I'm using MacBook Air running MacOS Sierra and using an IP address(provided by my college) that has been bound to my device's MAC address
ie- My device's MAC address is has been bonded with a specific IP address provided by the College's network administrators.
So, I've manually configured the network connection with that specific IP address.
Now, when I connect to my phone's wi-fi (Redmi 4A), it gets connected (
DHCP), the internet works well and after 2-3 minutes the internet finally disconnects even though I'm still connected to my phone's wi-fi.
Is this due to the manual network settings set only for the IP address provided by the college.
I found that the manual setting for the college wifi is causing a problem. When connecting to phone's wifi, the
Using DHCP option doesn't get automatically selected.
So, what I did is that when connecting to my phone's wifi, I selected the
Using DHCP and it worked well.
But the problem now is that when I reconnect to my college wifi, the
Configure IPv4 now shows
Using DHCP which I had previously selected when connecting to my phone's wifi.
Hence, when connecting to the college wifi, all the manual settings have disappeared and I have to fill the configuration details again.
Please suggest some workaround to deal with the above problem. I don't want to reconfigure all the
manual settings again and again when I switch between the 2 wifis.
