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 the DHCP server. If there are some PCs in the LAN that require permanent IP addresses, please configure Address Reservation on the router for the purpose.

Step 1

Log into the router’s web management page:
