Static DHCP shown in Status as offline



  • Hi all,

    Properly a silly question, but if one don't ask then one don't get answer.

    I have some static IPs on my LAN, when I check their status under Status DHCP leases they appears as offline as per attached screenshot - how come?

    Thanks Steen

  • I have some that are seen that way as well, but thats over wireless, my wired devices that get a static from dhcp are seen as online.

    Hi XIII,

    The 3 first are via LAN and the 3 last is via Wireless, well connected to the LAN port of the Wireless Router in other room as I do not yet have a LAN cable there.
    So this is the way it should be?

  • That checks whether that IP is live in the firewall's ARP cache (the only way it can tell if something is alive), if the host hasn't tried to get to the Internet in several minutes it'll show offline.
