Hi, I have a 7404VGO-M, I notice the DHCP client lease times are provided only in seconds, why does this router not allow a lease time in Day's like other routers?

Secondly, for such an expensive router, why is it not possible to fix an IP to a MAC address like other routers at half the price? I mean this thing cost me over $300 and i recently bought a Dynalink RTA1025W for $115 which has far more flexibility and functionality than this Billion (i don't use VOIP).

For the moment i have DHCP Disabled because its PITA to be honest when forwarded ports are added to the equation.

all sorts of other lease and cache times on the internet are defined in seconds, so Billion have actually done the right thing by specifying the time in seconds.

regarding your second question you can create a fixed host. go into DHCP settings, click Next, and then down the bottom there's a link for "Fixed Host". Stick the MAC address in and tell it what IP you want it to have.
