How to set static IP addresses on my home network?
I have a laptop and a PC on a Windows 10 home network via the ARRIS TG862G Router supplied to me by xfinity.
My network is very unstable. One or the other of my computers will vanish from the network, sometimes for days or weeks at a time.
A BBS friend has suggested that I try setting up static IP addresses for the laptop and PC. When I look in the router settings under "Connected Devices > Devices" I see that I have a choice between "DHCP" or "Reserved IP." But I don't see an option for "Static IP." Is "Reserved IP" the same as "Static IP"?
