How do I set up DHCP IP reservation in the Cogeco Wi-Fi App?

Good to know: DHCP IP reservation is only controlled through the Cogeco Wi-Fi app for Residential customers using a F@st 3896 modem. If you’re a Business client, or a Residential customer with a different modem, this can be set 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: IP reservation will only be available for devices connected via Wi-Fi. Devices connected directly to the modem via Ethernet will automatically be assigned a dynamic IP address.
