Unlocking BT 2Wire 2700HGV Business Hub (wireless router)


Contents > Advanced Configuration:




Assigning fixed IP addresses to devices from the DHCP pool

(BT firmware v5.29.107.12 screenshots shown here)


For the majority of users, there probably won't be any need to specifically allocate an IP address to any of your devices (PCs, games consoles etc).

One nice feature of the BT hub is that it remembers the IP address it previously assigned to a device, so even if the hub loses power momentarily and/or is rebooted, the hub will remember what it previously assigned to various devices, and therefore won't attempt to supply a previously assigned IP address to a different device.
