Wodafone Wifi extenders UX2190 - Set IP address?

I have an Ultrahub and 2 of the Vodafone wifi extenders UX2190.

 

I was looking to use the two extenders as wifi access points. They are both in access point mode. I have set up the wifi network details on each. However, there does not seem to be a way to set their IP addresses in the admin consoles. 

 

I think they both try to take 192.168.1.240, and as a result of the conflict my wifi speeds drop to less that 50 Mbps. When I turn one off, they get much closer to the 100 Mbps maximum, so I suspect its due to address conflicts.

 

Is there a way to select an IP address for these?

Set them to DHCP in the admin menu and assign a chosen IP address in the router.

Hi - thanks for the quick response.

 

In the 'Tools-Admin' menu for the extender, I only have an option to reset password. I don't have an option to select DHCP assignment. This is logged in as 'vodafone'. Is there a better admin login which exposes more options?

 

When I set a static IP address in the router admin for the extender (e.g. to 192.168.1.241) it did not apply the setting, and the extender continued to be on 192.168.1.240. The DHCP range is 50-200, so it isn't the router that is controlling the assignment to 240.

If you reset it - pen in the back, little hole - then use the default supplied on the sticker, then should be good to go.
