I have noticed that my Verizon FiOs G1100 router IP address is the same as my XR500 (192.168.1.1)

 

This seems to be a problem as my G1100 cannot receive an internet connection from the XR500 when it is bridged. 

 

Is it possible to change the IP address for the XR500 so that both devices can work together?

 

I tried doing this earlier and changed the IP Address from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.10 under the LAN TCP/IP Setup but all it did was completely disconnect my router and left me unable to access it at all.

change your XR500 ip address to someting like 192.168.2.1 and make sure the ip assigne range on the XR500 matches the new config.......example............192.168.2.100 - 192.168.2.254 that way the router will be on a totally different subnet and any devices that connect on your network will get an ip address of 192.168.2.xxx

How come when I changed it to 192.168.1.10 it suddenly broke my router? My only thought is that that IP was also a device I had connected but other than that I'm clueless. Last thing I want to do is make the same mistake and essentially tank my router again.

Probably because it would seem like DHCP IPs were given out by the verizon router when actually coming from XR500 so would have caused confusion or would have broken DHCP altogether therefore not giving your device an IP address. Either way just change the 3rd number as BD said

you cannot have 2 routers giving out ip's in the same ip range on the same subnet. That is why you alter the 3rd set of numbers to create a totally separate subnet to avoid ip conflicts which is what you was experiencing.

Okay so just to double check. I make this change under the LAN Setup page and simply change the IP to 192.168.2.1 or something and then Starting IP 192.168.2.2, Ending IP 192.168.2.254. Would that seem reasonable?

 

Do I need to do anything with IP Subnet Mask or RIP Direction/Version?
