Speedtouch 716WL - DHCP help needed

Speedtouch 716WL with firmware 5.3.2.6.0.

I've added a new dhcp pool (192.168.10.66 - 192.168.10.127) but cannot delete the default pool to prevent IP addresses being assigned in the 192.168.1.1 range. Any help appreciated.

Speedtouch 716WL - DHCP help needed

To change the default you would have to change the ip address of the router or it wouldnt be in the right rangeand you wouldnt get the internet.

Why are you changing the range as its would need another subnet setting?

Speedtouch 716WL - DHCP help needed

Firstly, why do I want to do this? I carry a laptop between home and work. At work the subnet is 192.168.1.0/24. If I use the same subnet at home then when I take the machine to work, if the dhcp lease hasn't expired then I get an IP address conflict. So I want to use a different subnet address at home.

On my Speedtouch 716WL I have set a new IP address of 192.168.10.254/24 to be the device's IP address. I've then added a new dhcp pool from the same subnet. But there is no delete option available for the default pool so client addresses are still being given out in the 192.168.1.0/24 subnet. How do I delete the default dhcp pool (without resorting to CLI)?
