OrbI RSR50 - simple one? how to change attached device ip

Hi all,

 

Quick one I hope - I've got various devices that I'm assigning fix IP addresses to and all's fine except the devices don't move to the new IP address. Eventually they seem to (ie many days/weeks later), but that's not ideal.

 

Is there a way in the Orbi Router admin to force a reset of assigned IP for a device or to shove it to the right IP?

 

I can't quite figure out how Orbi is deciding to renew/refresh the IP lease and therefore not able to trigger it!

After defining reserved IP addresses for devices, be sure to click the "Apply" button so that the DHCP server is restarted on the Orbi to publish the new IP addresses to devices.

Ah, super - knew it was something I was missing - wasn't clear from the UI that apply meant it'd flush the DHCP leases - perfect. Thanks for this
