Thanks. Now I understand. But do those devices for which you want to allocate an "IP Reservation" based on their MAC address not have the ability to configure a fixed IP on them?
If you can't preconfigure these devices with their own, unique IP address, you can always disable the dhcp on the W35, and allow the Airport Extreme to provide that function. You really need, and probably should have, only one device on your LAN acting as dhcp server anyway. And depending on your point of view, it may be preferable to allow the Airport Extreme to do the dhcp server function. That will allow the W35 to devote all its resources to doing the cellular communications and router functions, while the Airport Extreme, which would essentially be idling anyway, can do the dhcp functions.
UPDATE - I have turned off the DHCP in the W35 and turned on DHCP in the Airport Extreme and then assigned IP's in the DHCP of the Extreme - Seems to work just fine.
The Ericsson W35 is working well !! What a relief
The Netcomm unit is sitting in a corner, unplugged, useless
Maybe some day there will be a firmware upgrade for it. I feel sorry for all those people struggling with it. I know 3 people in my small town who have cancelled and gone to Bell's turbo hub and had good success.
thanks for the update. It is always gratifying to hear that someone has had success and has found a solution as a result of our postings.
My impression is that you should not hold your breath waiting for a firmware update for anything sold by Rogers. The Netcomm problems have been widely publicized here, and there has never been any indication that Rogers was even considering firmware updates.
I know that the firmware on the W35 seems old, as it is dated October 2009. However, there have never been any identified problems with the use of the W35 that would seem to require firmware updating. On the other hand, Bell went through a well-publicised problem period with its use of the W35, which eventually required a firmware update, which if I remember correctly, is dated November 2011.
What is a mystery to me, however, is why both Rogers and Bell stopped selling the Ericsson W35. Anyone know what the scoop might be on that question? In the case of Rogers, they seem to provide only the seemingly problematic Netcomm. Bell offers other devices for the same function.
