Change from default subnet 192.168.1.* on both router and satelite - how to?

I'm going to install an SRK60 this weekend. I'm new to this kind of mesh system with a router and (a) satelite(s).

 

Reading the documentation, I see that out of the box, the router will be on 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.1.250.

If I want to change these to another subset 192.168.2.*, say, router on 192.168.2.2 and satelite on 192.168.2.3, what is the advised operation sequence?

I mean, if I change the router from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.2.2, I guess after rebooting and logging in again, I will not see the satelite with is still on the 192.168.1.* subnet, right? Will I need to connect to it using an ethernet cable? Or will I be able to change both router and satelite in one step and have them both reboot together on the new subnet?

 

Not sure if my question is clear / makes sence 🙂 😉 ?

Hi @Jiheffe2,

 

You can connect a PC directly to the Orbi Pro router then access its web-GUI and changed its IP address to what you prefer. 

 

If the IP address of the Orbi Pro router was changed from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.2.2 then you will sync wirelesly the Orbi Pro satellite, the Orbi Pro satellite will automatically changed its IP address to the 192.168.2.x IP range once it successfully synced to the Orbi Pro router.

Thnx! Actually that makes sense, at least if the router is acting as DHCP server. Could have guessed it. Or is it using another method to let the satellite know the subdomain has changed?
