    Both addresses are non-typical, but to make it work, all you need is to change
    one to match the other,
    eg: 192.168.15.1 -> 192.168.1.1 OR
    .... 192.168.1.240-> 192.168.15.240
    notice the change is only the third number.
    Both will need a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0

    did you try the manual?? normally, you would use your browser and access
    192.168.1.240/ (without the http://)
    login
    and then
    change its address,
    apply the setting (which should restart the device)

    to verify; attempting to access 192.168.1.240/ SHOULD timeout
    and accessing 192.168.15.240/ SHOULD prompt for a login again :)

    yep! If there's no login prompt, just move to the router and open its
    address and then move you net to the expander's address range
