How to configure Address Reservation on the TP-Link Wi-Fi Routers (new designed blue UI)
When you specify a reserved IP address for a PC in the LAN, the PC will always receive the same IP address each time when it connects to the DHCP server. If there are some PCs in the LAN that require static IP addresses, please configure Address Reservation on the router for the purpose.
Follow the steps below.
Access the web interface of Archer C9. Please refer to How to log in to the web-based interface of the Wi-Fi router (new designed blue UI) to access the web interface
Then we can go to Advanced -> Network -> DHCP Server-> Address Reservation to do the settings. We would show you the difference between 3 situations.
Suitable for Archer C3200, Archer C50 V2.
1. Click the Add button.
2. Enter the MAC address of the device for which you want to reserve IP address.
You can enter the MAC address as uppercase or lowercase, and use the colon symbol between them, but the dash symbol is invalid.
For example , you can enter the MAC address as AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF or aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff . But AA-BB-CC-DD-EE-FF or aa-bb-cc-dd-ee-ff would be invalid.
3. Specify the IP address which will be reserved by the router.
The IP address must be on the same subnet with the LAN IP, and it cannot be a reserved IP address.
For example, the default LAN IP address is 192.168.0.1, so you can reserve the IP address from 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.254.
4. Check Enable This Entry and click OK to make the settings effective.
The IP address reservation is configured successfully, and you can see the rule shown as below. If you forget to check Enable This Entry, then we can see a red circle below enable. Please click on the red circle then you can enable it.
5. Finally, please click on the Reboot button on the right top corner, then all the settings would take effect.
