NVG510 DHCP Reservation/ assign static IP to DHCP client

I'm having a hard time figuring out how to assign static IPs to DHCP clients, either through the web interface or via CLI.  Does anyone know how?

I do not believe the NVG510 has the ability to "Reserve" an IP address for a particular device. You could try messing with the DHCP lease time. The standard format for lease time is dd:hh:mm:ss, sometimes setting the lease time to zero will cause a router to give an infinite lease time. So, you could try setting the lease time to 00:00:00:00 and see if that works.

 

If messing with the lease time does not work, you will have to set your devices individually for static IP. I would narrow the DHCP pool in the NVG510 down to four or five addreses. So, if the DHCP pool is set to 192.168.0.100 starting address, and 192.168.0.199 ending address, change the ending address to 192.168.0.104. When you're assigning static addresses to your individual devices be sure to use an address that's in the same subnet, but outside of the DHCP pool like 192.168.0.99 or 192.168.0.106. Be sure the subnet mask is the same (255.255.255.0).

 

If you have any other questions, just ask.

AT&T and Motorola have decided, in their infinite wisdom, that you do not need this ability. The only solutions I've seen so far are:

  1. Smash your Motorola NVG510 with a hammer, cancel your AT&T U-verse service, and find a local provider who understands you want to configure your network your way, not AT&T's way.
  2. Put the NVG510 in Passthrough mode to use it solely as a modem and, at your own expense, but a router (preferably one that runs DD-WRT) that will allow you to configure your network your way, not Motorola's way.

Personally, I'm still debating which one to choose for our network.

I can't find a place to set a static/reserved address either. However, in 'device list', there was a Laser Jet printer and the allocation is 'static'. I managed to set my cell phone to a static address from its menus.

 

So the router is aware of the possibilty but just won't do it from its end?
