Every Bigleaf router has a local configuration page where you can edit the router’s WAN and LAN port settings. You typically use this local configuration page to make WAN port updates manually when individual Bigleaf routers have no internet access and cannot communicate with the Bigleaf infrastructure. This can happen when WAN port updates are required after the router was provisioned due to ISP changes, but before initial installation.
Important Note: Before making any changes in the local Router Configuration page, make sure those changes have already been made to the Site Configuration in the Bigleaf Web Dashboard, typically by another administrator, or using a different internet access point. Otherwise, once internet connectivity is restored to the router, the configuration in the Web Dashboard will overwrite local changes.
Access the router configuration page
- Use a computer that’s physically connected to the LAN port of the Bigleaf router. There is a LAN-side only network 198.19.8.0/23 with the IP address 198.19.8.1 assigned to the router LAN bridge. Assign your computer or to use an IP address from this network, with the subnet mask 255.255.252.0.
- On that computer, open a web browser and browse to http://198.19.8.1
- Enter admin for the username, and admin for the password.
- The Router Configuration page lists ports with their associated IP configuration, VLAN, and PPPoE credentials. If a port is configured for DHCP, it will show the port as DHCP with the other fields blank. Make changes as needed.
- When finished making changes, select Apply Networking Changes and then select Submit.
