I have reserved IP addresses in the "advanced settings">"DCHP" for two Windows 10 PCs in my home network.
The reserved rules appear in the "Reserved list" at the bottom of the DCHP page but the two PCs do not appear in the "Attached devices" list on the same page, despite the two PCs being switched on, working and talking to each other.
Why is this?
On our Hub 3 devices with a Reserved IP (or a static IP) below the DHCP range do not show up on the Connected device list.
If we set a Reserved IP in the DHCP range those are listed as a connected devices.
If you want to use a proper static address for devices it’s far far better to put the address in the device.
As @Tudor said above, the proper way is to set the IP addresses in the PCs instead of DHCP. The router will use them.
Would you set it below the starting address for the DHCP server(?) to prevent any potential clashes down the line if the lease expired when the device was offline?
