You can assign static IP addresses to devices in your F-Secure SENSE Router network; for example, printers and game consoles. To set this up, you need to have full control over the respective device's network management settings. For example, for a printer, you need admin access to the printer's web interface, and for a game console, access to the console settings.

To set this up in F-Secure SENSE Router:

  1. Finish the SENSE Router setup.
  2. In the SENSE Router app main view, select More > Settings > Network > Routing Mode. The dialog contains two fields:
    • DHCP Beginning:
    • DHCP Ending:
  3. Tap Edit in the top right corner.
  4. Change the DHCP range as shown below or as needed:
    • DHCP Beginning:
    • DHCP Ending :

    This allows approx. 54 free static IP addresses.

  5. Assign IP addresses from to your devices using the device management web interface or application.

    Note: Remember that each static IP address may only be assigned to one device.

    If you need more than 54 static IP addresses, you may adjust the DHCP Ending (see step 4).

If your static IP setup requires a DNS address, then:
  • Open up the SENSE Router app, and under Settings > Network, use the SENSE gateway address ( as your DNS.
  • Alternatively, you can use the DNS address from your Internet Service Provider (ISP). Please check your upstream router for the DNS address.
