Asus RT-AC66U and IP addresses

Greetings all,

We have recently set up an Asus RT-AC66U wireless router on one of our floors.

Our network is 172.16.0.xxx . When the ASUS is connected, it issues ip addresses 192.168.x.x .

Is there a way to keep the 192.161.1.1 lan address to access the admin panel and have 172.16.0.xxx addresses administered by our DCHP server?

Thanks in advance

AFAIK, no.
The router will server addresses from the same subnet as it's own internal IP.

I'll check the manual, just to be sure.

HTH,

Reading your post again, seems you have a different DHCP server on the network?

Then disable the DHCP server on the router and let the other server distribute addresses.

You'll need to change the gateway on the other DHCP server to the IP of the router.
