Usually your router assigns dynamic IP addresses to your devices. Sometimes you need additional control over the assignment of a static IP address that does not change. Here’s how to do it on an Eero router.

CONNECTED: How to Get the Most Out of Your Eero Mesh Wi-Fi System

The Eero mesh Wi-Fi system has many great, easy-to-use features, including some advanced controls. Setting static IP addresses for devices is one of them. The settings in the Eero app are pretty easy to navigate, and you can usually find what you want with no problem. Finding the settings to use a static IP address is a bit trickier because it’s not listed as «static IP» or something like that, but in the «Reservation» section.

To get started, open the Eero app on your phone and tap the menu button in the top left corner of the screen.

Click Network Settings.

Scroll down to the bottom of the page and then click on the Advanced Settings category.

Click Booking and Port Forwarding.

Select the «Add Reservation» entry.

The device selection page displays all the devices connected to your router. Click on the specific device for which you want to set up a static IP address.

On the next screen, tap the IP address and then enter the address you want the device to have. Click «Save» in the top right corner.

After that, the device you have chosen will appear in the list of bookings and you are ready to go. From now on, your Eero router will keep this IP address assigned to this device.

If you want to remove the static IP address and return to using a dynamic address for this device, return to the Reservation and Port Forwarding page, tap the device, and then click Remove Reservation at the bottom of the device’s IP reservation. page
