    Hello everybody!

    I've tried creating a static IP on a Tomato'd WRT54G and WHR-HP-G54 without any success. After saving my settings, the Mac Address field shows up as "00:00:00:00:00:00" and the host name is blank. Basically, I can't get the settings to stick.

    Has anyone else experienced this problem?

    every device on my network uses static dhcp. granted, that was all setup a couple releases ago and i haven't wiped NVRAM since then, so i can't guarantee it would all work if i tried setting it up right now.

    did you remember to click save at the bottom of the page after create the table entry?

    Yes on the save question.

    Now that I am home I think I will just reset my NVRAM and try to setup the static DHCP entries first. I'll know in a few minutes if it works...

    Thanks for your replies. :)

    Using Ver1.01 I just created a static entry... I went to devicelist and clicked on the related ip at wich point I was sent to the static dhcp page. I then clicked ADD and then SAVE.... and it has retained the setting.

    Digitalgeek, you are right- I was not hitting ADD before I hit SAVE. I was assuming that the content in the bottom editable row would save. I'm a former DD-WRT guy and the ADD\Save process is different in Tomato. Thanks again for the replies.

    Go Tomato!

    PS. If someone is willing to humor me once more: I can't get the WINS address to save on the "Basic: Network" page. Can anyone tell me if I am once again being an idiot!?

    I just tried it and the WINS address doesn't save for me either. I guess not too many people use WINS servers at home and this wasn't caught in the testing. I think you've found a bug.

    Jon posts an email address at the Tomato home page (it's at the bottom) to which you can send bug reports. I suggest that you do so.

    I'm not posting the email address here to protect Jon from bots that look for email addresses on forums and then spam the address.
