I have an Orbi router which I use to set up various static IPs for devices on my local network. It has an address reservation table looking something like this:
|IP Address||Device Name||MAC Address|
I’ve now set up Pi-hole as my DNS and DHCP server. It looks like some of these mappings have been carried across to Pi-hole’s “Currently active DHCP leases” table, but have been assigned different IPs based on the range. I also see the “Static DHCP leases configuration” table below seems to be separate and empty.
After Pi-hole setup these local devices with their static IPs are no longer accessible on my network. What should I be doing here to fix these devices, keeping the original IP address set on them if possible?
- Should I be removing these address reservations in Orbi and use only Pi-hole’s “Static DHCP leases configuration” table for this instead?
- Should I change the IP range in the DHCP settings to exclude, or include these previously set up devices? Devices don’t seem to get reassigned IPs after I change this range.
Any insight on what I should be doing here to fix my static IPs is appreciated!
