    IP Address won't Stick

    Running LMS 7.9.3 - 1584993250 on a Win10 box. I've been using this setup with my Radio for many years with no unsolvable issues.

    I just moved and had the place wired with CAT5 and the Radio is connected to Ethernet. However, the IP address will not stick. I have manually entered it a number of times today and the end result is that LMS Control Panel shows it as a completely different address. I'm trying to get 192.168.1.11 to be the static address. The IP showing in the Control Panel is 169-254-2xx.xx. And yes, the Control Panel shows the correct address for the Server.

    I have DHCP and WiFi turned off at the router. I have a Touch somewhere in one of the cartons yet to be unpacked so I can't test to see if that is doing the same thing. But it wouldn't matter as I need the Radio to be connected first.

    Suggestions?

    Thanks.

    EDIT - for whatever reason it appears that the Radio needs to be power-cycled after setting the IP. It is now sticking as expected.

    There now appears to be another issue. Using the web UI I can't access LMS settings, plugins, etc. I have tried Waterfox, Firefox, Chrome, and IE. All of the end up on a blank page. It almost feels like a network issue, but there's connectivity between the Win10 box I use as a main computer and the Win10 box where LMS lives. I can ping one from the other. Again, this is the exact same setup I had before the move. The only network change is in the IP address provided by my ISP.

    Suggestions?

    It is network related.
    169.254.x.x means no valid IP address.
    Turn DHCP on the router back on.
    Let the PC get a dynamic address.
    Find the PC's MAC addresss by reference to the DHCP lease table.
    Reserve the .11 IP address to the MAC address from within the Router's DHCP Reservations area.
    Let everything else on the network use dynamic addresses.

    Thanks for that. I don't know why or how, but all of a sudden the desired local IP address is sticking.
