BT Home Hub 5, Raspberry Pi

Set up a static internal IP address on Bt Home Hub 5

This brief post explains how to set a device connected to you home network to have a static internal IP address on a BT Home Hub 5 router. (If you are looking for information on how to set up an external IP address see this post).

For this post I’m going to give my Raspberry Pi (with OSMC installed) a static internal IP address.

Connect your Raspberry Pi to your home network.

  1. Open your browser and enter in the address bar to open the Hone Hub admin page.
  2. Click Advanced Settings and enter your Admin user password
  3. Click on Continue to Advanced Settings
  4. Click on Home Network
  5. Locate the Pi on the diagram (mine is called pi-osmc) and click on its link
  6. Under the Addressing header locate IP Address and note the current address.
  7. Locate Always use this IP address and click on Yes
  8. Click Apply. You can now close your browser.
