Shortly my Orcon router will change from Netcomm NF4V to Frtitzbox 7490.

There are a number of devices on the LAN . These are in IP range 192.168.20 1- 254.
I believe they are hard wired to these numbers.

Will they remain working when the router is changed, or will some changes be needed?

Thanks.

Probably not, most ISP routers are on default subnet of 192.168.1.0/24

 

If your devices are all statically assigned to 192.168.20.0/24 subnet you'll need to change either each device, or the router to be on the same subnet.

 

Not a hard job at all, just need to log into the router interface and change the router lan IP

Home Network -> Network settings -> IPv4 settings.

 

 

 

you will need to change your dhcp range, fritzbox defaults to 192.168.178.1/24

 

 

 

for ease of use, ild recommend static ips are set on the router side rather than client though.
