Bind IP to MAC feature can bind an IP address to the specific MAC address, avoid IP address changing when reconnects. Router will reserve the IP address which is listed on the IP Bind list, and will assign such IP address to the device which owns the MAC address connect to the network. This feature ensures the device whose MAC address is bounded with the certain IP address on the router will get the same IP address every time it connects. With Bind IP to MAC feature, network administrator can regulate the IP addresses of the LAN clients and can maintain the network easier.
(This article applies to Vigor3900, Vigor2960 and Vigor300B, for other models, please refer to the article here.)

Due to the configuration difference on each Vigor router, the exported bind list will not content the profile name, you will find the profile name become default name as "1_192_168_1_10" after you restored the bind list back to Vigor3900, Vigor2960 and Vigor300B.
