      Lan IP setup

      Hi,
      I have tried searching but cannot find anything for this topic.
      If I reserve an IP address in "LAN IP Setup" section, in Advanced on the router will the PC that I add to that list then always have that IP address?
      I am assuming that is what it means and sorry if I am being simple but I have an old PC that I store files on and access the files by using "map network drive" on my laptops. But the PC doesn't have a monitor/keyboard/mouse so if the power fails or the PC crashes it's a bit of a ball ache to find out what the IP address so I can map it again!

      Hope that makes sense,

      Cheers

      Re: Lan IP setup

      Yup, that's exactly what you do. You have "Use Router as DHCP Server" switched on (it is on by default) and then just add the PC in question to the "Address Reservations" list.
