Re: ASUS router RT-AC68U

DHCP means the router is assigning it, Manual means you've manually assigned an address, Static means....have to get back to you on that.....lol.

You manually assign addresses in the LAN settings DHCP tab. Have to enable manual assignment.

Oh, be sure to hit the Apply button at the bottom whenever changing things. Drives me nuts when I forget and things don't take.

Oh and how do you run the 5GHZ side?  How does one know when to utilize the 5GHZ speed?
I posted awhile ago about that, it got lost in the fray.  Smiley Happy

Re: ASUS router RT-AC68U

ok BirdDog.  Got the lan set up...yes manual was enabled.  Is there any advantage in assigning an IP address to a device?  Will go look at my devices now to see if they are 5GHZ capable.  Thank much.  There is so much to learn!

Re: ASUS router RT-AC68U

For me, static means a hardwired device that has a specific address assigned to it within the device. Like a network printer.

Re: ASUS router RT-AC68U

Only advantage is you don't have worry about the DHCP switching the address for whatever reason then messing up your data tracking per device.

That static flag on my one device might be a glitch since I have static turned off under LAN, Route.

Now I'm going to drive myself nuts trying to figure it out. Thanks a lot! LOL

Re: ASUS router RT-AC68U

Ah GW, thanks. You're probably right, will check the TV to see if I have the address manually assigned there. I love this site!

Re: ASUS router RT-AC68U

GW,  that makes sense.  I'm having issues with my wireless security camera.  It was set up with a wired connection.  Then moved to remote location.  Wonder if that is why the IP address was static?  Slowly I'm learning.  I've had routers for years...but never have looked into WHY they work.  LOL

Re: ASUS router RT-AC68U

BirdDog,  Now that makes a lot of sense to me.  The ip address is always changing on the cameras for some reason.  Maybe I will just let it choose an address them assign that number to it manually.  Sorry about the static thing....let me know what you find out.  LOL

Re: ASUS router RT-AC68U

Sure enough, I had it set in the TV, why it was Static. Thanks again GW, triple likes. You saved OCD me from a breakdown.  Smiley Happy

Although the TV connection is wireless so I guess it doesn't matter. What matters is if it is assigned in the device itself.

I should pick out a shirt and iron it to be ready for that badge.  Smiley Wink
