I have a Netgear Nighthawk AC1900 Router that is setup and working correctly with a network that has two Wifi cameras and a Linux PC acting as a server.

Static IP addresses have been assigned to both WiFi cameras and the Linux PC in the Netgear Router:

The router is using a Cat5 ethernet cable for two way communication for the Linux PC that is acting as a server:

Now I am trying to replace the Netgear Nighthawk router with a battery powered TP-LINK Router:

I have matched the Static IP address assignment of the Linux PC and two Wifi cameras in Netgear Nighthawk Router to the TP-LINK router settings:

The network setup is not working though, I do not know what other settings I might need to match from the Netgear Nighthawk router to the TC-LINK router.

I also do not know if the one ethernet port on the TC-LINK router will allow two way direction communication of the Cat5 cable hooked up between the Linux PC and the TC-Link wireless router so that my Linux PC can continue to act as a server on this network like it works on the Netgear Night router.

Assuming that when you say "The network setup is not working though" you mean that those hosts are no longer being provided a reserved IP address via DHCP...

According to various sources, the ARP Binding feature of TP-Link routers isn't for assigning DHCP reservations. You'd need to either find the DHCP reservation feature on the TP-Link and add the appropriate entries in there, or statically configure the IP addresses on the devices themselves.

  • Perfect the fact that I was using ARP instead of DHCP bindings was the issue, thanks much! – Brian Jun 11 '16 at 1:58
