DHCP reservation

DHCP reservation essentially assigns static internal addresses to devices to ensure they get the same IP address every time without having to hard-code the IP on the device. This is useful for things like printers, servers, backup drives, or computers that require easy accessibility.

  1. Log in to the Hitron modem.

  2. Select 'Basic' menu.

  3. Select the 'LAN Setup' sub-menu.

  4. On the 'LAN DHCP Status' line, select the 'DHCP Reservation' button.
