I provide support for a company where an end user has FIOS internet and TV service at home.
They need to be able to use a VPN, and the LAN on the end users network needs to not be 192.168.1.x for the VPN to work.
I have received conflicting information from two different verizon support reps so i figured maybe someone on here has some experience on this.
Does changing the lan subnet to be something besides 192.168.1.x break any TV functionality?
One rep told me it is not supported and the router being anything besides 192.168.1.1 breaks TV functionality.
Another rep said you could change it to 192.168.0.1 and the tv would work.
Has anyone sucessfully changed the LAN subnet and not have it break anything on the TV side of things?
No it will not break the TV data services. (VOD, widgets, and guide)
Only thing to verify after you make the change, STB's will need to have to be set on 192.168.0.100 - 108 range. The router should assign them to that range intellegently.
We have had other people post about it working fine.
I have my LAN set up with a 10.x.x.x address and everything is working fine.
My ActionTec reserves a DHCP Range of 10.x.x.100 to 10.x.x.150 for the Set Top Boxes. I made my DHCP Range from 100 to 160 and my other DHCP Devices get addressfrom 151 to 160.
I just had to reboot the STB's after I reconfigured the router.
