Manually assigning a static IP address

I have a device with a static IP address that needs to work with my eero 6 pro.

This device DOES NOT have DHCP capabilities. I can set whatever IP address on it I want, but when I select one with what I think is valid, I cannot access it.

I set the eero to Manual IP mode with the following settings for lease range

Subnet IP:


Starting IP

Ending IP


I put my device at and created a reservation for it, but cannot access it.

Am I missing something?

  • Hello JamesL70 ,

    It doesn't sound like you setup the IP reservation in the eero app as well. Did you setup the IP reservation in the eero app? If not you can go to Settings -> Network Settings -> Reservations & port forwarding -> click on Add a reservation -> scroll down and click on Enter manually and you can input the device's information there.

    If you have already done that please double check and make sure the MAC ID that you input into the eero app is correct as well. 

  • Thanks for the tip. I am new to Eero and this was largely my fault.

    Seems that when I changed the lease range, I still had some devices in previous range and that was messing things up. When I reset the IP address of all the devices, things started coming together.
