I have 1 desktop, 2 laptops, 2 printers, 1 phone, 1 other device connecting wirelessly to router.
When they're all happy it's great. When they're not 😞
I have some software that synchronises my phone to Outlook, and it requires the desktop to always have 22.214.171.124 as it's I.P.Address.
Following power cuts/ router /broadband issues, sometimes it loses this IP Address and gets a different address.
Sometimes I can switch off all other devices, re-start the desktop and all is OK.
Sometimes I have to reset the router as well.
Sometimes, like today, noting works.
The help for the software is hopeless. Asks me to do something on my phone that doesn't exist. Their help is not helpful, and requires me to reset it all from scratch, and then I lose information from either the phone or Outlook.
I have a Plusnet Hub One router, Windows 10 on computers, Android phone.
Is there a way to make the destop always have 126.96.36.199, or to get it back.
