I change the router and internal IP address from 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.8.1 but the DNS records in the DNS server did not change, is there a way to update then to the new address (I can’t connect from windows explorer to other machines on the network by their computer names \\name)

the machines have to reregister, and get a new IP

ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
ipconfig /registerdns

or just reboot if they are all DHCP, assuming you updated DHCP with the new network info

This worked.

Is there a way to do it to all devices on the network or the only way is to do it on manually on each device?

not really, how many we talking about?  You could reboot the switch or shutdown and no shutdown the interface?

If I understand you correctly shutting off the switch will do it to all connected devices, correct?

yes, I am not sure they they will re-register with DNS, but they will at least have a valid IP
