I have been using a LinkSysy router, which had router address of 192.168.1.1, distributing IP addresses 192.168.1.100 - 250. This router is getting old so I have decided to switch over to Airport Extreme. I have tried setting it up with the same addresses, and connected directly to the cable modem. for some reason it does not connect to the internet nor distribute IP address.
Does the Airport Extreme have a per-determined router address or can the user select between 192.168.1.1 or 10.0.1.1???
Does anyone have any suggestions on what I am doing wrong with the setup.?

cheers.

    The AirPort Extreme's default LAN-side IP address is: 10.0.1.1

    thanks for the information.

    Still is it possible to switch over to using a router address of 192.168.1.1, instead of 10.0.1.1??? Or is this something that is simply not possible?

    appreciate your advise.

    You could try this as follows:

    Open AirPort Utility - Click Manual Setup
    Click the Internet icon
    Click the DHCP tab
    Change the DHCP Beginning Address range from 10.0 to 192.168.

    This should assign an address of 192.168.1.1 to the AirPort Extreme assuming that you have it connected directly to a modem, not another router.

    Yes, you can do so using the AirPort Utility:

    AirPort Utility > Manual Setup > Internet > DHCP Beginning Address to "192.168.1.2" from "10.0." This will "force" the AirPort's LAN-side or router IP address to 192.168.1.1.
