WAF Tools - IP address blocking causing issues having to keep adding new device IPs

Answer these questions to help the Community help you with Security questions.

Have you searched for an answer?
Yes

Describe the issue you are having:
I use the WAF Tools to block access to my admin area to listed IP addresses only.
However, I can only find device IPs which regularly change when it’s restarted etc meaning I keep having to add the updated IP addresses to enable user access to the site and avoid the access blocked page.
Is there a way to find an IP range for a device or a different way to restrict access to specific devices? I’ve tried the support site and Google but can’t work it out!

What error message or number are you receiving?
N/A

What steps have you taken to resolve the issue?
Tried adding private IP address for device.

Thank you!!

Use a different mechanism than IP address such as Cloudflare Access.
