  • Yes, you are right, I am on the same page. I already try to change the IP Pool starting address from 192.168.1.xx to 192.168.10.xx but an error message at the bottom of the page displays 'Bad DHCP Pool Range' my current pool size is 32. – codefish06 Dec 22 '14 at 3:56
  • Did you specify a STARTING address of or 192.268.10.xx? – Tyson Dec 22 '14 at 3:58

You can accomplish your objective by changing the modem's LAN IP address. It's impossible to specify a DHCP pool that is not in the same subnet as your modem. But if you change your modem's LAN IP address to, your DHCP pool will automatically be in the 192.168.10.x subnetwork. You can then change the start and end addresses for the pool.

  • On ZyXEL router, LAN TCP/IP, DHCP Setup and DNS Server are all in one page, so, After modifying the IP Address to, I also modify the IP Pool Starting Address changing its subnetwork. Thanks! – codefish06 Dec 22 '14 at 5:17
