    If your AirPort Exteme is acting as the "main" router and you have chosen the 192.168.1.x range of IP address assignments, the AirPort Exteme will be assigned a default IP address of 192.168.1.1. 

     

    Apple will not allow you to alter the final "1" on this for the main router.

    Bob, another similar question but since you seem to be an expert, I thought I would reach out here...

     

    I am using my Airport Extreme in series with another router supplied by the landlord that I cannot seem to remove.  For some reason the way the place is set up removing this router causes a problem. 

     

    I believe the two routers are sometimes in conflict and I struggle to get a connection or maintain more than two devices connected at any one time.  Is there a way to change the range of addresses provided by the Extreme to 192.168.2.1 or something like that to avoid conflict?

    There should be an Ethernet cable connecting one of the LAN <-> ports on the landlord's router to the WAN "O" port on the AirPort Extreme.

     

    If this is the way things are connected, the AirPort Extreme should be in Bridge Mode.

     

    You did not mention what operating system you are using on your Mac, so we'll need that info to be able to tell you how to configure AirPort Utility for that type of setup.
