Would you consider this expected behavior for a router (RVS4000)?

    I have an RVS4000. I have DHCP server enabled for the LAN, and I have it set to give out ips starting at .150 through to .200. Then, I have a static ip map to a mac address, which I want to be ip .2. This does not work, the router will not give that mac address .2, I tried rebooting the router and the device, in different orders, everything.

    Anyway, I thought about this, and tried tweaking the DHCP assignment range. I went ahead and changed it to assign addresses starting at .2 through .50, and viola, now it will assign that mac address .2.

    In my opinion the assignment range should not be considered for static ip maps. A static ip map is a static ip map, period.

    What do you think, bug, or how it should be?

    RVS4000 do not assign IP address if it is out of range.

    I think I already made that pretty clear in my post. My question wasn't whether it did.

    It sounds like an unnecessary restriction in this router. Is there any problem to use a real static ip (not DHCP Static IP) for on those machines with known MAC addresses?

    Yes, but its an inconvenience. This particular one is a wireless access point, and if I do a static ip in the AP itself I also have to manually assign DNS servers, so that kinda sucks if my isp changes DNS ips.
