Changing internal network IP address range

Finally gotten my lazy busy ass down to implementing some of those stuff that I’ve always wanted to (like they say: eat your own dog food).

For tonight it was the changing and limiting of the DHCP address range served by my router to be a non-standard one (i.e. not in the 192.168.1.0/24 range), as one of the defences against CSRF attacks against the router.

The change turned out to not to be as smooth as I thought it would be, even though I had very few devices in the network as compared to an office one. Would keep this in mind as I think about/recommend this to others.
