Static DHCP Leases
« on: August 15, 2016, 08:14:04 am »
I have set up several devices with static IP addresses, or so I thought. This morning I found that one of my devices that was assigned a static IP address, had a different one. This, of course, caused all kinds of issues. I have no clue as to why it was reassigned a new IP address. The only thing that I can see is that on the Static DHCP Leases screen the MAC address had hyphens xx-xx-xx-xx-xx; rather than colons xx:xx:xx:xx. There was no error message when I assigned this IP address earlier with the MAC address format with hyphens. Should this make a difference? Otherwise, why would the IP address be reassigned, when I had set the static IP addrss. I am on firmware R089.
Thanks,
Elliott

We have tested with colon and hence, please do use only colon for now.
