Model: OC200  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.7.3 Build 20201119 Rel.63433

Hello,

I have TP-Link Tapo C200 cam and sending data to Synology nas Surveillance center. I set on Omada OC200 figed IP address 192.168.0.50. Unfortunately DHCP server assigned different IP. Sometimes the server does not allocate any IP after restart. Tapo CAM is not possible set a fixed IP.

Where is mistake?

Pavel

If the DHCP reservation still doesn't work with the latest controller version and gateway firmware, you may try the Beta firmware from the solution post below:

@PavelV 

 

I had a similar problem that a device wouldn't accept its fixed IP address. May not be of any help but worth considering. Bit of a timeline to explain what had happened:

 

Device 1 - Remove fixed IP (192.168.0.20)

Device 1 - Unplug

Device 2 - Plugin (gets assigned DHCP IP 192.168.0.111)

Device 2 - Assign fixed IP (192.168.0.20)

Device 2 - Reboot

Device 2 - Still assigned to DHCP IP of 192.168.0.111

 

No matter how many times i refreshed the IP on Device 2 it didnt work. I even left it 24hours and still no joy. The solution was to unplug Device 2, plug device 1 back in and make sure it gets another IP address allocated to it. Then i plugged device 1 back in and it worked.

 

So what i should have done is:

 

Device 1 - Remove fixed IP (192.168.0.20)

Device 1 - Reboot

Device 1 - Gets assigned (192.168.0.40)

Device 1 - Unplug

Device 2 - Plugin (gets assigned DHCP IP(192.168.0.111)

Device 2 - Assign static IP (192.168.0.20)

Device 2 - Reboot

Device 2 - Now has Static IP 192.168.0.20

you guys are doing this really wrong

 

what a proper DHCP workflow is

 

device (your IP cam etc) online -> device talk to DHCP(this will most likely on your router) and ask for IP assignment -> DHCP assign proper IP back to device -> device on net

 

what you guys are doing

 

device (your IP cam etc) online -> device talk to DHCP and say "hey my IP is 192.168.0.20" -> DHCP confused because it never assigned this IP out to this device, or worst case, this IP is in already use by another device on net -> DHCP probably decide to ignore the device self assigned IP and assign a proper one -> device on net with a different IP

 

 

so 99% of the chance, you do not want to assign a fixed IP on OC200 to your device and try to fool the DHCP server on your router

instead you should set a static assignment on your router's DHCP table so your device will always get a static IP through it!!

Dear @Adoril@PavelV,

 

May I know the model number of your gateway router, is it TL-R605 or ER7206?

Dear @PavelV, @Adoril,

 

There is a beta firmware available for the TL-R605 router, which is related to the DHCP issue.

 

I'd like to forward you to the TP-Link support team to try the Beta firmware, they will contact you with your registered email address later.

 

Thank you for your support and trust. Have a nice day!

@Fae Hey there. I am also facing the same issue, and unfortunately, with the same Tapo C200 camera. Using TP-link TL-R605 router. Can you please help me get the beta firmware? Thanks.

This is an old thread, the beta firmware has already been merged into the current latest firmware ER605(UN)_V1_1.1.1_20210723

[New Firmware] The firmware v1.1.1 has been released for both ER605 and ER7206 by August 9, 2021

 

Please ensure your router is running with the latest firmware first.

If you are trying to fix an IP address for your camera, please ensure the fixed IP address is within the DHCP IP Pool range.

And you may restart the camera to have a check after you configure the fixed IP settings.

 

If you still have an issue, you may start a new thread and elaborate on the problem you are facing so that we can better assist you.
