How do I set my gateway eero IP address to 192.168.1.1

I have purchased a 3-pack of Eero Pro 6 routers

I am replacing an existing network, with a complex configuration and a couple dozen reserved IPs.

I need to set the Gateway IP address to 192.168.1.1 to match the existing network

how do I do this?

  • greg12 Thanks for posting! This can be accomplished in the DHCP & NAT section of the Network Settings menu. This will not be able to be accessed until after the Gateway is setup in its default configuration. You can set the desired IP scheme, hit Save, and allow the reboot to enable the change.

  • Thank you for the quick response! I had checked that, and in that setting I see that I am able to set it to:

    192.168.0.0

    10.0.0.0

    172.16.0.0

    but I do not see an option to allow me to configure it to 192.168.1.1

    • greg12 Ah, I see the confusion. That first selection only locks in the first two section of the IP Scheme. From there, you would set Subnet IP as 192.168.1.0 , set the Starting IP as 192.168.1.20 (or anything higher than 1) and set the Subnet Mask and Ending IP based on the size of network you intend to use.

  • Thanks. here’s what’s happening:

    1. I update the Subnet IP to 192.168.1.0 (from its default 192.168.0.0) and click Save.

    2. It prompts me “Reboot Required: W@e need to reboot your eero to apply the new settings…” and I click Reboot

    3. It immediately pops up a dialog “We couldn’t update your settings: We ran into an issue updating your settings. Please check to make sure yuo entered the right values and try again”

    • greg12 Do you also update the Subnet Mask, Starting IP, and Ending IP? If not, ensure you are updating each of those to create a valid IP setting. If you are already doing so, give our team a call and we will be happy to check what may be preventing the setting from saving (being in Double NAT where the upstream router is using that IP scheme already is the most common culprit, but we can investigate other options as well).

    • greg12 Just to elaborate on what would generally be used, Subnet Mask would be 255.255.255.0 Starting IP is 192.168.1.20 and Ending IP would be 192.168.1.254

  • This is something that has to take place for your router to make the right connections.
