Assign different clients IP address by an MN-700 Base Station

Your MN700 Base Station needs to identify each client and provide the routing information as well as direct packets to their respective destinations while assigning different IP addresses. As the MN-700 Base Station has its own operating system embedded in the box, it would not affect the usage of SP1 nor SP2 as the entire process will remain same. You require a connection to the MN-700 Base Station and a web browser like the Internet Explorer® or Mozilla® Firefox® to assign IP addresses.

Ways to assign different IPs with you MN-700 Base Station

You can assign IP addresses to clients in two ways that can be statically or dynamically. To assign IP address dynamically you should simply specify the starting IP address to use and the maximum number of clients those are expected to connect to the MN-700 Base Station. You can also assign addresses with the help of the DHCP server, also known as Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol as it helps to retrieve IP address assignments.

To assign IP addresses statically, you need to pair up each client’s MAC address to a specific IP address. The major drawback of this option is that the IP address of each client would never change.

Choosing an option

Clients can choose one from the mentioned options as it depends on their specific use or requirements. Assigned IP addresses dynamically are suited for deployments where the users are not fixed. On the other hand, static IP addresses are beneficial for fixed computers that always connect to the network. Static IP addresses lets you set-up services where the IP address is necessary, like a local web server.
Possible Issues

Problems will only occur when computers with a fixed IP address attempts to connect to the network and conflicts occur. It also happens with static assignment but attention should be paid to assign addresses as you may unintentionally assign the same IP address to two different clients.
