Good to know: DHCP IP reservation can only be controlled through the Cogeco Wi-Fi app for Residential customers using a F@st 3896 modem or Adtran SDG 854-v6 router. If you’re a Business client, or a Residential customer with a different modem, you would need to set it up directly through the modem’s settings.

By default, your devices will receive a dynamic IP address, meaning this address may change periodically. By setting a static IP for specific devices on your network through DHCP IP reservation, they will always be assigned the same IP address. This is not required for most devices, but can be useful when an external device, website or service needs to remember your IP address.

Note: DHCP IP reservation is only available for devices connected through Wi-Fi. Devices connected directly to the modem via Ethernet are automatically assigned a dynamic IP address.
