Issues with Luxul switch and Eero
I have a Luxul AMS-1816P Series switch that I am adding to my network. I was trying to put it in line with eero (eero being the DHCP server) but I set up the Luxul switch with a static v4 IP address (192.168.4.100) and I cannot access the switch for configuration as the eero is giving it an IPV6 address even though I have that turned off. Suggestions? I need to be able to access the luxul for making changes to the VLANs on that switch for sending video over the network (Crestron NVX).
Hi there, alexands . I had a couple of questions to make sure I'm on the same page here. Are you unable to access the switch using the reserved IPv4 address you set up, regardless of whether it's showing up in the eero app or not? If you haven't already, I'd like you to try accessing the switch using the IPv4 address just to see if it works out.
Also, is the IPv6 address the only one showing in the eero app, and did you assign the IPv4 address through the eero app?

I assigned the IPv4 address on the switch, not the eero app (I kind of hate the app to be frank as it is so limited in what I can configure). I can reach the switch using the IPv4 address when not connected to the eero network but if I plug the switch into the eero I can no longer reach the switch. The eero only shows the IPv6 address for the switch once it is connected.
I have now gone into the app and set a reservation for the matching IP address on the switch (the switch requires a static IP address to be set at configuration). I have rebooted the switch, the eero app shows it as online yet I cannot reach the switch for configuration. If I remove the link to the eero and set a static IP on my computer I can reach the switch and configure it.
Any suggestions? Can I shut the eero off from being the DHCP server? If so, how? I will have the switch manage the network if I have to.
