Local Networks

Configure the LAN interface to set up local intranet networks.

Do not stop or delete the LAN (bar-lan) interface is the DHCP server of local networks and the cornerstone of Ethernet and Wi-Fi functions.

i. Configure IP Pool

To modify the DHCP configuration, you need to log in to the extender admin, go to Network > Interfaces On the top menu. Click Edit on the row of LAN (local area network).

Configuration > General

In the section of Common Configuration > General Setup, you can modify the extender IP address, netmask, gateway address, broadcast address, and DNS servers.

DHCP Server > General

Scroll down and find the section of DHCP server > General Setup, you can modify the DHCP IP pool and DHCP lease period.

The DHCP server can automatically configure connected devices' TCP/IP settings and lease out an IP address from the available IP pool.

To disable the DHCP server, you can select the checkbox of Ignore interface.

DHCP Server > Advanced

Under the tab of Advanced Settings, you can set up more configurations on the DHCP server.

ii. Physical LAN Interface

There are two physical RJ45 ports on the EZR13 extender. LAN Ethernet is bound to the physical port eth0 by default.

You can also bind another RJ45 port eth1 to the LAN interface, which takes the PoE adapter's DC power. If you switch the LAN interface from eth0 to eth1, the PoE adapter will lose the WAN function on the LAN port.

iii. DHCP Leases

To check the active DHCP clients, you need to log in to the extender admin, go to Network > DHCP & DNSScroll down and find the section of Active DHCP Leases.

Static Leases

Static IP leases reserve specific IP addresses to particular devices by binding them to their MAC address. It’s useful when having a stationary device connected to the network that needs to be reached frequently, such as a NAS, printer, camera, etc.
