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.
Hate to be dense, but configure what? how?
" just configure with status address. As long as router sees it, the router won't give out that IP for dhcp."
So are you saying to configure the camera with an address of 192.168.1.10, and I should uncheck "obtain address by DHCP"??
And then in the router delete that static (reserved) address???
He meant static address. And on the device, i.e. not on the router. Since he and I don't know your device we cannot give you details. You seem to know how to do this from part of your last response.
It is also possible to go into the router and reserve a static address at least on the ActionTec routers after the device connects.
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.
