    Want to force Slingbox Pro (1.4.20) to use DHCP

    Bugsy1957

      Hi - I have searched but can not find the answer to this.

       

      I am about to change the network layout at home to a different subnet and want to force the SlingBox pro to use DHCP. At the moment it appears to be using a static IP address and I had hope that doing a hardware reset would force it back to DHCP.

       

      Although I have a DHCP reservation set up on the current router at present it does not appear to be picking up that reservation.I have checked the device MAC address by pinging it from a laptop and checking the ARP table The Setup assistant shows the SBPRO has a valid IP address but I don't understand where it got this from after a factory reset. Within the setup wizard there is no option to enabled DHCP!
