D-Link DIR-825 :: Sometimes Shows A DHCP Reservation List
Mar 5, 2012
Ever since I updated my firmware to 1.01 my web interface for the network settings screen has been random. Somtimes it shows a DHCP reservation list, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes there are reservations, sometimes there are selectable radio buttons. I guess I'm just trying to figure out if this is a firmware issue or not. Ever since I updated the firmware it has been flakey.... But I was having issues with other stuff before that. When there are no reservations, sometimes i can't even select any computers because there aren't any in the drop down, when all of my hardware is online?
I have a DIR-615 router running FW version 3.01 with Hardware Version: C1 , my xbox is wired to my router. When I port forwarded, i had an strict nat, but had the best connection, but not by very much. When i put DMZ on, i had a strict nat, and the connection to other people was a bit better then UPnP.When i had UPnP on i had a open nat, i could barely be able to connect to anyone.what is a DHCP Reservations List?
i had the dir-655 with desktops and laptops running with xp and win 7, also some other devices such as ipod, iphone, ps3, xbox, problem occura with conflict of network ip address, i think xp and win 7 both login with the same network ip address. So I start to disconnect every device and try to connect each desktop and laptops, one by one, enabled the DHCP and reserve the network ip to avoid conflict. But here's the problem, when I connect the first computer with wired to the dir-655, can't find the computer in the DHCP list so I cannot do the reserve, I'm able to surf internet even I can see info with ipconfig. So I connected 1 wired and 2 wifi to the network, only 1 wifi network ip showing on the list, so I reserve that one, but after I refresh, the DHCP list is empty.
I have a setup using LogMeIn Hamachi and the network type creates a Windows Bridge. I also use the DHCP Reservations List to assign the same IP to specific devices. Well I have the MAC Address for my NIC in the list which works when I am not using the bridge. When using the bridge, of course the MAC address changes and when I try to add it to the list I get the following message in a popup window. The MAC Address is 02:e0:61:05:45:3e I have tried manually entering it, letting the router enter it from the list of computers and just to rule out something stupid, I have tried changing the letters to upper case and removing the colons.
Another issue I can see when this issue is resolved is that I do not believe it will let me add this reservation since I will be using the same IP used by another reservation. My DGL-4500 allowed this if I had the other reservations using the same IP disabled.Below these comments/rants are some feature requests. I have put them last as some of the requests are explained in the comment/rant section.I have read through this list and I have to say that after I purchased the router, which I ordered on-line, I was dreading it, but I have not had issues. It is possible that I am not using features that cause this issue. I believe the issues occur when using certain configurations with the "Enable Advanced DNS Service" enabled. I am not using this service. Since I knew people were having issue s with it, I wanted to see my results leaving that out. I have had this router running since a week before Christmas and I have many Virtual Server entires, QoS and port forwarding entries, https based remote administration, both 5GHz and 2.4GHz networks enabled supporting a/b/g/n(on both networks) and a guest network enabled on both bands all supporting WPA (TKIP and AES). I have 2 Giga wired connections that are always active, a 100Mb connection that is on an off but used almost daily, 2 Laptops that use the 2.4GHz network daily and one is 802.11g 54Mb and the other is 802.11n 150Mb and they are on at the same time almost daily, a printer that is on and used multiple times a week that uses 802.11g and a game system that uses 802.11a this device is used daily. Most devices are on and used at the same time daily and we have a good deal of regular Internet traffic and moderate other network traffic during these times. At night all computers are backed up over the network and most of the other network devices are off or not during this time. Other than having to reboot my Internet hardware provided by my ISP, I have not had issues. The router has been rebooted for config changes and I usually cycle it when I cycle the Internet hardware. Point is, so far no issues, good performance and it works and I have of course had other devices connected using the guest network and I have been testing features, performance, etc.
What's up with having so much variation in how features work across routers?e.g. My DHCP Reservation issue above. This router does not work with a setup like my DGL-4500.This router allows a preset amount of services like QoS and Virtual Server entries while the DGL-4500 just lets you add entries. Now maybe there is a limit and it just looks like there is no limit. Of course, there is at least a limit that is reached when you have used a certain amount of memory with the configuration.so many routers while leaving gaps and the lack of feature explanation and comparison?I switched to this router because I wanted a dual band setup which my DGL-4500 does not provide. That leads to the issue of the new way D-Link deals with dual-band. When I purchased the router it did not list that you had to choose 2.4GHz or 5GHz or it is not simultaneous dual-band. I was duped because I used to install DWL-7100AP for people that needed better wireless options for home businesses and small businesses and that provides simultaneous dual-band and back then if it was dual-band it was simultaneous. But I am disappointed in some of the features lost like WISH support and a few options here and there which do not seem like they are specific to gaming routers and this router is more on the mid range and low high range end of consumer, prosumer, home business and lower traffic small business routers, so why is it missing these features and why does it have the limitations I listed in the "variation in how features work" section above?
Other examples of lack of feature clarity are with Game Fuel, HD FUEL and Intelligent QoS. Isn't Game Fuel Intelligent QoS of some sort. Now from the example provided in the overview for the DGL-4500, Game Fuel optimizes game performance, but it does not say this is automatic or if it works along with the rules you set in the Game Fuel section which is the same as the QoS Engine section in the DIR-825. The difference is that the DIR-825 has a "Enable QoS Engine" option while the DGL-4500 has an "Enable Game Fuel" option. It seems that Intelligent QoS does what Game Fuel does, but expands that to VOIP, Media Streaming, etc. and it may be more automatic. HD Fuel in the only place I have seen it mentioned seems to refer to the combination of Intelligent QoS and the inclusion of 5GHz wireless support. Of course there is no version and feature documentation and in fact while the overview of the DIR-825 talks about gaming with Intelligent QoS, but if you bring up a comparison of routers, the chart has no in the gaming section for the DIR-825. I can't say I have noticed better or worse gaming performance with the DIR-825 compared with the DGL-4500, but given the shear lack of documentation on how to use Game Fuel and Intelligent QoS properly, who knows if I have this setup correctly. I will say the QoS Engine section in the DIR-825 is easier to use than the Game Fuel section in the DGL-4500.
1) The ability to reduce the brightness of the status lights, set them to solid if enabled with brightness options and to set them to off with an option to have some very faint light to show that the router is on. Of course I should be able to set different options to be applied at specific times.
2) Add the applicable features missing from the DIR-825 that are found in the DGL-4500 and applicable features from other routers. Also, get them all so they work the same on each router and let get the best from them all and make that the standard. e.g. In my DHCP reservation example above don't set the standard to the limitations of the DIR-825, but make the DGL-4500 function set or better function set of all routers combined for each feature the standard with-in router categories. e.g. the DIR-825, DGL-4500 and DIR-855 would be in the high end router category for consumer, prosumer, home business and lower traffic small business routers.
3) For DHCP reservations, you should not be limited to the DHCP IP Address Range.
4) On the log-in screen, get a better captcha and fix the tab order.
5) Add a log-out option in the web interface.
6) Allow for a next hop option in the DCHP server section. It would be cool, if there could be a list of IPs allows one to be enabled at a time.
7) Allow different DHCP server settings for each network. There are 5 on the DIR-825. Wired, 2.4GHz regular, 2.4GHz Guest, 5GHz regular and 5GHz Guest. Would be nice if you could set a couple of VLANs on the Ethernet ports and then have different DHCP setings for each VLAN.
For guest wireless networks, allow rules to be set to allow access to certain services on the network. E.g. I may want to allow printing. So allow a single port or multiple ports with easy settings for consecutive port ranges to be opened to an IP, IP range or all IPs and allow all ports for an IP or range of IPs. Of course, leave the allow full access option.
8a) Allow users to set rule sets that can be enabled/disabled like the full access option.
8b) Allow a control that can be set in the rule sets that controls if the wireless devices can talk to each other and another that controls if they can access devices on the wired network and another that controls if the wireless devices can access the Internet.
8c) Allow rules above to be limited to be applied to specific MAC Addresses.
8d) These options would be good to have for the non-guest wireless networks and wired network as well.
1. To specify static IPs for components on my network, is it simply a matter of reserving each component in the DHCP Reservations List portion of the Network Settings page?
2. On the same page, in the DHCP Server Settings portion, if Enable DHCP Server : is deselected, does this mean that only the hosts specified in the DHCP Reservations List can access the network? In other words, is access now restricted to these entries?
3. If the DIR-615 is powered OFF, will the above settings, etc. be lost (similar to a reset)?
Region : France Model : TD-W8968 Hardware Version : V1 Firmware Version : TD-W8968_V1_120926 ISP : SFR Device in question: siemans C610 IP voip phone Configuration:
* The C610 is directly connected to TD W8968 via the ethernet port number 3 >> ethernet port number 1 is connected to the devolo homeplug 200AVPLUS . The PC is at the other end of the homeplug network
* The DHCP address starts at 192.168.1.100 - 192.168.1.199.
1. It takes a long time (about 2-3 minutes) for the C610IP to obtain the IP address of 192.168.1.100 after the synchronisation of the ADSL line is finished 2. In the DHCP client list, I could only see the IP address of the PC (192.168.1.101) but not the C610 IP. However, if I type 192.168.1.100, I could access to the configuration page of the C610 IP. - I only managed to see the C610IP once in the DHCP client list.
I tried to unplug -> replug the router but to no avail.
I'm using TP Link router. I went to DHCP reservation list and provided mac address of a computer and ip address to reserve the ip address for the computer. But it still not changing my current ip address. I rebooted router, rebotted computer, but it still not changing to the reserved ip.

So I've been checking my router DHCP list and I usually use the WPS feature to add devices. I know how many devices I have and which ones are wireless etc. I've made address reservations on all the devices that I have and know of. One feature that really frustrates me (which is missing) is no way to rename a device. My iPhone is named: Reggie's iPhone yet the 4300 picks it up as Unknown... I dont understand why. I've renamed it on the iPhone to different things and restarted it but still it comes up as that. I have 2 Nexus 7s and both come up with wierd names, one is for my wife and one is for me and I wish there was a way to name it proper.
Question is: Will the name edit feature ever get added to it? I dont get why it's not there now, it's not really something major (I have a 5 year old router that even has that... and it cant even support N). It's really frustrating to have to guess and check the devices on my network because most of them come up as unknowns.
Right now I'm trying to located another device that's coming up as unknown and now matter how much I try, since the router lacks any feature to assist finding it, it's really frustrating.
something else i noticed: my DHCP List shows all the devices connected with their IP addresses, yet I went into CMD and was doing a random ping command. I'm able to ping 192.168.0.114 with perfect stats back yet on my DHCP List it shows the highest IP is at 192.168.0.112.... Is something wrong here? Is it supposed to not pick up the IPs it gives out? And of course since there isnt a way to tell if that IP is for a WIFI or ethernet device, I have no idea what that device is...
yet i found another ip address on my network by using the ping command. actually I went ahead and did arp -a to find out all the ips with mac addresses. this is a serious flaw with the security of this router!!
why my switch is not picking up a reserved address from the second pool below?console output with dhcp debugging on.ps. I have also tried 'hardware-address 0024.f769.bf40 1' which is hardware type 'other'
ip dhcp excluded-address 172.23.23.1 172.23.23.49 ! ip dhcp pool main import all network 172.23.23.0 255.255.255.0
I have simple set-up in my network with 2 routers connected to each other, 2nd router is just kind of wireless access point and switch to extend cable sockets upstairs.I have DHCP reservation on the first router and it works perfectly. Second router has DHCP server disabled, and I have configured DHCP reservation same as the first router, but it gives random IP addressess instead of reserved. how can I configure second router to obtain MAC DHCP RESERVATION TABLE from the 1st router?
When I'm in Setup -> Basic Setup -> click on DHCP Reservation, I don't see all entries I've created earlier but computers that connect still have the correct IP address on the network; I don't know if I can create additional entries if nothing appears
When I go to Status -> Local Network -> DHCP Client Table the list is blank but some computers are connected to the networkI'm using firmware 1.0.01 build 10 Feb 21, 2011, language = English, Firefox 4.0.1.Rebooting the router doesn't change anything, I can't see connected LAN equipment and DHCP Reservation is empty despite the fact I've created entries.Together with the "Access Restriction" which doesn't allow to block a computer from 10pm => 8am unless you create 2 rules + various issues with attached USB + 2.4Ghz signal that is far from optimal (never able to achieve more than 144-N-Mbps) and I ask myself if I will not contact the store where I purchased this unit and ask a refund (and buy something else from another brand...)
I tried to enter a name that included an illegal character (in this case, a single quote), and it gave me the popup box that said I had done so. When the popup closed, my DHCP reservation table was emptied out (I had maybe 5-6 reserved clients). In fact, I can't add new reservations anymore at all from this screen as it lists nothing in the DHCP clients table at the top. (Note, there are plenty of things in the DHCP Clients table over on the Status->Local Network tab). At this point, I think that my pre-existing reservations are still being held, but I'm not sure as it's only been about an hour so nothing has renewed.
I had firmware 1.0.05 when I encountered this problem. I upgraded to 1.0.07 as a means of trying to kick it into action, but the problem still exists.
All the SOHO routers I have used had a table which shows IP, MAC, Name, etc. In this table, I could easily put a check mark to a check box in a row that I would like to bind/reserve and IP would be reserved for that specific MAC.
In ISA570W, when I need to reserve/bind an IP to a MAC it asks me to fill out a table in which I have to manually type in the name, IP, and MAC.
Is there an easier way?Is there a way to do the reservation for multiple clients at once?If this is the only way, do I need to copy the mac address of each client somewhere and then reserve IPs for each one manually? This method looks very far from user friendly and efficient, unless there is a very logical reason that I cannot think of.
I have Linksys E3000 Router and it is connected to 7 Devices at this moment via DHCP. I have got New NAS Enclousre (8th Device) which has got Lan port . I have connected Box to One free Port on E3000 Router. I see DHCP Reservation from 192.168.0.1 assging one IP to My NAS Enclosure Box i.e 192.168.0.13 But when i ping that box . It's not pingable. When i try to browse that NAS Enclosure's setup web page - it's not opening. I can access that box setup page if i connect direct 1:1 Lan cable over private network (169.254.XXX). It means web server is runing on box. I am clueless. E3000 is assigning IP to NAS Enclosure but can't Browse or Ping. I tried to Assign Manual IP address to NAS enclusure and reconnect to router. Still I can't ping or browse.

Before upgrading my firmware on my EA2700, I can easily reserve IP address for my wired device. With the new cloud interface, I click to select the device from the top pane to bring it down in the reserved IP pane below. When I try to save the IP change I get two errors: 1) Invalid characters in the device name 2) Invalid IP address. I get the same errors even if I do not edid not edit the name or IP address.
As for the device name, I did not change anything or rename the device. One device has a " - " in the name and the router was happy with it until I tried to reserve the IP. Another one had a " ' " in the name, same problem again.
My network DHCP range is set to 192.168.1.200 to 192.168.1.250 and I use the range from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.100 for static IP. When I tried to reserve a static IP below 192.168.1.200, the router say that is an invalid IP.
The workaround to this problem has been to temporary set the DHCP range to 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.50 and set the static IP in that range and rename the devices to a name that the EA2700 will accept. Next I move the DHCP range from 192.168.1.50 to 192.168.1.100 and repeat the process. After, all the static IP are assigned, then I can reset the DHCP range to 192.168.1.200 to 192.168.1.250.
This is a pain to do. In the previous (cloud less) version, this was a breeze to do. Also, I have not figured out how to redirect ports with the new interface. Is that progress?
i am having an annoying issue with my wrt400n and my foscam FI8918W. in the dhcp reservation tab, the wrt400n doesn't show the foscam anywhere in the tab. it shows all laptops, cell phones, nases, etc. if i use the cisco connect software it does show it in the network map. i can probably add it manually via the gui. is this something normal or security cams not considered devices?
I have the e4200 and I am having trouble getting DHCP reservation to work properly with my Windows 7 machines. Perhaps there is a step that I am missing. Basically I go to the DHCP reservation setup page, select my machine and add it to the reservation table. Then I save the changes. As soon as I do this my computer goes offline. If I reboot my machine, it is still offline. I've tried the same procedure to reserve the IP address for my phone and it works fine so I wonder if the problem is with Win7.
I could get a list of clients on the E3200 wireless (or wired) ports. I have my E3200 setup as a WAP LAN-LAN off a switch and it is not the DHCP server on the network. I can see a list of MACs on the client list, but no client names and no IP addresses. They are definitely named and show up on the WRT54GL (DHCP and NAT) as devices

I've just set up an old netbook as a secure ftp server on my network. As part of the process I locked the server host IP by making the lease permanent in the DHCP/Address Reservation page of the routers web GUI.However I later noticed the MAC binding page which seems to achieve the same thing (lock an IP address to a specific adapter). I was wondering what the practical differences between the two techniques are? i.e is it better to use binding than reservation?
I have the gut feeling that binding is more robust as I'm not sure what happens to a reservation if the specified host device is removed and then the router rebooted, is the address released back to the pool of available addresses? Binding feels like that address will never be made available to another device even if that device is no longer present, or is that completely wrong?Also does the binding survive a router reboot?
On rv110w, I have 4 vlans. vlan3 feeds a dumb switch and a Wireless AP. When looking at router DHCP leases, it shows devices connected that are not connected. Kinda like it doesn't refresh the list. Set to 50 leases. Questions: Is this normal? How often should it refresh? Is the DHCP time put in as minutes???
I just started having this problem yesterday. I was experiencing weird downloading/internet browsing issues and couldn't figure out what the problem was. I started looking around my router settings and noticed that in my DHCP Client list, my computer isn't in it. The router is hooked up to the computer, so it's not wireless. My phone and my girlfriend's laptop are listed, but the main computer isn't. It's especially causing problems with port forwarding. Downloads will stop because the port isn't showing as open. I'm running 64 bit Windows 7 and a Belkin N+ Wireless Router, model F5D8235-4.Firmware is up to date.
Is there any way to clear the archived DHCP list on the Belkin F5D7230-4 wireless router? Over the years there have been a lot of connections, most are no longer around but the Belkin holds on to the list. I can find no way to clear it to get it back to what is currently connected. I have tried a soft reboot, unplugging power etc but it seems like I will have to do a factory reset and apart from not being able to find my ADSL login details, I would have to reset all my settings.
I keep getting some additional IP addresses logging onto my home network that have an address outside what should be allowed by the router. The server is running at 192.168.2.1 and is set to only allow clients from 192.168.2.2 - 192.168.2.10 so a total of 9 clients should be allowed on.The problem is that something keeps logging in with an address of 192.168.169.2 or 3 etc. Sometimes more than one device at a time.I have assumed that it is some automated or virtual client as I'm pretty certain my network has not been breached. I have a 9 character password with a relatively random alphanumeric combination, although I haven't tried changing the password (I live in a share house with with a bunch of devices using wireless, so I haven't yet bothered). What I don't understand is how it has connected with the xx.xx.169.xx range at all. I have a Belkin 'Share' Wireless N Modem Router and at some stage there was a 'guest' network but that has since been disabled and I still am seeing the extra address. I have attached a screen shot of the DHCP client list on the router.The following is a list of devices that may be on the network at times, I'm thinking one of these may be responsible for the problem:
Windows Vista Desktop - Only LAN device PS3 Macbook Epson wireless printer Android HTC Desire Mobile Phone Laptops running various Windows versions (XP, Vista and 7)
A few thoughts I had:
- the android phone is capable of running a wireless hotspot, may have to look into it to see if if has been operating as an access point into the Belkin router, but assumed this wouldn't bring up clients connected to the phone on the home router.
- The desktop has PS3 Media server installed to stream video to the PS3 over the network (not that I have ever managed to get it to work), however this is not ever open on the desktop.
I have the WRT160N router for 3.5 yrs and it's worked perfectly since installing it. About two weeks ago it began intermittently dropping cable connection. First few times I thought I could resolve it by unplugging/plugging router & modem so they can "re-syn" to the cable connection. That still works but now it occurs sometimes multiple times within a few minutes/hours and then won't happen again for an entire day/days. The other day I had connectivity but instead of the usual 5 bars I only had 3 while using my laptop in the same spot in the house as usual.
