change the ip address of a connected device

I have the router DHCP set to 100 to 254 but my static ips fall in below 100. So I connected a new device with an assigned IP of .134 but I want that to be .25 in my static ips. How do I do that?

Re: change the ip address of a connected device

A static IP is set on the device itself, not on the router

Routing: NETGEAR R7800 - Voxel Firmware 1.0.2.82.1SF
Switching: 2x NETGEAR 8-ports (GS108v4) / 1x NETGEAR 16-ports (JGS516v2)
Desktop: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X - Server: Intel Core i7-7700K - NAS: Intel Pentium G4400 - Cruncher: Intel Core i5-7400

   Terminology: A "static" address is configured on the device itself.
What you configure on a (DHCP server on a) router is a reserved dynamic
address, not a static address.  Are you talking about Address
Reservations on the router, or actual static addresses configured on the
device itself, or what?

   Huh?  "So"?  Are you using "So" as a verbal filler, or are you saying
that "I connected a new device" is a consequence of something you said
before (the actual meaning of "so")?

 

   What is your "a new device"?  How was it "assigned" an "IP [address]
of .134"?  Again, what do you mean by "my static [IP addresses]"?


   If you're really using reserved (dynamic) addresses, then why can't
you simply reserve the desired address for your "a new device"?

 

   If you're really using static addresses, then why can't you configure
your "a new device" with the desired static address?

 

   At least one of us is confused.

Re: change the ip address of a connected device

Well I guess I must have bungled that question up. I what I was trying to say the newly connected device got an IP of xxx.xxx.1.134. I have a reserved section in my router where the IP address end in xxx.xxx.1.xx so I want to know, can I change the IP address of xxx.xxx.1.134 to an IP address of xxx.xxx.1.xx? That way it fits in my reserved IP address ending with 2 digits. NO STATIC ADDRESSES TO DEAL WITH! Sorry I confused you.

   If that "xxx.xxx" is actually "192.168", then it's a private address,
and there's no good reason to hide any of it.

 

> [...] I have a reserved section in my router where the IP address end

   "section"?  I'm not sure what that means.  Your term or Netgear's?

 

> [...] can I change the IP address of xxx.xxx.1.134 to an IP address of
> xxx.xxx.1.xx? [...]

 

   If you configure a suitable Address Reservation on the router, then,
the next time these devices start up, the client device should get the
address which was reserved for it (in the DHCP server) on the router.

 

   But creating a new reservation will not, by itself, change the
address of a running device.  And the router might previously have
granted that newly reserved address to some other device, so it might
not be available now.

 

   If you shut everyone down, and start everyone up again, then _all_
your address reservations should be effective.
