RUT950 reserve IP address

Can anyone tell me how to reserve IP addresses (mapping them to MAC addresses on my network)? This used to be possible in previous firmware but the facility seems to have disappeared. Previously mapped IP addresses are still active but I don’t seem to be able to create new ones.

In the UI, go to Network->Interfaces->Static leases and add new ones there.

Thanks for the suggestions. I don’t seem to have that option. There is no ‘Interfaces’ menu under Network.

Which version do you use ? Which device ?

Another option is using the CLI (ssh)

uci add dhcp host
uci set dhcp.@host[-1].name="camera1"
uci set dhcp.@host[-1].dns='1'
uci set dhcp.@host[-1].mac="00:11:22:33:44:55"
uci set dhcp.@host[-1].ip=""
uci commit dhcp
/etc/init.d/dnsmasq restart

Cheers for that. Will give it a try.

Your UI appears to be in “Basic” mode, set it to “Advanced” (in the top right corner).

Duh - what a remarkably simple solution! Thank you so much for pointing this out. Perhaps this is a case of RTFM!
