V6 Box Static IP?

Is it possible to configure the IP of the V6 box to be static or does it now only support DHCP?

I use wired [ethernet] connection and would also like to change the DNS servers.

Thanks

Re: V6 Box Static IP?

There is no benefit to setting a static IP address for the V6 or using a different DNS for it.

Re: V6 Box Static IP?

You can fix the IP address of any device but the fact that you are asking about this leads me to believe that you do not know what you are doing.

Re: V6 Box Static IP?

Please don't troll my post.

I have managed switches on my network with multiple ISP connections, including business services with static IP addresses.

The question was simple: I just want to know how to set a static IP on the V6 box or whether it only uses DHCP.

Thanks

Re: V6 Box Static IP?

The question surely is what problem you are trying to solve.

Looks to me like not. Just had to fix it as reserved. Slightly irritating, but I'm just pleased control is all still good across port 31339

Re: V6 Box Static IP?

I can find no way to set the IP address manually.
