Have just started using the new BT smart hub and on previous hubs have been able to assign the IP address to each network device via the hub set-up page.
Have tried this on the smart hub and whilst the facility exists it will not save the IP address. Having looked on the Internet this appears to be a common problem.
I wondered whether anyone had found an easy workaround for this issue?
I have 10 zones, a multitude of iPods, iPads, iPhones, kindles and heaven-only-knows what else sitting on my network and I found that by assigning the IP's I was less subject to duplications and storms. Since swapping to the smart hub I have again been plagued with drop-outs to the extent that BT are now sending me a replacement as it appears to have an issue - that however won't resolve the IP address thing.
Any help greatly appreciated as always
