Changing Gateway IP address and range
Hi, I just got an Eero Pro and am trying to figure out how to change my gateway IP address for my network to 192.168.0.1 as opposed to the default 192.168.4.1
As I want my IP addresses to be 192.168.0.x as opposed to 192.168.4.x
Have a question that semi ties into this thread, I think I know the answer, but going to ask anyhow in hopes that there is a work around.
We got this eero 6 thing from our ISP, they kind of insisted upon it, but gave it to us for free, so trying to work with it, ISP claims its only thing that will work on their fiber gigabit system. Previous system was traditional modem to router setup, we have a bunch of static IP address PoE cameras that are insanely hard to change the IP address on. None of these camera's are those silly RING, Nest or UFFY type, these are all HIKVision & Dahua running through Blue Iris.
The simplest solution for us would be to change the LAN IP address the eero is dishing out to match what our camera's are all set to, everything else on network is DHCP, its just the camera's that need static.

Once you select the the Manual IP area you are presented with 3 options for your network IP:
Was able to find this screen, however am I to understand those are the only 3 options for IP address changes? None of those work for our system, how do I specify the IP address we need. I just lol @192.168.0.0 that is just asking every hacker on the planet to hack or hijack your network.
gunn thanks for posting that these clowns don't have a web GUI, am trying to do this remotely over the phone explain it to my son, we kept typing in IP address and router interface would not pull up, was pulling my hair out trying to figure it out, now I know why we couldn't.
I am slight confused by the above. The GUI doesn’t seem to have somewhere to enter the gateway address you want. Does it assume .1 is the router of the subnet you choose?
Simply select the IP network range that you prefer to use. On the following screens, anywhere there is a '0' are the numbers that you enter for your preferences.
i.e.: 192.168.1.1, 192.168.2.1, etc.
Off-hand, I'm not sure. I believe I just left the defaults, turned everything off, and started one-by-one setting up the static IP's. Took pretty much all day.
Thanks, all. I found this thread to be very helpful. Until I entered my changes and tried to Save them. When I press Save, I get the following message . . . We couldn't update your settings
See attached screen shots. Any ideas what I should do now?
I had a similar problem - I have multiple Foscam wireless cams that were originally set to 192.168.1.XXX.
I'm sure there's a reason Eero started at 192.168.4.X, but that was a no-go for me.
I changed to:
IP Address prrefix: 192.168.0.0
Subnet Ip: 192.168.1.0
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Starting IP: 192.168.1.5
Ending IP: 192.168.1.254
Everything is functional and all of my camera's are back online!
A little clarification on some of the networking info.
I am looking at upgrading my current Samsung Mesh to the Eero Mesh. I am looking at the info you have on the routing setup and wether it will be possible to utilize subnetting for various vlans to separate some of the traffic into a more manage throughput.
I am seeing a lot of info on the 192.168.x.x network but I am interested in finding out if I can use the /16 or the /24 subnet mask. If you use the /16(255.255.0.0) you should be able to use the entire class B network address range (.1.0 - .255.255). If that is available then any of the subnets with the 192.168.x.0 should be routed through the Eero router. You could then have the devices actually use the /24 subnet to limit their contact between their own network and not the entire /16 network. If this works, then you could have the switch on the Eero connect and use the /24 subnets to actually route to the various vlan subnets without loosing the Eero routing of the entire network.
So, would this setup work:
Subnet: Mask: 192.168.0.0 : 255.255.0.0
Starting IP: 192.168.0.1
Ending IP: 192.168.254.254
Then have a smart switch that had the vlans setup for
IOT: 192.168.10.0 : 255.255.255.0
IPTV: 192.168.20.0 : 255.255.255.0
PC and NAS: 192.168.30.0 : 255.255.255.0
All of these would be going into the Eero Router on one port and be switched to the other ports on the switch going to the devices.
Does any of this actually make sense?
All good advice in changing to what really is a typical network of 192.168.1.0/24 setups. My challenge is that my broadband router is assigned 192.168.1.254 and my 3x Eeros are 192.168.1.1, 2 and 3 respectively.
However some of my old IP cameras only operate on DHCP and seem to be assigned the default gateway of 192.168.1.1 which causes a major problem when using applications such as Blue Iris because the machine that runs this software has a default gateway of 192.168.1.254. So frussssssttraaaating!
This is way too complicated. Why does the Eero always use the default gateway when for most UK installations you would have a separate router attached which is always designated as the default gateway?
I the same issue HOWEVER my ISP's gateway is 192.168.200.1 I have my eero connected directly to my ONT bypassing the ISP router/modem. How do I enter that gateway IP?
For those of you who are tired of using your phone to run the eero app, get a Chromebook. The eero Android app runs great on it and I can copy/paste from spreadsheets or emails into the app.
