RAX70. Changing to 10.0.0.1

Router set to 10.0.0.1. Went into advanced settings and checked off router mode several times and saved config. Rebooted and still 10.0.0.1. Had no choice but to hit the reset and start over…. This day 2 of installing the router.

Why not just use access point mode if you're wanting dhcp disabled?

A sign that the RAX70 is behind another router and the setup process is trying to avoid  problems.

Or just go for AP mode as @plemans advises:

Or explain exactly what you are trying to achieve with this juggling trick.

Not running behind another router. Is connected directly to cable modem that has no router capabilities. Please update firmware so these modes can only be achieved if the end user chooses that mode…thru the UI menu

I never wanted to disable dhcp nor pass thru or as bridge. The router decided to do it automatically . Which should never happen unless done so thru advanced settings.

1. we're not netgear. 

2. if you're disabling dhcp and don't have another router connected, of course you're going to have issues. A modem only device needs a router connected thats handling dhcp/nat. If you're disabling that, what result do you think you'll get?

So why are you trying to disable the router bit of the RAX70?

 

What do you expect to carry out that function for you you on your network?

 

What is this anonymous cable modem?

 

And, as I suggested before:

 

"explain exactly what you are trying to achieve with this juggling trick".
