Daily dropouts due to IP address changes?
My connections drops several times on a daily basis.
I've been reading something about IP addresses changing and causing dropouts? I have zero knowledge on the topic and might not be explaining the issue properly. Is there any simple way to verify if that's the issue? Is it something I have to check with the ISP or something that I can do by setting up my network properly?
As far as eero settings, everything is done through their app. There are a few network settings I can see that might be relevant. Maybe someone can guide me through what I need to change?
1) WAN Type
I have 3 options here:
if I select this, I get no internet.
- Static IP
I get 3 fields to fill up here, IP address, Subnet mask, and Router IP. I haven't tried selecting this option because I don't know if this is what I'm supposed to work with.
This is the current selection and what I think our ISP works with. I got the user/pass from the ISP, typed it in, and got internet connected to my main router.
2) DHCP & NAT
I have 3 options again here:
This is the current selection and what is assigned by default, I never messed with it.
- Manual IP
Selecting this shows two menus. First I would have to select the IP address prefix (192.168.0.0, 10.0.0.0 or, 126.96.36.199). Second, I would have to select the lease range (Subnet IP, Subnet Mask, Starting IP, Ending IP)
As far as I understand, this setting is only for when you have a main router between the ONT and main eero router.
3) Reservation & Port forwarding
I dont know if this is relevant.
This setting is set to on, but I doubt it has anything to do with the problem?
