DHCP Reservations with Homehub 2

I am used to netgear and other feature rich routers where you can set the IP address you want in DHCP reservations.  Am I correct that the best you can achieve in HH2 is to fix the IP address to whatever DHCP has allocated. 

 

I want to use specific addresses as there are inter server communications already set up against IP addresses which work well today.

No, you're not correct:smileywink:

 

 

You can (after some tweaking) force the DHCP on the HH2 & HH3 to allocate what ever address you want - though I've only tried this using the hubs default range of 192.168.1.64 to .253

 

The 'tweaking' bit can be time consuming if you've got multiple devices.

 

(never owned an earlier version hub so don't know if you can the same)

And what is this magic tweaking?

Re: DHCP Reservations with Homehub 2

Disconnect all devices, bar one laptop/PC

click this link to enter the hub manager - http://bthomehub.home/

click A-Z (top right) and navigate to home network, click IP Addresses, then change the DHCP start Address to what you want the first device to be allocated, click Apply

Connect the device and the hub should allocate the chosen IP address.

Then click Devices, check the device is there and click on the blue text, which should bring up a new page, double check the address allocated and click on Always use this IP address, then Apply.

Carry on for the rest of the devices, changing the start address to what you want.

 

When you're finished, move the start address back to .64

 

Reboot all devices - not the hub.

 

(the above does apply to the v2 only, the hub3 is far easier)
