Address Reservation not sticking to device
Now that I can assign static address to a device, I have tried several times without success. I have always checked first which 3rd octet values are assigned, then select something very different. Norton Core shows the assignment worked, but when I actually connect the device (and I am aware it must first be restarted for assignment) it does not take. Checking device IP address shows it has something else. I have roughly 10 devices that may be on the router at any one time, generally less. I have never seen a 3rd octet greater than 12, so I have chosen 20, 44, 50, 60. When I return to the assignment page there it shows the octet I selected, but that is not what is assigned. The assigned octet still appears to be handled by the DHCP?
Now 1 point of observation. All my IP addresses have 2 as the 4th octet. And 2 is shown when initially adding a device to Address Reservation. However, once the address is assigned the IP address comes up as 123.123.123.null. What is null telling me? Should it not be showing 2? Does Address Reservation automatically choose a different 4th octet value?
