Why did my local IP network change to 192.168.85.0/24?

This happens when you connect a new Wifi point to an existing Wifi point. Or when you connect a Wifi point to any router that gives out DHCP addresses in the 192.168.86.0/24 IP network. Both of these scenarios will change your Wifi point’s local IP network to 192.168.85.0/24.

This happens because your WAN port needs a different IP address from your LAN subnet. What’s the difference between WAN and LAN?

Change local IP network back to 192.168.86.0/24

To switch the network back to 192.168.86.0/24, factory reset your Wifi point.

Note: Changing the WAN IP address or disconnecting from the “upstream” Wifi point (the one between your modem and second Wifi point) will not change the local network back to 192.168.86.0/24.
