mAX (W30/W31): LAN IP Reservation Setup

« Go Back


How do I setup a LAN IP reservation on the SURFboard mAX™ app?
Setting a static LAN IP address for client devices connected to the mAX network is simple.  In certain cases, it is best for a client to receive a particular IP address and always keep that address without having to manually configure it in the client.  This can be accomplished by reserving an IP Address to a client's MAC address.  When the client disconnects and reconnects to the mAX router, it will receive the IP address that it has been assigned.

It is recommended to setup an IP Address Reservation for clients that are configured to use Port Forwarding.  This document describes how to reserve an IP address for a client connected to the mAX network.
