Re: Binding IP and MAC

You can change it, it's why the field is there, the problem is that it's something different than you think. :) I'll admit that I don't know too much about it myself, for example where it's actively used. It's some identifier chosen by client and server can use it as another condition besides MAC a...

Re: Binding IP and MAC

Are you by any chance doing something wrong with Client ID field? Like using it as comment or something? It would break things. That's the only explanation that I can currently think of, how you can get two entries for same MAC address. Thanks, that helped. So does this mean I may not change Client...

Re: Binding IP and MAC

I tried that too. What happens that after a while I have two addresses for one MAC on the leases list, and the one that is working is the one I don't want! You'll have to wait a bit longer, until original lease (which you don't want) expires. DHCP server can not push another address to the device, ...

Re: Binding IP and MAC

IP->DHCP Server->Leases Easiest way is to let device get dynamic address and then select Make Static, so you won't have to type MAC address yourself. You can then change IP address if you want and device will get it next time. I tried that too. What happens that after a while I have two addresses f...

Re: Binding IP and MAC


You should do this in menu IP-->DHCP, not ARP

Can you be more specific? IP/DHCP Client, IP/DHCP Server, IP/DHCP Relay? What next?

I already tried IP/DHCP Server/DHCP/Add new, but there is no box for specifying MAC address.

Binding IP and MAC

I have googled the Internet and got only instructions for old RouterOs versions. I have recently bought a MikroTik router. I have installed the basic options with Quick Set. Now I want to bind MAC addresses to static IPs, just as I had in previous two routers. I tried to WebFig/ARP/Add New. However,...

Re: Special task

You can download fully working virtual router with all features except wireless and test any configuration you want. And as long as you're fine with 1Mbit/s limit, which should be enough for testing, it's free. Look for Cloud Hosted Router on download page. I feel stupid, but I don't know how to in...

Hello router experts, My 10 years old LevelOne router is about to pass away and I am looking for a replacement.
