Recently got 2degrees fibre at home and they supplied a Fritzbox.
 want to configure Fritzbox to be same setup as the Netgear router
Current netgear N series router has a TPlink switch attached
TP Link switch has 4 cameras attached
Home security cameras have static IPs


i.e, the 202 and 203

Synology NAS static on


Now the default ip for Fritz when you plug it in is - This works and can access the config pages


BUT when I try and change the Fritz ip address to which should be same as what the old netgear was, it all seems to work in config.
After changing the ip to the switch shows up as and i cant access this address to alter the switch ip.
I also cant go to and get the fritz router page even though this is showing as its new ip, i have to use to access it again.


Because the switch is getting a higher ip and the cameras are static ip to 203 these are all disconnected as well.

Sounds like you're not changing the DHCP settings just the LAN IP.
