TGH3000's IP address range ??

4: Newbie

I have a VF TGH3000 router. The router's IP address is, and all other addresses (e/g DHCP range) end in 0.XXX.

Plus a Netgear WGE game adapter, that has a factory default IP address of - you can only change this by connecting to the .202 address, and configuring it.

I connected the WGE to the router via ethernet, and tried to ping it.

Pinging with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from Destination host unreachable.
Reply from Destination host unreachable.
Reply from Destination host unreachable.
Reply from Destination host unreachable.

OK, why is the reply IP address ends .199, when I was pinginging .202?  I noticed the default DHCP range is .2 to .199, so wondered if there's a limit of .199 on other capabilities.

I tried a static DHCP, assigning IP address .202 to the WGE's MAC address. That made no difference.

I contacted VF support (in India). The support agent was useless, she didn't understand the issue and kept asking "Have you tried resetting the router?" even though  I'd told her I'd done this several times before calling. She refused to escalate my request to 2nd line suppport who might know more about the router's capabilities/constraints, as "clearly your device is at fault"...

However, even if I don't have the WGE connected, a ping still returns the results above. So I worry that the router IP range only extends up to .199, and that any request for an IP above .199 is converted into a .199 request. Otherwise why would I get the ping results above?

Does anyone else see the same issue ? Just trying pinging

What am I doing wrong ??


Yes, that's right. But no different to how you might configure a modern WiFi extender. I had to do something similar to "bootstrap" a WN3000RPv3.
