Hello from Vienna,
since beginning I’m using; http://homeassistant.local:8123 to get access to HA. As my network system, Openmediavault is using a static IP and since then no access issue, I want the same for HA.
My router has a DHCP range from 100 to 199, So for HA I will use (IPv4):
static IP: 192.168.0.250 → above DHCP range
Gateway: 192.168.0.254 → default from my router
DNS: 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124 → default from HA
So I have two questions:
- do I have to add /24 for netmask?
- can I use the DNS default from HA?
Thx for your help
Here’s a copy of my Network config within Home Assistant in case that helps:
I have the netmask included as you can see.
The DNS servers are not associated with HA, you can use whatever you want e.g. your local ISP, Google, Adguard/Pihole, or Cloudflare as I use.
Hope that helps.
Thany you very much for your detailed answer. Unfortunately it did not work. I have changed according to my post:
static IP: 192.168.0.250
pushed the save button and nothing happened. The save animation did not stop. After some minutes I closed HA and did restart. Now I could see at network the new settings, but have to open HA in the old way…http://homeassistant.local:8123/
Now net configuration new and saved.
But HA can be reached still under: http://homeassistant.local:8123/ only.Angy IP scan shows me that HA is located at 192.168.0.250…
