DIR-3060 Static IP address reservation
« on: August 16, 2020, 08:43:55 AM »

Hi, I am thinking of replacing my present router with a DIR-3060, looking through the manual I can see no reference to DHCP Reservations that will allow the router to provide a static IP address to a device based on its MAC address. The only reference I can find for a PC to have a static IP address, but that is assigned in windows not by the router. I have a number of devices around the house that I would like to assign static IP's to but it has to be the router that does it as the devices don't have that capability!

Is this possible with the DIR-3060, or indeed with any of the MESH capable routers?

Thanks

Lets make it clear for terminology and standard networking practice sake, that STATIC for networking means that a STATIC ip address is assigned and configured ON a device. IP Address Reservations is configured ON the router for devices.
  • Setup DHCP reserved IP addresses for all devices ON the router. Setup/Networking. This ensures each devices gets its own IP address when turned on and connected, eliminates IP address conflicts and helps in troubleshooting and maintain consistency for applications that need to connect as well as mapped drives.

Thanks for the reply and for correcting my terminology. So the router does have the capability for reserving IP addresses.

Thanks
