    Note that Advanced IP Scanner itself is not directly supported by HomeSeer nor by Mark Sandler. It's simply provided here as a resource for those who do not have direct access to their router DHCP tables.

    Once you have found the IP address, go to your home router, and find the DHCP, or ip/mac binding service, and set a fixed IP for the Insteon hub. This way, the IP wont change when the insteon hub is rebooted.
