Is my technicolor DPC3216 modem resetting my Linksys router's IP ?
Lately, within the past 2 months, my router's ip has been reset to a 10.xxx.xxx.xxx number from my original 192.168.0.100 setting. This has happend 3-4 times now and at the time it occurs I'm not doing anything other than light surfing and in some cases I'm not even home.
I read on a linksys thread that this happened to someone else with a linksys modem and a cable modem that has wifi/router capability but that was turned off. (see here) My cable modem doesn't have that, it's just a straight cable modem.
My fix, once I discovered it, is fairly simple. I just use my phone to connect to the router wifi, login, and manually change the router's IP back to the IP i've always had it to.
Does anyone here think that somehow the cable modem could be related to the problem?
I've reset the router back to factory twice and set it back up, that didn't fix it and this seems to be very random as far as I can tell (no power outages, etc.)
One last note, I recently set my router's subnet from 255.255.255.0 to 255.255.0.0 to be able to "find/search" for new cameras I purchase with an 192.168.1.x IP address. Not sure if this could be related to my issue.
My router is a linksys WRT1900AC by the way.
