I would appreciate some guidance please on two topics.
I usually give my network devices fixed IPs not available in DHCP range of DHCP server but within the subnet they are working. This makes it easy for me to address them if I need to access control pages. Is this the correct approach?
The multimedia device must get it's address by DHCP as it cannot be given a fixed IP. Also Multicasting is used by UPnP for control and to make the device presence known to wifi control devices on the network. I have read various threads and wikis on this and would appreciate help please in ensuring wireless devices do not block the multicasting.
