Question
How do I configure the LAN settings in the SBG6900-AC?
Answer
Just as the WAN interface of the SBG6900-AC can be configured for a customized setup, the SBG6900-AC also includes configurable options for the Local Area Network (LAN).  The LAN IP Address and DHCP range can be configured and modified to suit the needs of the network.  By default, the LAN IP address of the SBG6900-AC is 192.168.0.1.  This document describes how to change the LAN IP address and DHCP range of the SBG6900-AC.
 
NOTE 1: If the LAN IP address is modified to be in a different subnet (e.g. 192.168.8.1), the SBG6900-AC will automatically change the DHCP range to use addresses in that subnet.
 
NOTE 2: The subnet mask of the SBG6900-AC (255.255.255.0) cannot be modified.

 

Changing the Local Area Network (LAN) IP Address
 
  1. Launch a web browser, such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Safari.  Enter http://192.168.0.1 into the address box, and press the Enter key.  The Login page appears.

    NOTE: By default the LAN IP address is 192.168.0.1.  If the default address has been changed, enter the custom address in the address box.

  6. Enable DHCP Server:
    • If it is desired to have the SBG6900-AC give IP addresses to all of the devices automatically, leave this setting at Enabled.
    • If some devices are manually configured with IP addresses, but others are to receive an address from the SBG6900-AC, leave this setting at unchecked.
    • If there is another device on the network that will be the DHCP server, change this setting to unchecked.
    • If it is desired to manually configure each device with an IP address, change this setting to unchecked.
       
      NOTE: If the Enabled DHCP Server option has been set to unchecked, skip down to step 8.
  7. Starting Local Address - This setting classifies the first IP address to be used in the DHCP range.
  8. Ending Local Address - This setting classifies the last IP address to be used in the DHCP range.
  9. Lease time - This is the amount of seconds that a device will keep an IP address, if that device has received an IP address automatically from the SBG6900-AC.
  10. Click the Apply button in the LAN Network Configuration section.  The Warning box appears.
