In my homelab I am using pfsense’s DHCP service. I have used the “DHCP static mappings” for a number of items. My main workstation is my Windows laptop which can connect to the LAN by both wired and wireless connections.
I would like to be able to get the SAME IP address for the laptop whichever way it is connected (eg by either wired or wireless).
I certainly know how not to do this!! - I set up a pair of DHCP Static mappings for the wired and the wireless MAC addresses which pointed to the same IP Address. And it did not like that at all - it left the workstation not connecting properly. I had quite a job getting back into the pfsense console so I could put things back how they were (with the two Static mappings pointing to different IP Addresses).
Any way to get a consistent IP address?
