN IP address scheme...  

NOTE:  I am wondering why you would need to do this though...???  hmmm

BTW:  if you need to set a static ip address on your computer, turn off DHCP on the Linksys router and just assign static addresses using the TCP/IP properties window...  Make sure you include the DNS server (from your ISP) and your Gateway (which is the address that you will be setting up above on your router..)  To find your current DNS server info:  

===============

Start > Run > cmd (OK)

ipconfig /all

==============

Sorry I may seem very stupid because I don't have much experience with routers....  

"This should bring you to the main page, where you can setup your internal LAN IP address scheme... "
Actually that's the question I was asking --- how do you suppose to do that? I did try the main page, and on the first page where it has the default 192.168.1.1 for router IP, I changed it to 192.168.110.1, and then I could not connect to the internet anymore.  By the way my ISP provider is Yahoo DSL.

The company just asked me to change the subnet to 192.168.110.X to avoid conflicts with other VPN users, which I don't really understand why.  I am giving 500 points now if anyone can give me a step-by-step solution to achive that.

Thanks!

Once you change the router's IP address to 192.168.110.1, release and renew your PC(s) IP information and make sure the default gateway on the PC(s) is now 192.168.110.1.

On your PC(s):

Start, Run, cmd

ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew

Did you enter the router's interface as suggested above?  If so, you should find the page where you change the subnet information (IP Address scheme) and it should be self-explanatory..  Do as JF suggests and refresh your IP address, or set a static one up as I mentioned above..
