So as a gamer I occasionally play some fighting games on my PS4 and I recently have made the desicion to hardline it. Of course it came with the issues of NAT type 3 and so on, and since then I have been successful in changing the NAT type to 2, but that required me to port forward a couple of ports and assign a static IP to my PS4 consol side, the issue is that my Archer CR700 has a dynamic DHCP and the the PS4 will probably change the IP, and as such there is no problem going and changing a few numbers here and there every now and then, however I can see it getting to be a bit of an annoyance in the future, and I do not see any option in giving my PS4 a static IP on my routers side. So my question is without adjusting the range on the DHCP which is set from 10 to 254, and without using DMZ, is there a way to either set a static IP to my PS4 in the router, or reserve the IP address it currently has?

 

If there is no possible way I would love some instructions in setting up my router so that it can be a 1 and done type thing where can I can set it up and not have to worry about any security issues or my PS4 reverting back to NAT type 3 when the DHCP up and decides to change the IP on it.

 

info that maybe of service:

Router : Archer CR700

 

Ports Forworded: 

TCP = 80, 443, 3478-3480

UDP = 3478-3479

 

DHCP Range: 10-254

 

DMZ: Not set up

Yes you can.  Log into your go to Advanced > Network > LAN settings.  Look at the DHCP Settings and look at the Range.  On a subnet of 255.255.255.0 you will have a range of IP x.x.x.1 through x.x.x.254.  Just set the PS4 to an address outside of this range and you will have no issues.  You may need to reduce the range to acomplish this.

Just as another quick question you mean to manually set my ip out of the range of the dhcp on the PS4 through the manual network set option in the PS4 settings and not in the router, and the only thing I have to do to the router is drop the end range of the dhcp server to a lower number correct?

Yes just choose an IP outside the range of DHCP address on the PS4 using the setup manually and static IP option on the PS4.  beyond that the only thing you may need to do is set you Port Forwarding rules on the CR700 to point to the address you assign on the PS4.
