Change IP and range?

Thu Aug 21, 2014 12:00 am

I'm setting up a VOIP network with the MikroTik RB2011UiAS-2HnD-IN. I'm trying to use this as the primary router for our network to connect to our switch. Since the default is and our network is, I need to change the IP address of the router to Every time I try and do this I am locked out of the WebFig and cannot connect to the internet. I change the config to router, the address acquisition to DHCP, the Lan IP to, check DHCP and NAT, point the DHCP server at, and set the static DNS to What am I doing wrong?

It is difficult to say what you are doing wrong since you haven't provided enough information.

I am relatively new to Mikrotik gear and I may not be giving you the best way to complete the task you trying to perform but here is what I would do:
1. Use Winbox rather than Webfig and connect in Winbox using the MAC address rather than the IP address of the router.
2. On your first Login accept the default configuration.
3. Upgrade your router to the current routeros (v6.18) and then check in System->Routerboard to see if you also have a firmware upgrade.
4. When the upgrades are complete go to IP->Addresses and modify the default configuration.
5. Go to IP->DHCP Server->Networks and modify the default configuration
6. Go to IP->DNS and modify the Static IP
7. Go to IP->Pool and modify the default dhcp Pool.
8. Reboot your router and you should be done.
