This happens when you set up a new and separate Google Wifi network connected downstream from an existing Google Wifi network, or when you connect a Google Wifi point to any third-party router that gives out DHCP addresses in the IP network range. Both of these scenarios will change your default Google Wifi point’s local IP network range to

This happens because your WAN port needs a different IP address from your LAN subnet.

Change local IP network back to

To switch the network back to, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Google Home app Google Home.
  2. Tap Favorites  and then Wifi  and then Settings  and then Advanced Networking. 
  3. Tap LAN.
  4. Change the “DHCP Address Pool” to the range you want, and tap Save. Example: to is the default range.
  5. Go back to Wi-Fi  and then Settings  and then Restart network. This will force reconnection of the clients and new IP addresses to be issued to each of them.

Note: If you only change the WAN IP address or disconnect from the “upstream” Wifi point (the one between your modem and second Wifi point), this will not automatically change the local network back to
