IP & MAC Binding / Address Reservation Doesn't work!
I'm trying to control IP assignment from my router, for that reason I tried to bind the IP & MAC address, however, the devices are not getting the IPs I've defined for them. I've restarted the router as well, also, I tried disabling and then enabling IP Binding. In the logs it says successfully binded the MAC to the IP, but I'm getting the same MAC with 2 IPs, (1) this is the one I'm trying the device to bind to, device is not accessible through this IP, (2) the actual IP which the device currently has. At first I thought may be it's because of the DHCP lease time, so, I changed the lease time to 1 minute. That did force the IP of the devices to change, however, it is changing to one of the IPs I've NOT specified in the IP binding list. I've also tried to specify the IPs which are out of DHCP IP pool and also from the IP pool, but nothing seems to work.
I then tried DHCP Address Reservation, since it cannot be used when IP & MAC binding is being used, therefore, I removed all the binding and then tried to reserve IPs for my devices. However, when I do that all the devices connected through LAN do not take the reserved IP. As far WiFi is concerned, as long I've even one reserved address in the list no WiFi connection can be established. Therefore, to connect to the router through WiFi I've to remove all the Address Reservations.
This is my first time using TP-Link router, I've never seen such bizzare behavior on Asus routers. Is there anything that needs to be done differently on this TP-Link router?
