I hope someone here might be able to help with this as the YouSee technical support were not able to.
I have a Sagecom router from YouSee, but as the wifi coverage isn’t good enough I have disabled it and now have a Deco P9 wifi mesh network that uses the YouSee as a simple modem. The problem is that the main deco unit plugged into the modem keeps losing internet connectivity.
I suspect it is due to the DHCP lease expiring and the deco not being able to automatically renew it for some reason. I am trying to stop this device from losing its lease by making it infinite. O can’t see any options on the router to let me do this though. All I can do is set the lease time up to a week for all devices (not what I want to do) or to assign reserved addresses. If I assign a reserved address, will this prevent the lease from expiring? Any help with this issue would be much appreciated as I am currently having to restart the modem about once a day and it’s very annoying.
