Lan IP setup Thompson TG585v8

Hi guys is it possible with this router? ive been through all the settings and for the life of me i cant find a way to do it. With my old Netgear router it was a case of going to lan ip setup but i cant find the equivalent on the Thompson.

You can indeed make this change, but agree it does not always look like the most obvious thing.
First, it depends if you intend to use DHCP after the change or not. If you are, do the following first.
1: Login to the route
2: Select Home Network from the left
3: Select Interfaces on the section that opens out on the left.
4: Click the LocalNetwork at the top of the tree in the centre of the screen
5: In the top right, select Configure
6: Untick "Use DHCP" and click Apply
7: Perform step 5 again
8: In the DHCP Pools section, select the edit link (will not be present unless you have performed steps 6 & 7).
9: Ensure you set the "Start Address", "End Address", "Server", "Gateway" values ("Server" & "Gateway" should be the values you want the router to be) and Apply at the bottom
10: Again perform step 5
11: Tick the "Use DHCP" checkbox and Apply
To change the routers IP, follow steps 1 through 5 above, then
6: In the IP Addresses section, select Edit next to the existing IP (do not edit or remove the 10.0.0.138 item)
7: Set the New IP of the router, there should be no need to edit the Mask
8: Apply this
You will note it looks like the router has failed, this is normal, simply because the IP has changed and your PC is not connecting to the correct IP.
Either force a new IP by resetting your network adaptor if using DHCP, or manually change your computers IP. Your router will now be on the new IP.
One thing to note. I see this every now and again. Once the IP has been changed, your router may persistently ask you to login, this can be resolved by leaving it for 5 minutes and rebooting it. It will remain on the new IP and should stop persistently asking you to login again.

Thanks for the reply P.
quick question, could i instead add to the dhcp pool? The reason i asked is because i use my android phone as a launcher and remote for xbmc and other programs.

If you mean by changing the actual range of IPs that can be assigned out by DHCP, there is no reason why you can't.
The current configuration allows for you to assign static IPs manually to devices upto .61, as these are outside of the assigned range and ensure no conflict is going to exist.
