    Sorry, I'm a little confused. If you are trying to set a static address on Android how does Windows respond?

    My reserve solution was so Android phone gets reserved IP on Lan but in reading your problem statement it appears you want the Wifi on so the Android device can access the Windows 10 Pro machine directly without going through Lan.

    Sorry for my confusion. How much of this have I got wrong.

    Thanks

    Not that either. An android app knows names of machines on the network it finds itself on (eg, android apps Fing, ES File Explorer &c). A web browser (eg Chrome) running in an android device doesn't. So a webapp running in Chrome in an android needs a webapp served from a network device like this win10 machine to have a known IP address.

    Okay. I think I'm getting there. So you have to set an address in the chrome webapp and that address has to be a known one on the Lan where it can find info.

    So you want to set a static ip address on the Windows 10 machine. A few posts back it was 192.168.1.42 on the wired connection.

    So you just have to set this address to be static and you don't need the wireless on Win 10 Pro machine at all. Just a known address that doesn't change.

    Am I any closer?

    You can set fixed IP on PC as long as it's same IP range subnet and gateway

    Check the firmware is current. The netgear device does have reservation. This is what you're looking for at the very bottom of the page.

    Right.

    And when I did this the past three days I got incomprehensible error messages like "multiple default gateways ... will not function properly ..." even though the default gateway entered is correct, and when the dialog is closed, Windows Troubleshooter brings up a dialog, says it is looking for a solution and of course finds none.

    That is interesting. What has Windows update got to do with this.

    Could I suggest that you manual invoke the Windows trouble shooter and lets see if we can't get that cleared. Really not sure of relationship but something is hooked.

    Windows key + S, search bar appears, type troubleshooting into search bar, troubleshooting appears at top. Click it, window opens, lower right side "Fix problems with Windows Update", click. Window opens, click on “advance”, click on Run as administrator, click “Next”. Should run clean. If not run again.

    It says "Try troubleshooting as administrator". I said OK.

    It whirrs awhile, then offers to undo and redo the last windows update. Grrr. Give me a few minutes to once again curse Bill Gates and all his works ... OK, I'm back. I've taken up Windows Troubleshooter offers I don't know maybe a hundred times over the last 32 years---doing my bit, among millions of others, to beta-test Windows 1, 2, 3, 95, 98, Pro, XP, 7, now 10. Not one Troubleshooter shot any trouble. Not a one. Often the Troubleshooter eats quite a lot of my time. That's the Windows equation: spend customer time to maintain M$oft product profit margin. (I know, M$oft ain't the only US corp that does this.) Indeed it's theoretically possible that this will be the Troubleshooter that breaks the losing streak. I'll bet you a truckload of Microsoft bug reports it's not, but black swans ie long tail probabilities are never provably zero, and I need a solution, so I must give it a try. I mean, I should've stopped before 32 years went by, and we don't yet have all the Linux functionality in place to let us jettison Windows for good. So I'll give it a try when I've updated the machine's backups and the machine isn't needed for a while. Thank you for your efforts so far.

    Interesting, ipconfig reports the default gateway is 192.168.1.1. That's the value I give Ethernet | Properties | internet Protocol version 4 Proparties. What do you suggest?
