Hello all,

 

Our cafe runs on Omada-only equipment (TL-R605 Omada router, 4x EAP225 AP, OC200 controller). Everything works great.

 

Just one question : is it possible to set the IP of the 4 access point via DHCP reservation (they don't appear in the "connected devices" panel, so I cannot do it there, as I did for the other equipments - the OC200, the PiHole, the NVR & cameras are all through DHCP reservation).

 

Thanks,

 

PapyPom

Dear @js_online,

 

Please add address reservation. This is basic Router functionality and must be present.

 

Thank you for your valued suggestion. I've reported this to the developer team for further evaluation, there is a plan to support DHCP Reservation for Omada EAP/Switch in the future (perhaps on the Omada Controller v5.0 or later version).

 

Please also review Adopting process because it doing nothing and raising issues.

 

Sorry for any trouble caused during the adopting process, I've also reported this to the developer team, they may optimize it (perhaps on the Omada Controller v5.0 or later version) by supporting VLAN Interface config before adopting the Omada gateway.

 

In addition, the TP-Link team has made a FAQ to help our customers to add the Omada Gateway to the network.

Thank you for your support and trust on TP-Link products. Cheers!

Best Regards!

Dear @Parr_IT,

 

I just bought a new TP-Link stack for my IP security camera setup and IP reservations are vital to keeping my 18 camera's straight with my DVR.

 

At present, the TL-R605 in Controller mode can reserve DHCP for clients, but just not for Omada EAP/Switch.

 

If you just want to reserve IP addresses for your IP cameras, the TL-R605 router in Controller mode can make it.

 

Note: go to Clients -> click the connected IP cam and locate to Config to configure Use Fixed IP Address

 

 

 

Best Regards!

I'm afraid that there is no option to do DHCP reservation for the EAP.

 

If it helps, you can go to Devices -> click on the specific EAP -> Config -> IP Settings to manually set a Static IP for the EAP instead.

Best Regards!

@Fae  is this just "not yet implemented", or will the DHCP-Reservation never be a part of the Omada interface? I find it astonishing that it's available on TL-R605 interface directly, but once you configure via OC200, that option is just not there and you can't go back to configuring TL-R650 directly anymore...

Dear @Zedan_ises,

The TL-R605 in Controller mode doesn't support the DHCP Reservation for Omada EAP for the time being.

I've forwarded this to the developer team for further evaluation. Hoping it be added in the near future.

Best Regards!

Please add address reservation. This is basic Router functionality and must be present. 

This is already available, thanks for for Info:
Note: go to Clients -> click the connected IP cam and locate to Config to configure Use Fixed IP Address

 


Please also review Adopting process because it doing nothing and raising issues.
I pre-configure TL-R605 as standalone with 192.168.8.1 ip address (I used 192.168.8.1 to have less work after swtiching original router) and expected that Cloud will be smart enought to reuse parameters: LAN Settings, DHCP static IP addresses, Virtal Servers/Port forwaring, etc, but during adoptation instead of using existing parameters Cloud applied default LAN address and used nothing so I was forced to change lan address manually in Cloud and restore overwritten parameters from Backup file. After doing this I got it working finally as expected but I was really surprised that only small part of Router parameters is available in Cloud, its kind of incomplete.

@Fae 

Would be very interested in this.   I just bought a new TP-Link stack for my IP security camera setup and IP reservations are vital to keeping my 18 camera's straight with my DVR.  Please Let me know if there is a feature request board and I will fill out a form if needed.  As others have said this is a common function for this class of router with DHCP services.

@Fae 
Thanks for sharing screenshot with IP address reservation, will test it today.
I was expecting separate screen for this like in Standalone mode and did not find from the first look.

HI @PapyPom

I'm still looking for the same issue. Before adopting My tl-R605 the availability of DHCP Address reservation was present on GUI of the gateway.

After adopting it on Omada OC200 (latest fw&sw version) I'm unable to find this option

The only way is to set manually the Ip for those peripherals for which I need this method, btw is not a best solution.

I'm still waithing for a new upg of Omada SND in order to improvw this funtion already present on tl-r605 on stand-alone config

Best regards

Matteo
