Use the Router as a DHCP Server
By default, the router functions as a DHCP server, allowing it to assign IP, DNS server, and
default gateway addresses to all computers connected to the router’s LAN. The assigned
default gateway address is the LAN address of the router. The router assigns IP addresses to
the attached computers from a pool of addresses specified in this screen. Each pool address
is tested before it is assigned to avoid duplicate addresses on the LAN. For most
applications, the default DHCP and TCP/IP settings of the router are satisfactory.
You can specify the pool of IP addresses for assignment by setting the starting IP address
and ending IP address. These addresses must be part of the same IP address subnet as the
router’s LAN IP address. Using the default addressing scheme, define a range between
192.168.1.2 and 192.168.1.254, although you might want to save part of the range for
devices with fixed addresses.
The router delivers the following parameters to any LAN device that requests DHCP:
•An IP address from the range that you defined
•Gateway IP address (the router’s LAN IP address)
•DNS server address
You can use another device on your network as the DHCP server or you can manually
configure the network settings of all of your computers and devices.
To disable the DHCP server feature:
1. Log in to the router.
