I am currently trying to forward ports to 192.168.1.2, but found that the box would not let me do that because “192.168.1.2 is not a valid IP address.” I figured it was because the device was off, so it did not know about it, but then I noticed something properly weird.
In port forwarding (and I suspect it is the same in other modes, although I have not tried), .0, .1 and .255 are marked as “not a valid IP address”, which makes sense. However, all addresses between .0 and .10 included are considered invalid, which is illogical: why would the box not let me assign addresses in that range? Why does it seem hardcoded in the box itself?
Help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
