Huawei633 Static IP addresses?

Message 12 of 12

I have the Huawei633 on Fibre

The software version is V2.00t

 

I have 2x raspberry Pi’s that require static IP addresses

They are programmed  for static addresses

When I set their mac numbers to be static in the router they work OK but a reboot means the DHCP re assigns the IP addresses. I can’t get any static addresses to work on this router.

 

Can you actually get this router to assign static IP’s on reboot?

It seems DHCP is the only option.

Thanks for that. My issue is the first device sustains as static when you set it up in the DHCP reservation table. But a second one wont stay static. It stays DHCP. Attached are my screen prints.

 

I'll set a couple of other devices on my network to static that are bog standard printers and see if the problem  replicated or it's a Raspberry Pi problems. Looking at the code in the Pi's they are set to the correct static IP's.

Hi villafranca,

 

Our product team have tested this by assigning a static IP address to a device and rebooting the router, they've confirmed it worked fine and didn't reset following the reboot. They've asked if you can try assigning a static IP address to a different device (something other than a rasberry pi) and check to see if you have the same issue

Thanks, it would be unthinkable that such a basic function wasn't in a major ISP's bit of standard kit. There's a few forums that say it doesn't work on a 633 without a software update. .. which has been promised since last summer. Anyway, I shall watch and wait.

thanks

Hi villafranca,

 

I've received some feedback from our product team, they think you should be able to do this but they are going to test it tomorrow so I should have a further update for you then 🙂

Thanks, no static up addresses delivered by the router will be a terminal relationship event 🙂

Yes, despite setting up the DHCP server reservation for the MAC addresses of my devices I need a static address..... they stay static and correct for a while but at router reboot get reset to whatever DHCP chooses. So everything stops working.

The router application tells me one device is set static but the second device stays as showing on DHCP. But in reality a reboot just reassigns the IP addresses.

Hi villafranca,

 

 

Does DHCP always assign a dynamic IP address when you reboot the router?
