    For Static IPs, click on Devices, find the one you want to have a static IP, click on it and scroll down to where it shows its IP address, click on that and change it from Dynamic to Reserved, then put in what you want (and can change the name there too).

    Thanks, Rich - that is an option as well - I some pain getting the Blue setup happy with Fritz and DHCP, so ended up setting up the APs before turning off DHCP, as I had some issues with the APs being monitored so they have been disabled.

    I will try the other way 'round on Purple with the APs and see how things work - main issue was one PC and realtime DVB-C streaming from the FritzBox where monitoring totally trashed the DVB transport streams, so ended up going down a route where reversion was easier.

    Firewalla team, are we still recommending to disable monitoring for mesh APs on the network with DHCP overlay?  In theory, I *could* disable the main Fritz AP (which paints about 1/3 of of my apartment) but would then need to invest in more equipment to use the Purple in Router Mode, and the Purple upgrade was expensive enough already ;-)

    DHCP mode, if you are running into issues with performance, then you should turn monitoring off the AP's. Otherwise, you should be okay.
