Address res does NOT allow you to set 0.xx

Address res does NOT allow you to set the second octet to 0 and the last octet to anything, and why?

Re: Address res does NOT allow you to set 0.xx

Hello Skoutariotis. Please read this article concerning IP address reservations on Core. Quoting from the article:

Unlike most wireless routers, Norton Core reserves the third octet instead of the fourth. This allows Norton Core to avoid using the IP address pool typically reserved for DHCP servers, network protocols, or the router. It also lets Norton Core maintain a separate subnet for quarantined devices without changing the functionality of the static IP address.

The 2nd and last octets are not allowed by design.

Question on that... If I setup another WiFi connected to the core, shouldn’t that be safe? All links will still be inspected by the core anyway, right?

I know if THAT WiFi is breached, everything in THAT network can be compromised, right? But not anything outside THAT WiFi, right?

You are most welcome as always. Answering your other question. If you use another router WITH Core make sure its "downstream", meaning directly connected to Core via one of its LAN ports. Core can't protect it if it is between your ISP device and Core.
