The “fix” was accidentally discovered when I wanted to teach my kid how to play Counter-Strike, the router is giving us high latency on a local network and another device seems to have some problems connecting to the modem/router so I decided to play with the settings.
I think that I have come across of a “bug” in the firmware of the indoor modem that could increase the maximum number of connections that the modem/router can accept.
Take a look at the screenshot below;
As you can see the leased IP addresses are from 192.168.15.2 up to 192.168.15.8 with a total of 7 devices.
To change the maximum number of devices that can connect to your device follow the steps below;
- Onced login to the GUI click on DHCP Server.
- Remove the check mark on Enable DHCP Server to disable it then enable it again by putting the check mark back.
- You should now see the starting IP Address and Ending IP Address, just change the ending IP address depending on the number of maximum devices that you want to connect.
- Click apply and you should be good to go.
