I log into my Xfinity router at 10.0.0.1 with web browser

I go to "Connected Devices > Devices"

In the "Online Decvices" list I find the device for which I want to assign a fixed IP address and click the Edit button

I change the configuration from "DHCP" to "Reserved IP". The page updates and properly shows the currently allocated IP address (10.0.0.5 - the address that was assigned by the DHCP server)

I click the "SAVE" button and get the error "IP address already exist"

 

Then I try to assign an IP that I know is not currently in use.

I click the "SAVE" button and get the error "MAC address already exist"

 

Then I try to create a bogus device with a random MAC address and the IP address 10.0.0.100 (both MAN and IP addresses are not currently in use)

I click the "SAVE" button and get the error "10.0.0.100 is inside the DHCP pool"

 

So it looks like there is no way to specifiy a static IP address. I was able to do that maybe a year ago. It looks like Xfinity updated the firmware and introduced a bug.

 

Anybody has come accross this? Any solutions?

 

Thanks,
