Bridge Mode - Static IP Address of Connected Wired Devices
« on: February 20, 2018, 09:55:34 AM »

I have a Netgear WNDR4500 (N900) wireless router setup with a subnet of 192.16.1.1.  I have the D-Link DAP-1525 operating in bridge mode to connect two DVR devices that do not have wireless so they connect to the DAP-1525 through its ethernet ports.  On the two DVR's I've setup static IP Addresses that are outside the router's DHCP range (192.168.1.40-192.168.1.100).  In the router I reserved those IP addresses with each of their corresponding MAC addresses.  I have the DAP-1525 setup as a static IP address 192.168.1.6 with its MAC and IP address reserved in the router.  It is running firmware 1.02.  When everything is connected and I check the list of connected devices in the router, it only shows one of the DVR's as a wireless device with the MAC of the bridge showing next to it.  It does not list the other DVR.  The one not listed has connection issues.  How do I get the two DVR's connected to the bridge with Static IP address and have them both function?  Thank you.

Do not use STATIC IP addresses for the DVRs. Just use Automatic Obtain IP addressing. Or, if you want, static IP addresses ON the DVRs, set them up ON the devices. DO NOT set IP address Reservations for the same IP addresses on the router. You can't do it with Reserved and Static at same time.

Doesn't work like that. Either set Reserved IP addresses ON the router for the DVRs and set them to Automatic or Set Static on the DVRs and NO Reservations ON the router.

Best Option IMO is set automatic with DVRs and IP address reservations on router. Set DAP for STATIC out side of router pool. I have DISH JOEYS, one connected to a wireless bridge as well. They are all set for automatic. The bridge is the only device with a STATIC IP address out side of the default IP address pool on the router. Mines set for 192.168.0.11.

Thanks for the information.  I removed the IP/MAC reservations in the router.  I left the static IP address information on the DVR's.  I can ping both DVR's with no lost packets.  However on the attached network devices in the router it shows only one DVR on the wireless device list with the MAC address of the DAP-1525.  The other DVR is not shown.  The DVR not shown does not connect properly to the services on it.

I can try the opposite method you mentioned to set the DVR's as automatic connection and then reserve the IP/MAC addresses in the router.

Try Automatic.

Seems like something is getting blocked. I presume the 2nd DVR works if directly connected to the main host router?

I am going to try this weekend to reserve the MAC addresses for the two DVR's in the router with an IP address in my DHCP range and then set the DVR's network connection to automatic.

The DVR's work when hard wired just fine.
