DHCP Reservations

This is in the way of feedback.. 


I setup my 2 node Velop network with a struggle, because the web dashboard is different than the app dashboard.. different look, feel, features & capabilities.  So I had to struggle going back and forth to see and do everything.  Strange.   


SO, I got it all setup with dhcp reservations and port forwarding and such.   For personal reaons I had previously setup up computer A with a dedicated reserved IP address through DHCP Reseravtions.  Worked great.  


Then .. I went and put in a new network card in computer A.  I noticed that the new network card had a different MAC address and thus was being assigned a completely different IP address.   SO ... I went into DHCP reservations using the Web Dashboard and changed the MAC address for Computer A and saved it   Thought this would automatically start to give Computer A the address I wanted it to have... but NO JOY.  I spent 30 minutes online with tech support and NO JOY.  There just was no way in the Velop Router Admin configuration to have a specific IP address assigned to A.  I had to change a number of other settings as a work aroiund.   Not a happy user.  Currently looking at other routers.
