Basic - DHCP --> Confirm Settings Do you want to continue? Logout SBG6900-AC Basic - DHCP Home > Basic > DHCP Every device on the network needs to have an IP address that is unique to the network. You can manually assign these IP addresses, but as devices move from one network to another, you will need to change the address to one on that network. The DHCP server "loans" IP addresses to devices on the network. This allows the device to get the proper IP address for the network each time it connects so you will not need to assign an IP address manually. When the device leaves the network, the DHCP server can then "loan" the address to another device. --> LAN Network Configuration IPv4 Address . . . Help LAN IP Address: Like all of the devices on the local network (LAN), the gateway has an IP address on the network. This address should be from the address pools that are reserved for local networks. In general, they are of the form "192.168.x.x" or "10.x.x.x". The default for this gateway is 192.168.0.1. The LAN IP address is the address that you use in your Web browser to go to the gateway configuration pages and you should write it down and save it if you change this address. --> Enable DHCP Server Enables and disables the DHCP server -->  Enabled Help Enables and disables the DHCP server. The DHCP server loans IP addresses to the devices on the network. Unless you manually assign IP addresses to each device on the network, the DHCP server should be enabled. --> Starting Local Address The first address that the DHCP server will lend out to a device --> . Help This is the first IP address that the SBG6900-AC will automatically assign to a device on your home network. If you wish to manually assign IP addresses to devices, set the starting local address above the range reserved for fixed addresses. Note that the first address that the DHCP server will assign cannot be 0 as it has special meaning. --> Ending Local Address The last address that the DHCP server will lend out to a device --> . Help This is the last IP address that the SBG6900-AC will automatically assign to a device on your home network. --> Lease Time The amount of time in seconds that the IP address is loaned to a device --> Help This is the amount of time in seconds that an IP address is loaned to a device. When a device joins your network, the SBG6900-AC lends that device an IP address. When the device later leaves your network, the SBG6900-AC can then lend that IP address to a different device. In order to know which IP addresses are available, the SBG6900-AC lends devices an IP address for a specific period of time. This is known as the "lease time." When the lease time is reached, the IP address can be reused. If a device is staying connected to your network, the device will "renew" the lease, giving it more time to keep its assigned IP address. Reserve IP Address MAC Address Error IP Address Error Host Name Help Reserve a specific IP address that is loaned to only one device. There are times when you may decide to assign an IP address to a specific device. This can be done directly in the device through its configuration or you can have the DHCP server "loan" the same IP address to that device whenever it joins the network. Up to 16 devices can have IP addresses reserved in the SBG6900-AC. MAC Address MAC address of the device for which the IP address is being reserved. Each device on the network has a unique MAC address and it is the only device in the world with that MAC address. This address is how the DHCP server knows which device is which. The device's MAC address can be found by examining a label on the device or looking in the device's configuration settings. IP Address The IP address that will be given to the device each time it joins the network. There are times when you may decide to assign an IP address to a specific device. This can be done directly in the device through its configuration or you can have the DHCP server loan the same IP address to that device whenever it joins the network. Up to 16 devices can have IP addresses reserved in the SBG6900-AC. Host Name The user-friendly name of the device. The Host Name of the device is configured on the device. Please consult the device's user manual to see how you can change this user-friendly name.
