Bipac 7800N DHCP static IP


[link to this post]
 
I've just taken delivery of a new 7800N which I'll be setting up tomorrow but after looking through the manual, I don't see any way of configuring it's DHCP server to serve the same IP address or a static IP address to devices on the network, as my Thomson TG585 allows me to.

Is it possible to do that with the 7800N and if so how, or do I need to use manual IP addressing on all my PCs and tablets?

pages 46-48 in the manual.

Configuration>WAN port

Fixed IP address = static IP address

Thanks, but that's not what I was asking about - the pages you've mentioned refer to the WAN IP address config

From web interface -> Advanced -> LAN -> DHCP -> Fixed Host link (at the bottom right next to Submit)

Input the IP address you want to be allocated and the MAC address of the machine (plus a name of your choice)

From memory, so forgive me if the labels aren't exact, but definitely there.

Thanks

Thanks very much, that'll save me a lot of hassle with reconfiguring my network when I replace the old router.
