If it doesn't work you could alternatively have the PC connected to the router via two adapters (e.g. wifi and cable) with one's IP set to the range of the new IP (e.g. 192.168.160.201), so if the first adapter doesn't get new IP, the router can still find the PC through the other one with static IP.
Another way would be to put primary and secondary static IPs.
Hi, I already tried that.... Directly editing the /etc/config/network....... But in the consequence I could access the router any more..... Only way to go back is a hard reset and starting all over again..... Any further suggestions..... Network settings? Disabling or enabling DHCP?
If the router goes unreachable on 192,168,1,1 then this suggests that the router changes it's IP but the DHCP server doesn't give the computer a new IP in the same range, and therefore they can't communicate.
when you get thus unreachable message, set a static IP for your computer in the same range, along with the proper subnet mask and see if you an reach or ping the router.
