How to assign static IP address on HG8245H

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.

  1. Login to the web interface of the ONT/Router using the instructions found here
  2. On the top horizontal menu, click on Lan.

  4. In the left sidebar menu, click on DHCP Static IP Configuration.

  6. Click on the New button, and fill in with the MAC address of your device and your desired IP address.
  7. Click on Apply.

You’re DONE!!! Good Job!

  1. Hi!, can you help me with vlan option with this ONT?, the scenario is:

    at home i have a hg8245h with the default addres 192.168.100.1, plugged at it´s ethernet ports 2 and 3 are two tp-link wifi routers, working normal, internet is fully functional, at the wifi network and at the ethernet ports.. but, in the ethernet port 1, i have a cable connecting a 8 port switch, where i have another tp-link wifi router linked as a bridge with another wifi router (working as a bridge too), that connects two distant locations, home and shop, the network at the shop is 192.168.0.0, i can ping all machines and routers at the both sides, but at the shop, even if a put an 192.168.100.30 address with 192.168.100.1 as the gateway, i can´t access the internet!!, remembering that i can ping and access the config screen of the hg8245h at the shop!!, i think that is a problem with the hg8245h vlan configuration!!, but i can´t solve it!!!, how can i free the ethernet port 4 or 1 at the hg8245h from vlan ? sorry for the big question!!!!

  2. this is a try to better explain the scenario!!
    structure:

    home network 192.168.100.0
    hg8245h 192.168.100.1
    tplink wifi 1 hg8245h port 2 ip 192.168.100.3
    tplink wifi 2 hg8245h port 3 ip 192.168.100.4
    8 port switch connected to hg8245h port 1 or port 4
    pc connected to this switch , ip 192.168.100.11

    ptp link made of

    tplink 1 as bridge (managment ip 192.168.0.252
    tplink 2 as bridge (managment ip 192.168.0.253

    shop network 192.168.0.0
    switch tp-link 24 ports unmanaged

    server ip 192.168.0.241
    internet gateway ip 192.168.0.254 (internet actually comes from an ADSL modem, on a second board at the gateway, i want to use internet from home that is a fiber connection), but maintaining the networks separated)

    pc ip 192.168.0.200

    ptp is working normally, i can reach all machines from the both sides!!, at the shop, even if i change the pc ip to something like 192.168.100.100 mask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.100.1, i can´t use the fiber internet connection!!!, i can ping the gateway 192.168.100.1, access its configuration from browser , but no internet available…

    thank´s!!!

  3. this problem is basically routing issue where by two different internet are conflicting each other …you need to route your shop server into the HG8245 or otherwise configure the shop server as 192.168.100…..

  4. I like have a narrow IP set for DHCP like 192.168.xx.40 to 50 but i like have some device out of DHCP scope like xx.9 but HG8245H don’t let it or there is a trick for doing that ?

  5. Please note that the static IP assigned to the Mac Address MUST be inside the range defined on the “DHCP Server Configuration” page (Start/End IP Address). I usually configure this range only for the automatic (DHCP defined IPs) and leave the static ones outside the range. But on this router the static IPs also need to be inside the start/end range or you will end up getting an automatic IP inside such range. I hope this is not too confusing.. LOL
