I’m using a 305 Balance with 6.1.3s2 build 1246 system.
The 305 is acting as DHCP server and balancer between
two WAN connections.
The LAN DHCP was using the default config:
Range: 192.168.1.10 - 192.168.1.250
Since we exhausted all IPs, I had to increase the range… and then the problems
What I did:
In Network > LAN:
- IP Settings:
- kept 192.168.1.1 as the IP
- changed the netmask from 255.255.255.0 (/24) to 255.255.252.0 (/22)
- DHCP Server Settings:
- changed the IP Range from 192.168.1.10 - 192.168.1.250 to 192.168.1.10 - 192.168.3.250
- changed the Subnet Mask from 255.255.255.0 (/24) to 255.255.252.0 (/22)
Clicked ‘Save’ and then ‘Apply changes’
And after that I could no longer access the admin UI.
The DHCP server was working though, did some tests and noticed that the
LAN computers were getting DHCP offers with the correct configs (new netmask and all).
But they could not access the balancer on 192.168.1.1 anymore.
I had to physically force a Factory Reset using the frontal led panel in the 305.
Any idea what might be the problem?
Any help is welcome
