Let us know how it works for you.

Evgenovich:
Fixes a problem that I had with "connected devices."  Used to only show some, while the Lite mobile app showed all.  Now it shows all.

I'm having a problem with IP reservations.  Seems to be limited to ~24, and when I exceeded that and freed some up, I still get the same error message that I've exceeded the IP reservation limit.

Try IE11 or FF?
When you say freed up, how did you free up the reservation? I presume that you were cable to disable the reservation, save the setting then reboot the router?

It's recommended to set static IP addresses on devices that don't need much or any router management. Devices like, Cameras, NAS, controllers, printers and some phones are suggested devices to use for static IP addresses and not reservations. This help keep those devices that really need IP reservations available for that method.

24 has been kind of a standard for D-Link routers. I don't know the reasoning behind limiting to 24. I know there was a memory pool at one time that combined use and features and reservations was a factor. I don't know the details though and we might never know. You'd think they could increase the limit since most average households have anywhere from 10 to 30 devices.  ::) However again, some devices don't need router management thus don't need a reservation.

Thanks for the reply Furry.

I'm in Colorado.

Using Chrome as browser.

I freed up the reservations by going to CONNECTED CLIENTS and disabling RESERVE IP in all but 10 of my listed devices (should allow 24).  That cleared the problem for most of the devices--I could then add more--except for two--a Samsung tablet and a Samsung S5 phone.  For those two I get the same message, "The maximum number of permitted DHCP reservations has been exceeded."  Interestingly, I get the same error message if I just try to change the names of these devices, leaving the RESERVE IP status as disabled.  I can manage to rename it only if I put it into Parental Controls.  The problem is the same whether I make the ranges of the devices with RESERVE IP enabled inside or outside the range of DHCP-assignable addresses in the router. 

I took your advice and created STATIC IP addresses for two printers, vice DHCP reservations.  I programmed those printers with static IP addresses outside of the DHCP range of IP addresses set in the router.  But I could do that for only two of my devices.  My four Google NEST cameras and three Google CHROMECAST devices don't allow setting static IP addresses.

Another quirk I've noticed is the router does not allow selecting channels in either the 2.4 or 5 GHz bands (that I've found, anyway).  On the 5GHz high band, it puts the signal right on top of the only other 5 GHz network in the neighborhood (channel 157).

One more quirk. I set up a GUEST ZONE network then disabled it.  The router continued to advertise the SSID on 5GHz, so I tried to select it from my cellphone which said it was disabled.  I resolved that issue by renaming the GUEST ZONE network, but leaving it disabled (without enabling it even for a short while).

I'd like you to try using IE11 and or FF and see if you have the same behavior. What is the version listed for Chrome?

You could leave the devices that can't be set to Static as a Dynamic address and not reserved. NEST controllers and chromecast don't need a static or reserved address. Did Google by NEST?  ???

If you disable Smart Connect, you should have drop down menu selection to manually set channels.

I saw an odd behavior like this on the DIR-880L: http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=59562.msg269587#msg269587 I'll have D-Link review this.
