Stop Your Wall Connector's IP address changing.
How to Avoid IP Address Changes

Are you tired of dealing with frequent IP address changes on your Wall Connector? Luckily, there are some steps you can take to avoid this inconvenience and ensure a more stable network experience.

You may also want to set up a static IP address if they encounter issues like frequent disconnections from their Wall Connector or if they regularly need to update the IP address in Wall Monitor. Moreover, in cases of power failures or network disruptions, having a static IP address can ensure that the device maintains a consistent connection without requiring any manual intervention. Even users who have not experienced these specific issues may opt to set up a static IP address to proactively avoid potential connectivity problems and enjoy a more reliable and hassle-free network experience.

What is a Static IP Address?

A static IP address is a fixed, unchanging IP address assigned to a device on a network. While most devices on home networks use dynamic IP addresses assigned by the router (DHCP), there are cases when you may want to give a device a static IP address. This can be beneficial for tasks like port forwarding, remote access, or ensuring a specific device always has the same IP address for easier network management. In this article, we'll guide you through the process of assigning a static IP address to a device using your home router.

Step 1: Accessing Your Router's Web Interface

To configure your home router and assign a static IP address, you'll need to access its web-based configuration interface. Here's how to do it:

  1. Open a web browser on a device connected to your home network (it could be a computer, laptop, or smartphone).
  2. In the address bar, enter your router's IP address. The default IP address is often written on the router's label or can be found in the router's manual. Common addresses are or If you don't know your router's IP address, you can usually find it with a quick internet search or by checking your device's network settings.

Step 2: Logging into the Router
  1. When you access the router's IP address in your web browser, you'll be prompted to enter the router's username and password. If you haven't changed these credentials before, you can find the default login information in the router's manual or on the manufacturer's website. It's essential to change the default login credentials for security reasons.

Step 3: Locating the DHCP Settings
  1. Once you log in, navigate through the router's settings to find the "DHCP" or "LAN" section. This location may vary depending on your router's make and model. Check the router's manual if you're unsure about the location of these settings.

Step 4: Reserving the Static IP Address
  1. In the DHCP or LAN section, look for an option called "DHCP Reservation," "Address Reservation," or something similar. This feature allows you to assign specific IP addresses to particular devices based on their MAC addresses (a unique identifier for each network device).
  2. Locate the MAC address of the device you want to assign a static IP address to. You can usually find this in the device's network settings or by running a command like "ipconfig /all" in the Command Prompt (Windows) or "ifconfig" in the Terminal (macOS and Linux).
  3. Once you have the MAC address, enter it along with the desired IP address you want to assign to the device.
  4. Save the changes you made in the router's web interface. The router will now reserve the specified IP address for the device you've selected, ensuring it always gets the same IP whenever it connects to the network.

Step 5: Verify the Configuration
  1. Restart the device you assigned the static IP to or renew its IP address to apply the changes immediately.
  2. Confirm that the device now has the static IP address you assigned by checking its network settings.

Congratulations! You've successfully assigned a static IP address to a device on your home network. Remember that if you plan to assign static IP addresses to multiple devices, each IP address must be unique within your network.

Please note that the router's web interface may differ slightly between different manufacturers and models, so the steps and terminology could vary. Always refer to your router's manual for specific instructions relevant to your device. Additionally, be cautious when making changes in the router's settings, as incorrect configurations could affect network connectivity.
