Reserve IP Address in Router using DHCP Server Android/Windows – DHCP Binding


hello tutorial shows you how to reserve
IP address in router using DHCP server examples on Android and Windows 10
let me quickly explain what is DHCP server and how it works DHCP dynamic
host configuration protocol is a network protocol that enables a server to
automatically assign an IP address to your network devices from a defined
range of numbers that is the scope configured for a given network DHCP
server dynamically distributes network configuration parameters my IP address keeps changing
example when computer connects to the network it requests an IP address from
the router then DHCP server automatically allocates an IP address to
the computer for a specific time typically a DHCP server renews your
lease automatically without you having to do anything however if the IP
addresses lease expires you’ll be assigned a new IP address so the IP allocation is given for some
time and can change after it’s expired or after reconnection you don’t have many devices in your
network then your device might get the same IP address again but there’s no
guarantee to put it briefly the DHCP server can assign any available IP
address it wants IP address reservation or dhcp binding our internal IP from changing you need
to enter routers web interface and allocate your device a static IP address
while DHCP sever dynamically assign an IP address every time a device connects
to the network my nighty to Mac could avoid IP address changing with
reconnection once a specified IP address and a device’s MAC address are bound the
IP address will be reserved for the device and the device will get that IP
address every time it connects to the router
let’s reserved IP addresses for my devices to find all Network devices you
need to download and install advanced IP scanner all useful links can be found
