Reasons to Assign Static IP On Computer While Configuring Range Expander

Since the completion of my previous tutorial, I received many queries asking the need of assigning static IP address on computer before configuring Range Expander. The reason is very simple, Range Expander does not have DHCP server to provide an IP address to the computer. So in order to login to the web based setup page of the device we need to assign a static IP address to the computer in the same IP address range. While configuring router we do not have this issue.
