Beryl AX - when using AP mode is there a way to set a static IP for the Beryl?

I have gone into the advanced LuCI interface and looked at Network > Interfaces. It looks like AP mode creates a LAN bridge and adds eth0 and eth1 in it.

Is there a way to set a static IP to the Beryl itself when in AP mode?

If it is an AP on a LAN, reserve the IP for it on the DHCP server controlling the LAN?

I wish I could. The router I’m using does not have a way to reserve IP addresses - Netgear nighthawk M6 hotspot

or repeater Mode Extended Network?

On LuCI>Interfaces>LAN switch the protocol to Static address instead of DHCP.
Then write your address on “IPv4 address” and on “IPv4 gateway” write your Netgear nighthawk address.

Thank you for the reply. I had tried that prior and it reverted because I did not log into the new IP to confirm it. For reference complete the above then:

  • Click Save and Apply
  • navigate to the new IP of the device
  • log into the base UI and the LuCI UI
  • I then got the “configuration applied” message.

I did not realize I had to confirm it. You have 80 or so seconds to login at the new address or it will begin the rollback process.

Hope this may help others.
