How do I configure a DHCP Static Lease?

Your network device IP addresses are assigned automatically using DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol). It may be advantageous to always assign the same IP address to devices like Roku, AppleTV, Xbox, PS3, and a network printer. Follow these steps:

  1. Login into the device as described in the “How do I log into the modem’s Web User Interface?” FAQ.
  2. On the top menu, click TOOLS.
  3. On the left menu, select Client List.
  4. In the Client List, note the MAC address and IP address of your attached device (for example, Roku, Xbox, Printer).
  5. Click the GATEWAY tab on the top menu.
  6. On the left menu, select Static Lease (or DHCP Static Lease).
  7. Enter the MAC address and IP address from the Client List, enable, and click Apply.
