Information

 
Question
How do I reserve an IP address in the SBG6900-AC?
Answer
In certain scenarios, it may be desired to have a client receive a particular IP address from the SBG6900-AC, and always keep that address without having to manually configure a static IP address in the client.  This can be accomplished with the Reserve New IP Address feature in the SBG6900-AC.  The SBG6900-AC can be configured to reserve a specific IP address within the DHCP range of addresses for a specific client.  When the client connects to the SBG6900-AC, it will receive the IP address automatically that it has been reserved for.

NOTE: This option serves as a great solution for devices that are configured to use the Port Forwarding or DMZ options in the SBG6900-AC.

By default, no IP addresses are reserved in the SBG6900-AC.  This document contains the following sections:
