Remote Management On Internal Network Only

All,

 

I want to enable the remote management service on the Orbi router in order to use the android app.  I am not using the default router wireless network name and password and the Orbi app does not see the router.   There is also no way to configure a custom network.   I do not want to allow external access to the remote management.   Is there any way to set up internal access only?

 

When I set the from and to ip range to be in the 192.X.X.X range, the router complains that it is not allowed.

 

Thanks!

What FW is currently loaded?
What is the Mfr and model# of the ISP modem the NG router is connected too?

RBK50 & FW ver 2.2.1.210

 

As for the modem, it is a Motorola cable modem.  Why does that matter?

Checking for NAT on the WAN side of the Orbi. 

 

Management is kind of already open on the LAN side, as the Orbi and satellite can be access all the time on the LAN side. Opening up Remote Management is for WAN side access while your away from home. LAN side management can be accessed by the Orbi app from home or from remote locations.
