I’m trying to completely reset my ps5 and Smart hub 2 but it keeps giving me the same IP address on the ps5 after I’ve done this.
Any reason it would keep doing this?
it’s making me think it hasn’t factory reset at?
If you mean the local LAN IP address, then that is unlikely to change, as its linked to the physical MAC address of the ps5. The ps5 will be retaining this.
A full factory reset of the home hub, and a factory reset of the ps5 may result in a change, but its not guaranteed, as the ps5 network card may still keep the address, if its not requested a new one from the home hub.
Why are you trying to change the IP address anyway?
Thanks @VeteranISPUser , very strange. Maybe all your individual devices were holding the IP addresses internally but for both my console and hub to be factory reset and still hold all the same IP's I cant understand why!
Anyone else able to shed some some light ?
It doesn't really matter why but it is something that I want to understand as something is holding on to this information and I cant understand what.
If I factory reset both the ps5 and router how could it possibly keep the same IP address every time?
