Hardware Version:
Firmware Version: 4.4.6

I run an Omada system, including a TL-R605 as my router, 1 x EAP265HD, 1 x EAP245, and 2 x EAP115 as access points. 

 

The Camera, I am using (only one IP camera as of now), is a Tapo C200.

 

As of now, I am on version 4.4.6 of the Omada Controller, and my router (TL-R605 v1.0) version is 1.1.1

 

The setup is managed by Omada SDN on Docker.

 

Everything works fine, except, SDN does not respect static IP conditions for Cameras, and DVR. 

It does not matter what I do, the system assigns a random IP on every new lease and on every restart. This is causing me a lot of trouble. Why does the system do that? I have seen a lot of complaints in the forum with no clear answers. One of the mods even asked me to create my own thread. So, here I am. 

 

Can someone please help me get a grip on this problem? I am completely invested in the Omada, but if my cameras are not working, then it would be of no use! Attaching a screenshot for example. This happens all the time, and most of the time, the IP changes between 174 and 175. No other devices in the network are using 192.168.10.174, and it is only assigned for this device. 

 

 

Any input is highly appreciated. 

 

Cheers

@Pine 

 

Just to confirm, is the IP you have reserved for this camera in the DHCP range?

If so, then I think you can wait for the last firmware version V5, maybe V5 will optimize it.

 

Wish you Merry Chrismas!

@Virgo Merry Christmas! 

Thanks for the reply.

 

Yes, the allocated IP is within the DHCP range. 

 

When can we expect the new firmware V5 (for Omada SDN I believe)?

 

Cheers

@Pine 

This is a very old issue and like many other issues (such as clients disappearing from the list for no reason), you need to learn to live with it like me and many others. These bugs are usually not a controller issue, but rather the TL-R605. This specific router does not seem to get much attention when it comes to bug fixes, especially being V1 hardware. I think eventually we may have other options to upgrade.
