How do I re-use my existing subnet?
I'm replacing an existing router (192.168.1.x), but the Eero picked a different address entirely when it went through setup (192.168.4.x).
I'd like to use the same subnet so that devices can continue to work while their IP leases expire
Hey Scott! In the eero App under Settings > Advanced > DHCP & NAT, select Manual IP.
Select 192.168.0.0 under "IP address prefix"
Under "Lease range" use the following for each field:
Subnet IP: 192.168.1.0
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Starting IP: 192.168.1.20
Ending IP: 192.168.1.254
This will allow you to use the 192.168.1.x address range like you had on your previous router instead of our default range that starts at 192.168.4.x.
