New Router, but NWM 5.5.9195.0-Pure0.beta shows new addresses loads old device web page.

Had a Belkin N+ Gigabit Storage router at 192.168.2.1 (it was bought as an emergency stopgap because my BEFSX41 finally died after 7 years of continuous service).  Have a WRT54Gv4 running Tomato 1.27 as a switch/AP it was at 192.168.2.54.

Got the E3000 and changed everything over to the 192.168.1.1 mask 255.255.255.192 networkWent in and changed the static devices (54G and Hawking Printserver). So far, so good. NM picked everything up fine and showed what I expected to see,

 

EXCEPT The 54G had a little funkiness with thingsThe View Details and Alerts for the 54G showed the static address properly as 192.168.1.56 (changed base octet because I changed the netmast on the 54G to 255.255.255.248 to limit number of wireless leases....).  Now, when I chose the "Setup or Manage Device", NM passed the OLD IP address of 192.168.2.54 to Firefox when I opened the web administration panel for Tomato.

 

Anyone seen this beforeIdeas on how to fix itI'm leaning toward disabling device, removing it from the map on all machines then putting back onlineWhat do you all think?

Hi Hal,

 

Network Magic 5.5.9195.0-Pure0 is not a Beta release, so if you go Help then to About Network Magic and it saids Beta, do a clean Reinstall of Network Magic on all computers.

 

To limit the number of Wireless Leases, is to not broadcast your SSID Signal Name. Use the Mac Filter / Network Filter / Network Lock after all Network Devices and computers are turned on.

thecreator,
Long time, no post....{g} On the version number, I dunno, maybe it was a hanging registry entry or something but that's what the version number shows in the about box.
The same number shows up without the beta designation in Revo Uninstaller, Windows Uninstaller and in ZiffDavis UnClean uninstaller, MS msicuu.exe Windows Installer Cleanup.  It also shows the "correct" number on another machine. So, some registry entry or config file or ???? After I fet the W7 machine built and bulked out, I'm going to give the 2.667G machine to the wife.  Will probably nuke and rebuild at that point.
As far as the WRT54G goes, I have it offline right now (until I get the HP Win7 box built and revise my network topology). With the E3000 set by default on high power on the radios, I don't need the 54G the same way I did with the Belkin to get wireless G on my Android phones, out in the back yard. When I put it back online, I think that there is a way to set it up as an AP only. Going to look at adding Radius or PEAP to the 54G (or if I find the right distro) on the E3000. Ultimate goal is to provide roaming at home *and* reduce radiated power on the routers.
