In versions 11, 14, 15 and 16 on both an RT-N12 and RT-N16, the static IP address either never is assigned by the router or does so only after many hours (11 or 12 hours) when it should be immediate. I can see the static IP address pop up on the device list for a couple seconds without the hostname, and then it drops off. This happens repeatedly for hours. The IP address does not make it into the log file (DHCP ack, connect, etc).
With either stock factory firmware or DD-WRT, when I set a static IP address for my Linksys PAP2 on the RT-N12 or RT-N16, the router assigns it within seconds and I can see it both on the router's device list in real time and in log files. With K2.4 Tomato on a WRT54GL, it also works fine and a static IP address is assigned immediately to my Linksys PAP2.
All other Tomato functions work extremely well that I am using and I am super appreciative of this awesome firmware. Is there more testing I could do or do you have any ideas on what is causing the problem with static IP addresses?
