The EdgeRouter will be configured to issue a DHCP assigned Static Mapping to the UAP-Pro access point.

The Basic Setup wizard will automatically configure the LAN DHCP server. See the Beginners Guide to EdgeRouter article for more information.

When not using the wizard, follow the steps below to manually add a DHCP server:

GUI: Access the EdgeRouter Web UI.

1. Navigate to the Services tab to add a DHCP server.

Services > DHCP Server > + Add DHCP Server

2. Define the DHCP parameters such as the subnet range and DNS servers.

DHCP Name: LAN1
Subnet: 192.168.1.0/24
Range Start: 192.168.1.38
Range Stop: 192.168.1.243
Router: 192.168.1.1
DNS1: 192.168.1.1
DNS2: <blank>
UniFi Controller: <blank>
Enable: Checked

2. After the server has been created, it will appear in the list in the DHCP Server tab.

3. The dynamic DHCP assigned address for a known client can be easily converted to a static mapping.

Services > DHCP Server > LAN1 > Actions > View Leases

4. Select the Map Static IP option for the dynamic lease that needs to converted to a static mapping.

5. Change the IP address to the new value (192.168.1.240 in this example) and optionally change the name.

6. Navigate to the Static MAC/IP Mapping tab to verify or alter the new mapping. 

7.   From this menu, it is also possible to pre-configure a static mapping if a host is not yet assigned a dynamic address. 

Static MAC/IP Mapping > Create New Mapping

ID: uap-pro
MAC Address: <mac-address>
IP Address:
192.168.1.240

The above configuration can also be set using the CLI:

CLI: Access the Command Line Interface.You can do this using the CLI button in the GUI or by using a program such as PuTTY.
