After you do this, the network address of the switch will change, and the connection with the PC will be lost. Remember to set the IP address of the PC to the same network address range (for example: 192.168.0.100) as the switch.
After you change the switch settings, remember to save them. If you turn off the power without saving the switch settings, all the settings you changed will return to their previous values. Since we changed the IP address, let’s save the switch settings.
When you change the settings, the word “Save” will blink at the top of the screen. Click “Save” to open the following page. Make sure that Source File Name is set to “Running configuration” and Destination File Name is set to “Startup configuration”, and click “Apply”.
