Trying to set Address reservation outside of the DHCP server pool
I've done this on other tp-link routers since I have cameras that I want to get to regardless of my location in the world. In the past I would set the DHCP server pool to a range of 50 to 139. I would out my cameras and other items I wanted to be static IP's above 139 or below 50 and everything was good. My C9 just to a dump on the wifi side and I replaced it with this AX 1800 and when I tried to set up my address reservation list outside of the server pool the set up page gives me an error and says it's outside of the server pool.
If I try and trick it by setting the server pool to 35 - 254 set my addresses up and then reset the pool to 50 - 139 which the router setup page let's me do I couldn't reach any of the items or cameras below 50 and above 139. I emailed tech support and I didn't get an answer that made any sence and link to the instructions, which I've read.
Right now I have the DHCP server pool set at 50 to 254 and I have my DT computer IP which is wired, set to obtain an IP address automatically and set the MAC address reservation in the router set at 40 and that does work, but the wireless devices no joy.
As I've said that is how I've always setup my reservation list and server pool with my other tp link routers, if fact the temporary Archer A8 I used until I got the new one I had the reservation/server pool set up that way.
Any ideas on the issue?
