R7000P Assigning IP problems

I'm trying to assign a static IP address to a device.   For example, I try to assign 192.168.1.10 but when I apply it, I get the message "IP address should fall within the DHCP range".  My range is set from 192.168.1.2 - .254 so that shouldn't be a problem.  Similarly if I try to assign an IP address that is currently in use to the DMZ I get an error saying the IP address is not valid even though it is currently in use.  Port forwarding also doesn't work.  When I try to apply my settings, nothing happens.  I just set this router up.  It is brand new out of the box but I'm stumped.  Any advise?

What is your router's current firmware version?

   Firmware version?  Connected to what?  What is the LAN IP address of
the R7000P, "192.168.1.1", or something else?

   No, you're trying to reserve a dynamic address on (the DHCP server
on) your router.  A static address is configured on the device itself,
not on the router.

 

   What's the IP address of the computer, which is connected how to the
R7000P?

   Apparently, either you or the R7000P is confused.  If it's the
R7000P, then a settings reset (and manual reconfiguration) might help.

Re: R7000P Assigning IP problems

It was on the most recent firmware, but I was able to resolve the issue by flashing the previous firmware to it.  A manual reset did not work.  After I reflashed the firmware, it allowed me to make my desired changes including reserving an IP address (not a static IP, got it).  It has since been flashed back to the most recent.  I would say there was some sort of firmware corruption that occurred when it downloaded the firmware update during the intitial setup.  Guess it wasn't me who was confused.
