How to Assign a Static IP on Netgear AC750 Router?
An IP address is a set of various numbers used for identifying devices that are connected to the internet. If the Internet Protocol address is not used properly, then your device would not be able to communicate with other devices. There are two types of IP addresses that can be used by people – dynamic and static. Here in this blog, we’re going to shed light on the process of how to assign a static IP address on Netgear AC750 router.
Note: Although we are taking AC750 as a reference, you can use any Netgear router model you have.
Before getting down to the process of reserving an IP address, let’s first make you understand the difference between dynamic and static IP address
- Dynamic IP: Dynamic IP addresses are assigned automatically by your router to various devices with the help of DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) and can be changed automatically over time.
- Static IP: On the other hand, static IP addresses are unchanging IP addresses. Using static IP addresses is a great attempt when it comes to troubleshooting your network. It is also needed for services that must connect to the internet with the help of an IP address rather than using a domain name.
It is expected that you now get the difference between dynamic vs static IP. Now, if you want to assign a static IP on your Netgear router, here are the steps you need to follow.
