Strange IP address assignments
Devices on my eero network have IP addresses that end strangely (to me).
All devices share the 192.168. preamble, for example, 192.168.X.yy. But the final character in the address, X, (separate from the device addresses yy) vary: e.g., 4, 5, and 6. I'm used to the X character being the same within the network. Is that correct?
Do I have a problem?
Hi RWZPHUD This is perfectly normal with eero. With the addition of so many IoT devices eero decided to use a larger subnet than was used to be the norm. Previously most networks were limited to around 240ish devices/IP addresses (from 192.168.7.2-192.168.7.254 for example). eero, some years back, made its default into a larger one (192.168.4.2 through 192.168.7.254). Those devices should all be able to talk to each other.
If you find a device that isn't talking to another device on the network try disconnecting and forgetting the network on that device and then reconnecting. The device might have an old subnet mask in from a previous network/settings and forgetting/reconnecting should get the eero's subnet mask in there.
Thanks. Any way to use this flexibility to segregate the IOT devices from my home network?
