ConnectBox Change LAN IP

Hello.

 

I just received new router ConnectBox.

And I could not find how to change LAN IP address in the settings.

How can I change it from 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.1.1?

Is it possible to somehow edit backaped config to chenge IP there and than restore it?

I need to change to other subnet, because I'm using VPN to connect to my office where I have also 192.168.0. subnet and it becomes confliting with IPs.

 

Thank you.

Re : ConnectBox Change LAN IP

Good evening @troyanskiy and welcome to the friendly upc cablecom's community!

 

It is impossible to change the LAN IP of the Connect Box. You cannot choose a different IP. Only 192.168.0.1

But a new firmware is coming out. I don't know the features it is going to add,but why not this one?

 

Kind regards,

Michael

Hi @troyanskiy,

 

No, unfortunately not. I saw this news in the german part of the community. But maybe next month or March.

Re : ConnectBox Change LAN IP

Do we know for sure that the new firmware will fix this issue? And to what extent?

 

My previous router stopped working correctly and I just received the replacement. Having 192.168.x.1 forced on me was a nasty surprise and has basically broken a lot of my network configuration, including VPNs, firewall settings etc. This is the first router I've ever seen that was broken-by-design like this. UPC is essentially forcing me to buy another router, either to replace their box (Is that even possible?), or to at least protect my home network from its brokeness.

 

UPC: Your box is broken and it's making folks' lives difficult. Fix it.

 

 

PS: And once we get this fixed, can we also have a properly settable DHCP range?

PS2: Unmasked passwords in the router UI? Really?

Hi @thkala,

 

Unfortunately, I don't have any new info about a new firmware. You can replace the box, but the model and firmware will not change.

 

Regards,

Michael

Re: Re : ConnectBox Change LAN IP

unbelievable - it is to date still not possible to change the internal IP completely without limiations (only 192.168.-Network).

 

Since I was forced to change my plan ("plan not available anymore, jahdijah"), I was surprised when I got a new box. Despite of 25% power consumption increase (which may be attributed to the potential faster throughput of the new box), I only realized this limitation when I plugged the box in and started using it.

 

I was on the hotline for about 45 minutes and stated that I therefore want to terminate my contract accordingly since I require to be my own network adminsitrator at home - unless, it's a "managed service" - which it isn't. They took it and reverted the "configuration change" (instead of letting me go).

 

Anyhow, here I am now with my Technicolor-Router, happy as I was before.

 

I just can't believe I had to go through this hassle and a network provider is able to be so incompetent. But whatever... there's 5G coming and sooner or later fiber, so I'm getting options here...
