How can I reserve a static IP through the Plume App?

What is a static IP?

While most cases do not require it, it is possible to reserve a static IP address for your devices in the Plume app. By default, devices use dynamic IP addresses assigned by the network upon connection and will change over time. Static IP addresses, however, do not change. This can be useful when an external device, website, or service needs to remember your IP address.

Please note: Your StellarWiFi network must be in Router mode to configure a static IP using the Plume App. If you are in Bridge mode, this feature must be configured through your router’s settings.

Pods themselves can only be assigned a static IP through your router while in Bridge mode.

Static WAN IP

At this time, pods are unable to be assigned a static WAN IP. For ISP connections that require this, you will need to keep your existing router and operate StellarWiFi in Bridge mode.
