Help with USG install

Hi,

I have a network using 192.168.0.1/24 where I have a cloud key and 2 AP's installed. I would like to install the USG to replace my existing router and keep the same setup. Since the USG defaults to 192.168.1.1/24 I need to know how to change that. I have quite a few static addresses for printers and such and this is why I want to keep the same.

Looking for how to make the change, thanks.

That's the proceedure I used to configure my USG before replacing my Asus router. I changed the subnet to 192.168.x.1 and dropped it in place. I already had the Controller setup on my computer so adopting and provisioning was all done with a couple clicks of the mouse. There's very little you need to do on the USG, essentially just set the subnet you want, save it, and then put in place. The Controller software does the rest.

Re: Help with USG install

You would go to the admin page, it is straight forward to change it. You can do this on install of the USG or after the fact.

I would recommend not to use static IP addresses, I would use reserved IP addresses instead. The way Unifi implements reserved IP addresses isn't very good, but it works.

You can do it several ways but I think the easiest would be to put the USG beside your computer, use a short ethernet cable to plug your computer into the USG LAN port. Log into the USG at 192.168.1.1 with username ubnt password ubnt, click on the maintenance tab and change the LAN IP to 192.168.0.1 and save it.

 

Then just install the USG in place of the old router, power cycle the modem to renew the settings, then everything should be on 192.168.0.x subnet and you're good. Using the Cloud Key Controller software, you adopt the USG, and the Controller will automagically push the config to the USG and you're done.

I have a few "static" IP addresses set up in the Controller software such as my switch, AP, CK, printer, etc. You may know this, but just remember to set your subnet and DHCP ranges correctly in the Controller software so you have unused IP's for your static devices. For instance, 192.168.1.1 - 192.168.1.20 reserved for static IP's so you would set DHCP range 192.168.1.21 - 192.168.1.254 to dynamically assign connected clients.

Re: Help with USG install

I have set my laptop for 192.168.1.122 and plugged into LAN1 of the USG. When I try to access 192.168.1.1 the screen comes up and says no internet found. I can then retry or edit config. The config it wants to edit is the WAN side. It won’t let me go any further.

Re: Help with USG install

Ok I think you're not clicking the left buttons? Click on Configuration and then you can change the LAN subnet as per below:

Also after you have changed and saved the USG settings subnet  192.168.0.1 [as you said earlier]. Put the USG into place and power cycle the modem at the same time so both restart. After the network comes up, you should be able to continue normally...

And at this point you should be able to adopt the USG into the Controller on the Cloud Key...

Re: Help with USG install

I was able to SSH in and change the IP.  Now I just need to find a time when no one is here so I can knock the network down to actually install the device. 

Thanks for all the help.

Re: Help with USG install

After much back and forth I was able to install the USG into my network at 192.168,0,1.

Now I just need to configure all the my reserved IP addresses so everything runs smooth.

 

Thanks for all the help.
