Manually assigned DHCP addresses work when the connection is via wireless, but doesn't appear to work when connected via ethernet. Running Merlin 386.2.4

Do you mean for the same device like a laptop that has both wireless and Ethernet adapters? That would make sense since different adapters have different MAC addresses, and DHCP reservations are based on MACs.

I have a similar setup when the same IP is manually assigned to both wired and wireless. Have to keep in mind not to connect via both simultaneously.
