Tonido Plug IP Address Keeps Changing

Hi there,

I've been noticing this issue for several months now. What happens is my Tonido Plug IP address will change slightly, going from 192.168.1.4 to 192.168.1.6 and then back again, etc.

This is really annoying because my music library resides on a NAS attached to my Tonido Plug, and every time the IP address changes Sonos can no longer access the music library and I have to reset everything.

Is there a way to prevent the IP address from changing in this way?

Many thanks.

Can you use your LAN hub to assign an address?

I get varied IP addresseswhen I unplug and reconnect a devoice, Tonido inluded. But I suspect I could assign a fixed address using my LAN hub.

You need to set your router to assign a specific MAC Address with a specific fixed IP. It looks like your router is doing dynamic assignment and it is changing often.

Thanks for the replies.

madhan, that sounds like the solution I need.

I have a netgear router and I am looking through the settings but can't find a place to assign a specific MAC address to attached devices, although I can opt to assign a specific MAC address to the router itself.

Any tips/ideas where I should look to do this?

Never mind! I found the address reservation section and added one to reserve the current IP of the TonidoPlug.

Hopefully this means no more changes!

Thanks!
