Title: There is no way to purge the list other than by factory resetting.
Post by: kpucci on January 10, 2018, 03:05:40 PM
This is also an issue with the DIR-880L.  There is no way to purge the list other than by factory resetting.  Subsequently when the Device Naming does not translate through to the Device Name on a DAP-1620 extender.  So frustrating.

It is. It's safe to update. You can always down grade.

Names of clients connecting to an extender or access point will not show up in your router. It doesn't work like that. The extender is the client of the router. The clients are clients of the extender. No reason for names to be transferred to the router.

The bigger issue is not the naming, but the fact there is a way to small limit on the number of DHCP reservations and that this table can only be purged via a FW upgrade or factory reset.

Did you upgrade to v1.08 yet?

You should be able to remove the reservation or naming by clicking on it. I agree 24 is not enough.

I will try to upgrade tonight and advise.  I am pretty sure 1.08 doesn't change anything according to other forum topics (see DIR-890L).

You should see grayed out device tiles on the list at the bottom. You should be able to remove them. This was fixed on the 890L.

That would be awesome.  Even just changing a device name takes up a DHCP reservations spot.

I do not have any greyed out devices.   It would appear it is still an issue on the 880L.

Some tiles will be greyed out for devices no long connected to the router if they were reserved. You can still select on the pencil and edit the tile and remove the reservation and save the change. The tile should go away then.

I just checked my 880L. I have one reservation there and that device isn't connected. I selected it, removed the reservation, saved and then the tile disappeared.

One suggestion for making reservations. Off load your IP addresses and save Reservations for those devices that really need to be managed by the router or need much internet access. Devices like printers, NAS, cameras, some phones and controllers and such, set a STATIC IP address ON the device out side of the default IP address pool. Static IP address start at 192.168.0.2 thru .99 and .201 thru .254. This will help save on the limited area for using Reservations.

Ya, I agree, D-Link seems to be the only Mfr that limits there reservations to 24. Been like this for a while.  :-\ Would be nice to see up to 50 maybe.  ::)

Thanks for the info on the greyed out devices. 

I agree with your suggestions on how to manage dhcp reservations, but i think everyone would benefit from an increase of this limit and a way to easily modify them.

For example, I currently have 9 connected devices shown as being active right now however if I try to modify one I get a message saying that: The maximum number of permitted DHCP reservations has been exceeded.

Later on in the day, this number of connected clients increases to over 30 and is not trivial to manage.

Try 1.08 and let us know.

And that's your choice as well. D-Link still have good stuff. Just have to be flexible sometimes. Why I use Static IPs a lot here. Makes sense and easier in the long run that way.

I have updated to 1.08 and still have the limit.  I now have to factory reset and start from scratch.

I use static IPs as well.  But the device limits me to only 25.

Ya, this doesn't fix the limitation on reservations. Should be able to remove reservations though.

I am not sure how to explain this but I will do my best. 

I have approximately 35 devices on my network.  Over half of them I would like to have DHCP reservations (i.e. static ip or give a custom name).  This is not possible due to the limitations as already dicussed. 

With that said, there is no way to ever view the dhcp reservation list and make changes to it so once you make a reservation, it can never be changed unless you do a factory reset.

I have never seen the grey items that you posted in your previous screenshot.

What browser are you using?

Grey tiles only appear for devices that have a reservation that was set on the router for that device. Any static IP addressed devices will appear as blue tiles however will not appear as grey tiles after they are disconnected from the router.

I am using Chrome 68.  As I noted, there are no grey devices at all.  I have 25 devices (based on the limit) that have DHCP reservations.

It might be the case that only a dozen of them are shown in the GUI at one time because they might be powered off or something.

Try using IE11 or FF. I don't use Chrome most of the time so I don't see these issues with IE11 or FF.
