Hi gang,
If my internal network dhcp is set to provide ips in range from 2-200 and I want to set a couple of devices to get the same ip every time, should they be on the same subnet with their ip outside the 2-200 range or within it?
I.e. Dhcp is from 192.167.0.2 to 192.167.0.200 should I set the device to 192.167.0.32 or out of the range like 192.167.0.201?

I'm ticking the box that says 'always use this ip for this device'

Also, I could set it in the device that needs the static ip itself (out of the dhcp range), would that be better than in the router?
Thanks!

I personally like to set the DHCP range away from the static devices, for example if I will set it to 192.168.1.20-200 and then set my static devices to 192.168.1-19

 

I use my fritz to set the devices for me, but you can set it on the devices it self, I think it is "slightly" faster" setting on the device than it calling the router and being assigned, I'm open to being corrected.

I put them outside that range. I think I have DHCP on 20 - 200, and I put my key devices on 5 - 19. I don't assign static IP on the devices, I use DHCP reservations, so the devices with a specific MAC address always gets the same IP from DHCP. It's quick and easy to do on the Fritzbox.

Thanks to you both. On other routers I've worked with I've set reservations by MAC address. I'm not sure how the 7490 does it, the interface is a bit different. But I'm pretty sure you guys are both right, I think they're supposed to be set outside the dhcp range but within the network range. Thanks!

You don't have a reservation for DHCP in that case. I personally just tick the box to always use the same IP address.

At home I have very few devices I set static IPs from the router... The Amazon Fire TV, the printer and my desktop. Everything else is assigned by DHCP, so much easier to get it going.

I don't usually bother either, I had to do it at work for a few devices a few years ago... reserve an IP then assign it based on the MAC address when the device joined the network.

I just checked and the 'always use this ip' is ticked. :) I must've done it when I added them with the MAC.

I'm giving these assigned ips because they're the security cameras I just bought and I don't know yet what all I am going to have to do to set them up security wise.

Edit added linking words so sentence makes sense!
