Many people prefer to have static internal IP address rather than some random numbers allocated by the DHCP server. Two ways to accomplish that, either assign a static IP directly in your computer network settings or use IP reservation which is the preferred way of doing it.
- Login to the web interface of the ONT/Router using the instructions found here
- On the top horizontal menu, click on Lan.
- In the left sidebar menu, click on DHCP Static IP Configuration.
- Click on the New button, and fill in with the MAC address of your device and your desired IP address.
- Click on Apply.
You’re DONE!!! Good Job!
