remove from Dlink DHCP static table
I recently got a nice shiny D-link-DSL-2640R router for my home.
In the Lan setup page you can set some Mac addresses to receive a static Ip address. I would like to do this is I am starting to setup scripts for backups which require a static IP.
I have had two small problems.
The first is that I cannot see a button to remove entries from this table, for instance if I want to change the IP address of a computer in it and I would prefer to configure static addresses in the router's DHCP table than change the DHCP range and set the addresses manually on each computer.
The second problem is more of a speculation/query.
I have a very old unmanaged D-Link 5 port hub that I am using to minimize wires. There is an auto address showing up in the table as 0.0.0.0 .Could this be the hub as it has no address anywhere else ( I don't know much about hubs and switches) and if so would a cheap switch show up with its own IP in the table?
EDIT: the address 0.0.0.0 has the same MAC as one of the computers in the static table. I don't really understand this unless the router grabs the MAC from the first computer connected to the hub.
