I have a bunch of 4 HR22s and one HR20 hooked up successfully via SWM and DECA and I noticed that my only device that has a static IP address is the HR20. I decided to switch the others to static addresses in preparation for adding a HR34 and figured MRV would be more stable in that config.

I changed two of the HR22s over to static IPs and they still see the network and the other receivers but they both give an error that they can't see the Internet. Is there something else that needs to be reset for this to work?

I checked my router and my DHCP server starts giving out IPs at and my HR20 already had .120 so I gave the others .121 & .122.

What is the gateway and DNS settings? Static IP's won't do anything to help with networking unless your router has issues. If you really want just reserve them in your DHCP settings. This way if your ISP changes their DNS server you won't have issues out of nowhere.

OK, after running the network setup or network test again they now see the Internet.
