OS: Win7 upgraded to Win10
Hardware ver: FAST5364 3.00
Software ver: SG4K10002808t
On my primary PC, I have Oracle Virtualbox's host-only ethernet adapter bridged with my Realtek adapter and had reserved the first available IP address, i.e. 192.168.1.10. After upgrading to Win10, the network bridge was assigned a new MAC address, forcing a new IP address, and I now find I can't re reserve the original IP address as I'm informed it is still in use.
I was under the impression that the DHCP reservation might expire after some time (since 14 Feb), but this doesn't seem to be the case.
Will I need to perform a factory reset or is there an updated software version that facilitates the release of old address reservations?
Thanks for any insight.
You should certainly be able to cancel a reservation. Go to the Advanced Configuration page click on the device in question that is already reserved and there is a cancel reservation button there.
I am well versed in creating/deleting reservations with the 5364.
Chain of events: (note: DHCP pool 192.168.1.10 - 192.168.1.254)
It appears that with all the other limitations and issues, this router's firmware is not fit for purpose, or is at least unable to cope with a surprise your OS throws at it.
I missed the opportunity to trial a 'new' router - are they now being issued with new accounts?
Try a factory reset then.
@KeithFrench Perhaps I will, but more to the point should I have to?
Is there no 'pro' version of the software - also, about the new 'trialled' router?
I have not noticed this problem, but then I have not used your exact scenario. No there is no "pro" version, the other question I cannot answer, because I am just a customer.
