This “router” is not a typical situation. I’m using my phone as a hotspot and can only configure a select number of DHCP options.
I can manage the limit on how many devices/clients can use my phone as a hotspot. I have to select from a radio-button list with the options: 2, 3, 4, 5 or 8.
I can specify the DHCP starting IP address. In this case, it begins at
When I’m connected via Wi-Fi to my phone, an
ipconfig /all command shows me that the default gateway is
192.168.6.1 and my IPv4 address is
192.168.1.148. I have the luxury of connecting another device to the phone and that device was assigned
I’ve tried connecting to
192.168.6.1, hoping for some sort of router setup page that I’m used to seeing, but there is no such thing or maybe it's just a matter of incompatable operating systems.
In summary, the “router” (phone) has an IP address of
192.168.6.1 and a DHCP server that begins at
192.168.6.106 and allows up to 8 connections. Normally, I would assume a range of
192.168.6.106 - 192.168.6.113, but connected clients are showing otherwise.
How can I figure out which IP addresses are set aside by DHCP for clients?
