How to Reset Smartbro Canopy using a Router

You've landed on this page because you Google searched the method on how to reset the Smartbro Canopy antenna using a router. The steps* to do that can be found here.

Shijirou, a testmy member, accidentally enabled the DHCP option in his Smartbro Canopy antenna thereby rendering his Smartbro Canopy configuration settings page inaccessible.

Here's how to reset the Smartbro Canopy antenna using a router.
  1. Turn off your router.
  2. Unplug the power of the Canopy antenna.
  3. Turn back the router on and attach its PC LAN cable to one of the LAN ports.
  4. Plug the antenna back to power and then plug its antenna LAN cable to one of the LAN ports of the router.
  5. Do an IPCONFIG in the command prompt.
    • In his case, the IP address was 192.168.1.102.
    • The settings in his Linksys router lists 192.168.1.100 as the starting IP for DHCP allocation.
  6. How did he find out the IP address of the canopy? By pinging the range of the IP addresses set by the router.
    • Since his IP address on the PC was 192.168.1.102, he guessed that the canopy's IP might be 192.168.1.101.
    • But he didn't get any reply so he tried pinging 192.168.1.100 and got ping replies and he was able to access the canopy through a web browser.
  7. Go to the DHCP setting in the Canopy configuration settings page and then disable DHCP. Save, then reboot.
  8. You can now attach the Canopy LAN cable directly to your PC's LAN card or on the Router WAN/Internet port. From here you can now access the canopy normally like you used to by using 169.254.1.1.
