How to change the LAN IP address of your Linksys Intelligent Mesh network

An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a unique identifier that consists of four sets of numbers from 0 to 255, separated by three dots. This is required by all devices in the network to connect to the internet.  By default, the IP address of a node is 192.168.1.1. With the latest firmware (e.g., the Linksys MX4200SH-SG with firmware 1.0.5.206190 or the Linksys MX2001SH-SG with 1.1.7.211289 and later), the new default IP address of some nodes has changed to 192.168.10.1.

If the upstream device uses the same IP address, the node will automatically use a different LAN IP address to avoid any conflict. To change its IP address, follow the steps below.
