Belkin F5D7230-4 DHCP Range Error

I have a Belkin wireless router, model F5D7230-4 6000 router with firmware version F5D7230-4_US_8.01.07. I found that oftentimes I couldn't ping the router from a system. I finally realized the source of the problem today. When I clicked on LAN Settings, I saw the router had an IP address of with a subnet mask of, yet the system from which I couldn't ping any other system connected to the router and which had no network access, had an IP address of assigned via DHCP from the router. With a subnet mask of, the host address range would be through, since the router is using and is the broadcast address. Yet when I attempted to change the IP address range the router used for its DHCP assignments, it kept resetting the IP pool ending address to after I set it to I would set the starting address to and the ending address at then click on Apply Changes. The router would reboot and I would find it had reset the last address to be assigned by DHCP to again. I tried setting the ending addres to 5 with the same results.

So I changed the subnet mask to, which provides an address range of 16 addresses (14 usable for hosts, since is the subnet id and is then the broadcast address). I then tried setting the ending IP address for the DHCP server built into the router to 7. When the router rebooted that address was back at 12 again. This time I just left it, since at least this time all of the addresses the built-in DHCP server would assign will be within the subnet range.
