Ip adress static 169.254.2.xxx

Hello Cominity.
I want to unse a static IP adress 169.254.2.xxx in my WD Mycloud. But thats not possible. Why?
Is there any version of WD My Cloud in the professional line for eaxmple EX where i can use static IP 169.254.2.xxx?
It must be availible in ther german market

Why would you want to set a static IP in the range of 169.254.2.x? Generally that IP range (169.254.2.x) is what devices use when they cannot obtain an IP address from a network router/DHCP server.

If there isn’t a DHCP server on the local network the My Cloud should auto default to using an IP address in the 169.254.x.x range.

Hello,

its a very old network which has this IP range. I can´t replace this. I have to work with it. 169.254.2.5 - 14 ist DHCP the rest ist static. The problem ist that the Mycloud has changed the IP twice in the last 4 Month.

I can not understand why i can not use this IP range as static in the My Cloud

If there is a router on the network that is issuing the IP addresses, see if you can have the router assign a reserved/static IP address to the My Cloud.

Yes there is a Router, but i´ve not ther right to administrate this!
I have found that qnap NAS accept my IP range.
Thanks for supporting.
