Bind the MAC to the static IP address with WRT54GL router


We use the WRT54GL Wireless router to connect 4 pc to internet. One of these pc requires a static IP address, because the router can do only reliable port-forwarding for IP static (I would ssh it and use it as a web server). I was told that this router has this ability, but for the life of me I can't find.

Could someone tell me how to proceed? I am running the latest firmware (v4.30.11).

Thanks in advance for your reply,



DD - WRT is fairly stable and well maintained. There are a lot of people using it and you get excellent support, if you don't mind not very technical responses to opportunities. Generally, the flashing of the firmware does not support the warranty. But that wouldn't be a problem if you have had a bad flash. And even for a bad flash you often have options to recover the router.

For the static IP address on the computer, change the settings of network to the ethernet interface. I do not know Gentoo you should have administration GUI for this somewhere.

You can use the following values:

IP (as mentioned earlier) for instance
subnet mask
address of the gateway DNS server

As long as the static IP addresses do not conflict with the DHCP server address pool create there will be problems running some static IP computers in the same local network with DHCP clients.

  • Cannot configure the static IP address for Cisco Touch 8 "

    Hi all

    I found that I can not configure the static IP address for Cisco Touch on TC7.0.1 / 7.0.2 with the procedure described below.

    1. upgrade a codec (e.g. SX20 TC6.3 or less) and a touch paired with the codec for TC7.0.2.

    2. after the upgrade, désapparier (with the help of désapparier Touch button) touch and it reboot.

    3. tap on "IP settings."

    4. Select "Manual IP allocation".

    5. Enter the IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, and then press "Save".

    Even though we have configured the static IP address with the above procedure, IP allocation remains 'Auto' (= DHCP) and the IP address, subnet mask, default gateway is also empty.

    In this situation, the only way to configure the IP address for the Touch is to use the DHCP server.

    I guess many users uses the static IP assignment like us, so please fix it as soon as POSSIBLE.

    Best regards

    Hi Kotaro,

    It is a known problem in TC7.0.1 and TC7.0.2. The id of the bug is CSCum82147.

    To work around the problem, set IP address you want the button before moving on to TC7.0.x.

    The bug has been fixed and will be included in the next version of the TC software.

    How can I manually set the IP address used by the TV when I use the wireless network connection?

    Thanks for the reply.

    But I wasn't asking questions about a reservation in DHCP I was wondering how to set a static IP address on the TV itself when using the wireless network.

    Because you don't want to do it on your router, you must go into your NETWORK settings and wireless to do it on your Android TV... 'Advanced settings' allows you to choose the IP DHCP or static. Once you choose static, you can enter the number that you want to use.

  • network connection does not work on the static ip address


    I am newbie for vmware, recently, I've converted a windows 2008 virtual domain controller, after the fact, everything works fine on the IP of the DHCP, but after I change the static ip address, I can always ping the IP but the DC lost its functionality and internet does not work.

    Any idea or help that can make my static ip, would be very grateful if someone can help! Here is my network configuration:


    Hello and welcome to the community

    There are a few things to consider in this regard

    First of all, it is not a simple task to change the IP address a domain controller, so I don't know what procedure you followed

    Just in case, here is the procedure to do so: (WS.10) .aspx

    Second of all, to virtualize a domain controller also has a specific process that must be followed.

    Most of the people prefer to create a new virtual domain controller and move all of the above roles.

  • Changes to the network when the reconfiguration of the DHCP server to the static IP address

    I installed new positions of work on my network and had WDS push the image so we have installed DHCP to do this. After all the work stations were Setup, I started to change static IP DHCP on the workstations as we prefer to use static IP addresses.  Some computers work fine, some don't. The problem I have is when changing from a static IP, as active network passes the network of the area to the Public network. However, when it is configured to use DHCP, the active network is the domain network. What am I, I missing which will cause the active networks of change to public networks at the static IP change? I checked the settings ip IP, Subnet, DG and DNS and they seem correct. I tried to withdrawal, join. I tried the update NIC driver. I tried to uninstall the NETWORK adapter and reboot. If anyone has seen this before?

  • VMware device with 2 network cards claiming the same IP address with two MAC addresses


    I see messages intermittent my gateway network two MAC addresses associated with a virtual machine running on a 5.5 ESXi host for the same IP address.

    The virtual machine is a MiTel 3300 controller for a VOIP system. the system is configured with two IP addresses, one on the local network and another with a public IP address in the DMZ. In the network configuration of the 3300, I assigned the address LAN IP at 00: 0C: 29:30:B2:B2 and the DMZ IP at 00: 0C: 29:30:B2:BC (Mac for network devices presented by the ESXi host virtual machine).

    On the host, I configured a vSwitch with exclusive access to two physical network adapters on the host machine. The vSwitch is configured with two machine virtual port groups, LAN and DMZ, with access to the physical network interface cards. Tab grouping of groups vSwitch port NIC, I replaced the order of failover of the switch to activate an active NETWORK card only for the Group of LAN ports and the other card NETWORK only for the DMZ port group. (I don't know how the content of the column of networks is determined. Neither is correct for the traffic on the physical switch. If these are configurable, please advise and I'll change the settings). The relevant parameters of vSwitch, groups of ports and VM are distinguished below.

    On the virtual machine itself, through the VMWare host, I assigned 00: 0C: 29:30:B2:B2 for the Group of LAN ports and 00: 0C: 29:30:B2:BC to the DMZ group port (best I can tell, anyway, since the MAC address field annoyingly obscures the last two digits of the MAC address - break if I invert the mapping) (, but all seems OK).

    The goal here is to make sure that MACs of ports vSwitch the 3300 is listening and sending always correspond to the physical ports that are VLAN Tag by the physical switch to ensure the routing. Generally speaking, it seems that what is happening but, intermittently, we cross one-way calls that suggests a problem of routing between us and our SIP trunk provider; coinciding with these incidents, I get an email along the lines of "the security in the network device has detected a conflict of IP address with two or more devices. The period of INVESTIGATION "DMZ. DMZ. DMZ. DMZ' is claimed by the following clients with MAC addresses: ' 00: 0C: 29:30:B2:B2' ' 00: 0C: 29:30:B2:BC'. »

    I did something in the configuration that would lead to this kind of collision intermittent? Have a hacked together a way to do something that could be accomplished in a way that is simpler and more reliable?

    Thanks for any idea that you can offer.

    Kind regards


    I probably don't fully understand your configuration, but it seems that you are not interested in using the collection of NETWORK adapters in the virtual switch of the VM MiTel 3300.

    If it is correct, why not create two virtual switches, each with a group of port (LAN and DMZ) unique and with a separate connection of (vmnic2 and vmnic1)?

    In general, collection of NETWORK adapters may be used to share traffic between uplinks and ensure that if one of the uplinks connect fails, a virtual machine still has access to the network.

  • Is there a way to specify the static IP address for deployment EGGS in the ovftool command?


    I'm trying to deploy EGGS using ovftool. I see the option - network and - net available for the selection of the network by name, although I wasn't able to find a way to assign a static IP address in the ovftool command itself. Something like - ip0 = Is there a way we can do that? User interface when we deploy an OVA, we have available to provide IP address, gateway, DNS and network mask.

    Thank you

    Hello, vPupil-

    If the ovf/eggs is created to have definable properties, as an IP of the machine, you can use the "-prop ' parameter to ovftool.exe.

    By literature (, is the syntax to set a property:


    It is near the bottom of page 24, as well as an example.

    To see if the ovf/eggs that you are using has configurable options, you can use ovftool.exe in mode "probe" (page 25).  Just issue the command with only one source, no target, as such:

    > ovftool.exe myAppliance.ovf

    This should generate the results of the probe, which should list all configurable properties, including their 'key '.  This key is what you use with the "-prop" parameter.  In the example of probe on pages 25-26, the FVO has two properties, 'db - ip' and 'ws - ip ".  Then you should be able to specify values for these properties by adding the following to your ovftool order:

    ... --prop:db-ip= --prop:ws-ip= ...

    How does do for you?

  • Assign the static IP address by ISE, ASA VPN clients

    We will integrate the remote access ASA VPN service with a new 1.2 ISE.

    Authentication is performed in Active directory. After authentication, can address assigned to a specific user of VPN by ISE IP?

    This means that the same VPN user will always get the same IP address. Thank you.


    You can override the IETF-RADIUS-Framed-IP-Address in the authorization policy.

    However if I may make a suggestion:

    Unless you have only a handful of users to do so, it may be appropriate to assign the address of ISE pool or perform the mapping of LDAP attributes on ASA itself.

    In the latter case, the IP addresses are kept on the server as LDAP attributes and ASA will map the IP address. You don't want to keep address IP DB in several places.


  • Static IP address with VPN

    I'm doing research using VSphere our Organization and that you can't find the answer to an important question:

    If you have 2 VM using the Hot Standby how do you deal with the fact that the VM active must have the same static IP address, since it is the only address our VPN router will allow our remote users to access?

    For clarity:

    VMServer 1 @ (where the is the only address the VPN will allow a user to do) switches to a Hot Standby Server VMServer2

    After switching to the VMServer 2 needs to be so that the VPN will continue to let the remote users work with the machine.

  • How to configure the network home wiFi with dlink router

    I need to create a home network using the dlink WiFi router
    a computer with Vista and the second with XP
    can someone tell me what havo to do to configure the router etc etc o give me same informamation on where I can learn to do
    I want just the old pc with xp for the server and the vista one customer but more importantly I need the file on XP to migrate under vista.
    Thank you very muche for your end of the patient cooperation
    in return, I give free cooking classes
    see you soon

    I'm not sure if you are asking how to set up a secure wireless network, if you ask how to share files between your two computers (and there is no "customer" or "server" in a working group, in a field - which is not), or both.

    So I will give you information on doing both.

    Router - configure manually

    Setting up a router is simple enough. Normally, you run the CD that came with the router and follow the instructions. If you're running Vista, maybe the CD that came with the router does not work; I do not know this. But you can set up the router without the CD. Note that if you have Internet cable for the connection you have just set up the router to DHCP (or there may even be a choice of cable to choose). If you have DSL Internet, you select TRP usually and enter the username and password you selected when you initially set the DSL connection. So:

    1. turn off the power to your cable modem.
    2. attach a class (usually supplied with the router) ethernet cable cat5e port Internet/WAN from the router to the ethernet port on the cable modem.
    3. connect the ethernet cable cat5e from the network card in your computer to one of the ports on the router. If you do not have an ethernet cable (because you were using USB), you will need to go to the store and buy a.
    4. turn on the cable modem. After that all the lights are on, turn on the router.

    To configure the router:

    Have a computer connected to the router with an ethernet cable. Examples given are for a Linksys router. See the manual of your router or the router mftr's Web site. for the parameters by default if you don't have a Linksys. Open a browser such as Internet Explorer or Firefox and in the address bar type: [Enter] (it is default IP address of the router, which varies from router to router then check your manual)

    This will bring you to the login screen of the router. The default username is blank and the Linksys default password is "admin" without the quotes. Enter this information. You are now in the configuration of the router utility. Your configuration utility may be slightly different from mine. The first thing to do is to change the default password because * all * known default passwords for different routers.

    Click the Administration link at the top of the page. Enter your new password. MAKE A NOTE SOMEWHERE THAT YOU WILL NOT LOSE. Re-enter the password to confirm it, and then click Save settings at the bottom of the page. The router will reboot and show you the box of connection again. Do not fill in the user name and put it in your new password to enter the configuration utility.

    Now, click on the link wireless at the top of the page. Change the network name (SSID) wireless by default to something, you'll recognize. I suggest that my clients not use their surname as the SSID. For example, you might want to name your network wireless network "CastleAnthrax" or similar. ;-)

    Click on save settings and when you get the prompt that your changes were successful, click the wireless security link which is just beside the Basic Wireless Settings link (where you changed your SSID). Most computers purchased during the last 4 years have the wireless hardware that will support WPA2-Personal (also known as WPA2-PSK). This is the desired encryption level. If your wireless hardware is older, use WPA. Don't use WEP, because who is easily broken within minutes. So go ahead and set the Security Mode WPA2-Personal. Do this and enter a password. For example, you could use the password ' here be dragons, beware you scurvy dogs! The password is what you enter on all computers that are allowed to connect to the wireless network. MAKE A NOTE SOMEWHERE THAT YOU WILL NOT LOSE.

    At this point, your router is set up and if the computer that you use to configure the router will normally connect wireless, disconnect the ethernet cable and wireless of the computer should see your new network. Enter the password that you have created (exactly as you wrote it with all capital letters and punctuation) to join the network and start surfing.


    Here are the steps of general network troubleshooting. Just cannot apply to your situation, so just take the bits that are. It may seem daunting, but if you follow the steps in the links and suggestions below calmly and consistently, you will have no difficulty to implement your sharing.

    Excellent, comprehensive, but easy to understand article on sharing files/printer under Vista. Contains information about sharing printers and files, and the folders:

    For XP, start by running the Network Setup Wizard the on all machines (see warning in section A below).

    Problems sharing files between computers on a network are usually caused by 1) a misconfigured firewall or a firewall neglected (including a dynamic firewall in a virtual private network); or (2) inadvertently run two firewalls such as the firewall of Windows and a third-party firewall. and/or (3) do not have accounts to the same users and passwords on all computers in the workgroup. (4) tries to create actions where the operating system does not.

    A. configure the firewall on all machines to allow traffic to local area network (LAN) as being approved. With the Windows Firewall, it means which allows file sharing / print on the Exceptions tab normally run the XP Network Setup Wizard will take care of this for these machines. The only "witch hunt", it will turn on the XPSP2 Windows Firewall. If you are not running a third-party firewall or you have an antivirus/security with its own firewall component program, then you're fine.  With a third-party firewall, I usually set up the allocation of LAN with an IP address range. E.g. would be - Obviously you would substitute your correct subnet. Refer to the safety of any third party program or the user forums for how to correctly configure its firewall. Do not run more than one firewall. DON'T STOP FIREWALLS; CONFIGURE THEM CORRECTLY.

    (B) to facilitate the Organization, put all computers in the same workgroup. This is done from the System applet in Control Panel, the computer name tab.

    C. create the counterpart of the user accounts and passwords on all machines. You do not need to be logged into the same account on all machines and assigned to each user account passwords can be different; accounts/passwords just need to exist and to match on all machines. DO NOT NEGLECT TO CREATE PASSWORDS, EVEN IF ONLY OF SIMPLE. If you want a machine to boot directly to the desktop (a particular user account) for convenience, you can do this:

    XP - configure Windows to login automatically (MVP Ramesh) -

    Vista - Start ORB > Search > type: netplwiz [Enter]
    Click continue (or provide an administrator password) when you are prompted by UAC

    Uncheck "users must enter a user name and password to use this computer". Select a user account to connect automatically by clicking on the account you want to highlight and press OK. Enter the password for this user account (when it exists) when you are prompted. Leave blank if there is no password (null).

    D. Si one or more of the computers is XP Pro or Media Center, turn off Simple file sharing (Folder Options > view tab).

    E. create share as you wish. XP Home does not share the users directory or the Program Files, but you can share folders inside those directories. A better choice is to simply use the Shared Documents folder. See the first link above for more information on Vista sharing.

    F. you have the job of file sharing (and tested by exchanging a file between machines), if you want to share a printer connected locally to one of your computers, share of this machine. Then go to the printer mftr Web site. and download the latest drivers for the correct system. Install them on the target machines. The printer must be collected during the installation procedure. If this isn't the case, install the drivers and then use the Add Printer Wizard. In some cases, printers must be installed as local printers, but it is outside this response.

  • change the static IP address after the migration

    I have two guests(Host-Only) with static IP, under VMWare Server (S1). For starters, I put the guests to use DHCP and then chose the IP assigned as static.   In the future, I can use these prompts under different VMWare Server (say S2) and would hold the same static IP (given by S1). To do this

    (a) initially, DHCP (on the S1 server) must give resonably unique IP address them. Each server VMWare uses a different value for 2nd octet in IP address, byte that comes after 192.168.yyy?

    (2) then, how to change the DNS records of the VMWare Server target S2, to recognize new IPs.

    Thank you


    You can manually choose the IP address of the subnet that VMware should use to VMnet1 (host only). Just modify it according to your needs. You can also change the settings of virtual DHCP server.

    VMware alwas chooses a network 192.168.x.0 address, where x is randomly chosen. You must keep the netmask
