    I think I know what it is, but how can I verify via the app or another way?

    Yup. Under Settings, System Info in the app is one way.

    Another way is look for your GenieGo's MAC address (on the bottom label) and check your router's DHCP table to see which IP address that MAC was assigned.

    Which app are you using?

    On the iPhone/iPad and PC app, near the top right corner there are two icons. One is Settings (gear icon); other is the Help ("?" icon).

    Click on the Help icon and then System Info.

    Your router should report in its friendly name, which in my household contains the word, "nomad", the original name of GenieGo

    Depends on the router software. Some report friendly names, some don't. Mine just reports the MAC address.

    OTOH, my router reports (and respects) any static IP addresses it finds on my LAN. Many routers only report DHCP assigned addresses.

    Ah, the error of generalizing based on my experience with the last five routers I've had- two Netgear, two supplied by ATT U-verse, and an Apple Airport. I guess my statement stands for some meanings of "should". :)

    I can't imagine a router that would diss a fixed IP on one's owned network, not one that cost more than $40 in the last five years, but don't doubt that they exist.
