OP 6T uses static IP even though settings in phone are DHCP

    I found out that my OP 6T uses a static IP. I checked the setting for the relevant WiFi network and it's set to DHCP.

    My router does not give an IP to the phone manually. If it would, it would be an IP beginning with 192...The static IP the phone uses starts with 100...

    Any idea what's going wrong here?

    Hi, there is no option to set the phone for a static wifi ip address. Can you post a screen shot of the "Network details" for this wifi connection?

    I don't get it. You don't have a DHCP server on the phone. Your router is set to use or not DHCP and provide an IP to your phone.

    Please provide a more comprehensive description, screens you visit etc

    If you go to Network details you can open a window to change some options. In Advanced Options (don't know the exact english term because my phone is set to german) you can set if the IP is static or DHCP.

    Did the reset. Changed nothing.

    It's strange. The IP the phone shows in Network details is one my router provides by DHCP. But my router shows the different one with the info that two clients are connecting through this device...

    It seems like the phone connects twice to the router. Once with the "normal" IP which is not shown in the router and once with the IP I can't figure out where it comes from...

    OK. Don't know what happened but since today (for now) this behaviour stopped. The phone is shown with the correct DHCP-IP in the router... I did change nothing in the meantime.
