    It seems that when I set the OG with a static ip address, the time in the log becomes invalid. I think I first noticed this in 1.0.9 and it’s still there in 1.1.0

    It works fine using DHCP.

    Just an FYI.

    Thanks, a

    OK, I will check. I don’t think it should have anything to do with static ip vs. DHCP — the only reason for time being invalid would be NTP time sync fails.

    By the way, even with DHCP, you can still set a fixed IP, by going to your router’s configuration page, and set a DHCP reservation for the device (basically binding a fixed IP to its MAC address). This is effectively static IP, but managed using the router.

    Thanks, Ray. That is, in fact, how I created the new static ip. I only noticed it because in trying to reset the device, the default is DHCP and suddenly the time was right in the log. I then set a static ip address and the time stamps were all wrong. Initially I did not use DHCP because I use a different sub-net to isolate all my IOT devices, JIFC. I’d like to go back to that policy, so please let me know if you find the problem. Again, thanks.

    I noticed the same thing after setting a static IP. Not a big deal for me since I’m using Home Assistant and that’s my source of truth for logging, but I still decided to manage my IP reservation through the router to remedy this.

    I found the same issue.

    On top of this, it also seems if the date/time is wrong, blynk doesn’t see the board online. As soon as you use DHCP and date/time is correct, blynk says the board is online.
