I configured a dlink wireless IP camera on my network the following way: Camera to receive an IP address via DHCP. WPA2 selected and pw was entered.
On my actiontec MI424WR-GEN3I I set a reserved (static) address for the camera for the wireless mac code as 192.168.1.10.
I restart camera and routers, and in the router connection list, I see the camera with a lease, and everything works fine.
Comeback later and the camera does not work, check the connection list and see the lease has expired!
What causes this and how can it be fixed? I want the camera to have a static address....I can configure the camera to have a static address, but would that fix it? and if so, what do I need to do on the actiontec side???
just configure with status address. As long as router sees it, the router won't give out that IP for dhcp.

Default admin id is "admin" and password should be either printed on a sticker on the router, or for older routers be the router serial number. If you can't get in you can double check the password on the verizon website, your FIOS TV, or reset the router.
click on the advanced tab and yes to warning message
select IP-distribution distribution
select connection list
find the device in list and connect the middle action icon (edit)
click the box for static lease type and then click apply
I would then still go into to the device and unclick the get address for DHCP. All DHCP address are meant to expire, and the devices are suppose to regular check for and renew the address within a reasonable time.
