Re: Setting up a static IP address CAX80


Setting up a static IP address CAX80

It does not seem possible to set up a static IP address on the CAX80 Nighthawk 8-Stream WiFi 6 Cable Modem Router. 

When you enter information into the page where you need to define the IP addresses and select "apply" the information on that page, including the IP address of the modem is blanked out.


Firmwear version is (current)


Did anyone else experience this (serious) problem?


Thank you

You have posted your message in the section of this community given over to Nighthawk WiFi Routers. (This is easily done, given Netgear's complicated community structure.)

Many questions apply to different types of device, so you might get responses here, but you might get more help, and find earlier questions and answers specific to your hardware, in the appropriate section for your device. That's probably here:

I will ask the Netgear moderator to move your message.
