I have been having a problem with the wifi connection on my iPad. After much research online, I have narrowed it down to an ip address lease renewal bug. The iPad drops connection when the ip address lease expires.
The suggested fix is to assign a static ip address for the iPad based on its MAC address and to enter the 'necessary values' in this screen on the iPad:
My question is: how do I assign a static ip to the iPad based on its MAC address? And how to I find out what these values are?
I know that I need to pick an ip address above the 'DHCP range', and I know what this range is. But I don't know how to tell the router to assign a static ip to the iPad and get the relevant numbers to fill in on the above screen. If it makes a difference, my router is a BT home hub 3.
I have very little knowledge of networking and would appreciate any help with this.
