Review from Cameron Harris
Functionality that should be standard in Android... Needed to see if my new Wireless Access Point was forwarding DHCP server properly. Just open the app and the information is there... Brilliant.
Samsung Galaxy S5, Android 6.0.1, T-Mobile 4G/LTE, -78dBm signal, MObile Network Connected, IPv4 & IPv6, WiFi strong, CH 10 N,My IP, Subnet, Gateway, servers, all good to that point Lease duration is 60 hours, so what. BUT mac addr is NOT 02:00:00:00:00:00, it's FC:C2:DE:A7:9E:51 On to cellular, Host Name is exactly same as Host Address, Huh? Connection is MObile, does not show my IP. At least Vz/Android Staus can do that right. Ok, it's not terrible, but if there is a MENU, where is it? Click menu it says on your banner. Where? I tried the star, nothing. The text of the labels, nada! The detail after the label, Nope!! The bar at the top, Nossiree! The name of the app in the banner bar, Nodachance. So, where's the BEEF? (Menu?)
ipconfig is simple and elegant. I installed it specifically to see when my DHCP lease expired or will expire. While it tells me a "lease duration", it doesn't give me any way to tell if that interval is in the past or extends into the future. It also displays the suspicious MAC 02:00:00:00:00:00. That's not the device's MAC. Is it meant to be the DHCP server MAC?
It helps! Had an issue where my ps3 glitched itself out of the network. Good thing my nexus 4 was still connected. Had to connect the ps3 manually and this app certainly helps in identifying the IP address, DNS server etc.
Allows default gateway config I have a wireless router (Belkin) attached to a ADSL modem (Edimax 7211a). The way these two are configured, requires default gateway config for any device that wants to connect to internet. The default wifi settings in android did not let me do that. The application solved the exact problem! :)
Nearly works! Basic data is OK but DHCP lease time is wrong. Said it was 120 hours instead of 24. Also would be useful to know how much time is left before the lease runs out.
Pretty much useless Simply redirects me to the android settings where I can't change any of the things that this app claims to be able to configure.
