Lease Time

HH5B latest firmware, was just the same before 01239

 

I have my lease time set at 18 days.

My DHCP data for my 3 devices are as follows.

17.00 on 18th
17:20:47:45
17:20:35:01
17:20:47:44

21.00 on 18th
17:16:52:41
17:16:39:57
17:16:52:40

12.30 on 19th
17:01:20:38
17:23:54:39
17:23:49:45

20.50 on 19th
16:16:58:52
17:15:32:53
17:15:27:59

14.30 on 20th
15:23:13:33
16:21:47:34
17:23:41:36

 

It never gets to 18 days!

Suggestions please

Don't use DHCP, give your devices static addresses.

Re: Lease Time

Unless I'm incorrectly reading the numbers you've included, the time is counting down and doing what is expected.

 

At 17.00 on 18th there's a client with a lease of 17 days 20 hours 47 mins and 45 seconds remaining of its lease. Four hours or so later you see the same device with a remaining lease of 17 days 16 hours 52 mins and 41 seconds.

 

At around nine days i.e., half the lease period, you'll see the clients lease time go back to ~18 days and then start decrementing again.

Re: Lease Time

It is a bit confusing I know.

Look at the last figure on the first data set (18th) = 17:20:47:44

Now the last figure on the last data set (20th) = 17:23:41:36

That is 2 days'ish and the figure has increased.

All over the place

 

edit. it has been like this since before 0.07.06.01239-BT  | Last updated 10/3/2017

Re: Lease Time

So what is the device and was it powered off or taken away from your home in between those two dates? If it had been powered down or taken away from home it would then undertake a DHCP discover etc., when powered on or returned back home, and so the renewed lease would start counting down again from the full 18 days.

Re: Lease Time

I think there is a problem with the HH5

I went with Static IP and could not select the 'configure manually' radio button.

Have now done a Reset IP settings and will leave it for a while.

 

I cannot find any good reason to get HH6 from cupboard.

I have my trusty TP-Link around anywaySmiley Happy

Re: Lease Time

What is the problem you actually have? Is it simply that the lease times are changing in a way that doesn't make sense or is there something more?

And as before, what are the device types and have they been taken away from home or powered down?

When I suggested using static addresses, I meant configuring the address on your devices, not by using the hub. If you use the hub you will still be using DHCP, just that the IP address will remain constant rather than change.

Re: Lease Time

I don't have a clue what to do about the YouView box?

I am also getting what I used to call 'local disconnects' again.

I will be disconnected from the HH5 but the logs show nothing at all.

No change in the blue light at all.

All wires here.

 

Edit. sorry I should have said that no reason shows in the log just that I have been disconnected. It lasts for 1-2 min

Re: Lease Time

You can set a static IP address on the YouView box. Just use an IP address fro 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.63
