Use a DHCP client identifier
Authored by: snarke on Oct 07, '04 07:57:31AM

My, that's very cool. I've had two IP addresses for my laptop, because I couldn't figure out how to give both the Ethernet and Airport the same one. It hasn't really been a big deal, since the connection would switch back and forth even though the IP was different, even for a chat client (amazing!), but it did make my DNS entries annoying.

At first, setting the Client ID didn't seem to work. As it turns out, that's because my D-Link router would assign a dynamic IP based on the full Client ID (the word changed to hex), but when I tried to associate it with a fixed, reserved IP, it would only remember the first six characters. Changing the ID to a six character word means it now assigns the same IP address to either interface, despite the different MAC addresses. Nifty!
