Buffalo HD-CELU2 Keep Changing Its IP Address
« on: December 21, 2009, 01:11:59 pm »
   

Here is what I have:

Host Name  HD-CELU2-807C
Model Name  HD-CELU2
IP Address  192.168.1.250
HDD Space Used  15.38 GB / 465.76 GB ( 3.30% )  
HD Mode  Ethernet  
Firmware Version  BUF-CELU2-1.4.7 LOADER 3.5W1.9

 

This has been in place for a year.  All 9 of our computers save to this.  It has a static IP assigned.  All computers are assigned via DHCP through the router.

 

Recently, every week or so, the Buffalo will change its IP address to obtain from DHCP.  Once I set it back t static it is ok.

 

Any idea why this would be happening?

I've never heard of that before.. Does it seem like the other settings are also resetting?

No just the IP address.

No, I have never heard of that before.  If you set it on a static it should remain on the static unless reset.

I dont know what kind of router you have but mine has a setting where you can reserve the ipaddress. Its called DHCP reservation and what it does is that when a product restarts or requests an ipaddress from the router, the router checks its mac address and knows that it should be 192.168.1.250 in your case. My router is a Dlink,  you might want to check for that it might help you keep it on the same address.
