MR2600 default IP address changes when connecting another router

QUESTION:

When I connected another router to the WAN port of the MR2600,  the default IP address  of the MR2600 automatically changed from  192.168.1.1 to 192.168.0.1? Why?


ANSWER: 
  

The MR2600 is smart enough to avoid IP address conflicts.  If the device that you connect to the WAN port of the MR2600 is in the same subnet of 192.168.1.x,   it will automatically change its own LAN IP to 192.168.0.1 to avoid any address conflicts. 

An important note:  To get it back to the default settings of 192.168.1.1, you will need to remove the WAN connection first and then use a paper clip to push the factory reset button for 8 seconds.
