Local Networks

Configure the LAN interface to set up local intranet networks.

Do not stop or delete the LAN (bar-lan) interface, which is the DHCP server of local networks and the cornerstone of Ethernet and Wi-Fi functions.

i. Configure IP Pool

To modify the DHCP configuration, you need to log in to the extender admin, go to Network > Interfaces on the top menu. Click Edit on the row of LAN (local area network).

Configuration > General

In the section of Common Configuration > General Setup, you can modify the extender IP address, netmask, gateway address, broadcast address, and DNS servers.




IPv4 address

IP address that the extender uses on the LAN network

IPv4 netmask

Netmask is used to define how “large” the LAN network is

IPv4 broadcast


Broadcast is used by DHCP clients to find and send requests to their respective servers

DHCP Server > General

Scroll down and find the section of DHCP server > General Setup, you can modify the DHCP IP pool and DHCP lease period.

The DHCP server can automatically configure the TCP/IP settings of connected devices and lease out an IP address from the available IP pool.

To disable the DHCP server, you can select the checkbox of Ignore interface.






The start of DHCP IP pool.

For example, if the extender’s LAN IP is and netmask is, a valid IP address should be in the range of […]

* is a special unavailable address.



Define the IP addresses the DHCP server can lease out.

Continuing from the above example: if the start address is and the server can lease out 150, available addresses will be from to

Lease time

12 hours

The duration of an IP lease. Leased out addresses will expire after the specified period and have to request a new DHCP lease.

If the device stays connected, its lease will be renewed after half of the specified amount of time passes.

For example, if the lease time is 12 hours, then every 6 hours the device will send a request to the DHCP server asking to renew its lease.

The lease time can be set in hours (h) or minutes (m). The minimal amount of time that can be specified is 2min (2m).

DHCP Server > Advanced

Under the tab of Advanced Settings, you can set up more configurations on the DHCP server.




Dynamic DHCP


Enables dynamic allocation of client addresses. If disable it, you have to input static IP address on the connected devices.



The DHCP force function ensures that the extender will always start it’s DHCP server, even if there is another DHCP server already running in the extender’s network.

*** When connecting the extender to another router via LAN cable, the extender will turn to Slim-AP mode and obtain the IP address assigned from another router. You will be no longer able to access the extender at

IPv4 Netmask


Overrides the LAN netmask, thus making the DHCP server think that it’s serving a larger or smaller network than it actually is.

DHCP Options


For example, with ‘26,1470’ or ‘option:mtu, 1470’ you can assign an MTU value per DHCP. You can add more options by clicking the plus symbol (Services sms gateway auto reply plus symbol.PNG) located next to the field.

ii. Physical LAN Interface

There are two physical RJ45 ports on the EZR13 extender. LAN Ethernet is bind with physical port eth0 by default.

You can also bind another RJ45 port eth1 to the LAN interface, which also takes the DC power from PoE adapter. If you switch the LAN interface from eth0 to eth1, the PoE adapter will lose the WAN function on the LAN port.

iii. DHCP Leases

To check the active DHCP clients, you need to log in to the extender admin, go to Network > DHCP & DNS, scroll down and find the section of Active DHCP Leases.

Static Leases

Static IP leases is used to reserve specific IP addresses to particular devices by binding them to their MAC address. It’s useful when having a stationary device connected to the network that needs to reach frequently, such as NAS, printer, camera, etc.

Field Name

Default Value




A custom name that describe be linked device

MAC Address


MAC address of the linked device

IPv4 Address


The desirable IP address that reserved for the specified device
