Re: What is BOOTP/DHCP?

BOOTP stands for Bootstrap Protocol. DHCP stands for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. Both are mechanisms to dynamically assign an IP address for a TCP/IP client by the server. In this case, the Prestige 310 Internet Access Sharing Router is a BOOTP/DHCP server. Win95 and WinNT clients use DHCP to request an internal IP address, while WFW and WinSock clients use BOOTP. TCP/IP clients may specify their own IP or utilize BOOTP/DHCP to request an IP address.

Log in on your router manager http://192.168.x.x and enable DHCP.DHCP provides an automated way to distribute and update IP addresses and other configuration information on a network. A DHCP server provides this information to a DHCP client through the exchange of a series of messages, known as the DHCP conversation or the DHCP transaction. If the DHCP server and DHCP clients are located on different sub-nets, a DHCP relay agent is used to facilitate the conversation.

  1. Connect to your router (by typing or into the URL bar) and log in. Check your user manual or documentation if you do not know the log-in credientials.
  2. 180px-dhcp_router_setup.jpg magnify-clip.png Router Setup tab Make sure you are in the Setup -> Basic Setup category.
  3. 180px-dhcp_router_disabled.jpg magnify-clip.png DHCP is Disabled Scroll down until you see 'DHCP Server' - if it is disabled, select 'Enable'
  4. 180px-dhcp_router_enabled.jpg magnify-clip.png Enable DHCP If you want, you can change the number that the DHCP IP assigning starts. This is optional, and is totally dependant on personal preference.In this picture, the maximum number of DHCP clients is 3. You may need to increase this number according to how many people will need a dynamic IP address on your network. Once the max is reached, no one else can get an address until one expires!
  5. Use the DNS servers provided to you by your ISP, or use the following DNS servers:,,; There are many DNS servers out there. It's best to use your ISP's if possible.

My router can not access dhcp.Why?

A DHCP Reservation is a permanent IP address assignment. It is a specific IP address within a DHCP scope that is permanently reserved for leased use to a specific DHCP client.
You can configure a DHCP reservation in your DHCP server when you need to reserve a permanent IP address assignment. You can use these reservations for DHCP-enabled devices like print and file servers or other application servers which always have the fixed IP address on a network.
To configure a DHCP reservation, follow the steps provided below:

Step 1:
Access the router's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here.
NOTE: To learn how to access the web-based setup page on a Mac computer, click here.
Step 2:
Click Setup > Basic Setup.

Step 3:
Make sure that the DHCP Server option is Enabled. Click the DHCP Reservation button if you want to assign a fixed local IP address to a MAC address.

Step 4:
When you click on DHCP Reservation, a new web browser window will pop-up. Click the Select checkbox to reserve a client's IP address. Click the Add Clients button afterwards.

kb17362-003_en.png Step 5:
If you want to manually assign an IP address, enter the client's host name in the Enter Client Name field. You can do this as well in the IP Address and MAC address fields.
Step 6:
Click the Add button.

Step 7:
A list of DHCP clients and their fixed local IP addresses will be displayed at the bottom of the screen. If you want to remove a client from this list, click the Remove button.


On this window, you can do any of the following:
• Click the kb17362-006_en.png button to save your changes.
• Click the kb17362-007_en.png button to cancel your changes.
• To view the most up-to-date information, click the kb17362-008_en.png button.
• To exit this screen, click the kb17362-009_en.png button

I just ordered a SR520W-ADSL-k9 Router. I am using SMB 2003 for DHCP now, I guess I should let the router handle DHCP, or Maby the router DHCP to my server and use a different subnet for the server DHCP. ...

if you want to SEE and use or share files it would be best to use the SAME subnet and DHCP, So one of those DHCP needs to be disabled. It would be best to use the Isp's modem built in DHCP but that is up to your on that.

let me know if you had additional questions.

please do leave positive feedback and ratings, Thanks

Won't dhcp connect with router

the Di-604 is the router. it will provide DHCP if the DHCP function is turned on. IT will not get its own IP from another dhcp router though. At least I have never gotten any to. I set the router IP address manually and then I set the DHCP range to be something that wont interfere with any other static IP addresses.
For instance. I set the router to instead of its default of Then I set the range of DHCP to to
You have to log into the router to do these changes. Your manual will tell you how to do this and what the default IP address is that you will need to type into your browser.

Dhcp setup on a Cisco 2851 router

Let's look at how to configure basic DHCP on an IOS-based router. For this example, we'll start off with the default configuration on a Cisco 2611 router running IOS 12.2. (The configuration should be the same—or very similar—on all IOS-based routers).
To begin, connect the router's Ethernet port to a switch, and connect the switch to a laptop, which will serve as the DHCP client.
To configure Cisco IOS DHCP, follow these steps, which include sample commands:
1.Configure an IP address on the router's Ethernet port, and bring up the interface. (On an existing router, you would have already done this.)
Router(config)# interface ethernet0/0
Router(config-if)#ip address
Router(config-if)# no shutdown2.Create a DHCP IP address pool for the IP addresses you want to use.
Router(config)# ip dhcp pool mypool3.Specify the network and subnet for the addresses you want to use from the pool.
Router(dhcp-config)# network /8 4.Specify the DNS domain name for the clients.
Router(dhcp-config)#domain-name mydomain.com5.Specify the primary and secondary DNS servers.
Router(dhcp-config)#dns-server the default router (i.e., default gateway).
Router(dhcp-config)#default-router the lease duration for the addresses you're using from the pool.
Router(dhcp-config)#lease 78.Exit Pool Configuration Mode.

I hope this is helpfull for you.

Xbox 360

Either the network connection between the 360 and router is not working correctly, or your router is not configured properly for DHCP.

DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) is a protocol that automatically assigns a network address (and some other settings) to your computer....or Xbox in this case. It works like this....when your Xbox connects to the network, it sends out a broadcast packet on the network that looks for a DHCP server. If a DHCP server is present, it responds. Next the Xbox requests its network address and other settings from the DHCP server. Your WGR614 router has a DHCP server function built in, but it may not be enabled. Try reconfiguring the router using the Netgear "Smart Wizard" installation CD and be sure to enable the DHCP capability, if asked.

BEFSR81 Server and BOOTP Packet Vulnerability

A flaw in the built-in DHCP server causes the routers to send BOOTP reply packets that contain sensitive information about traffic running through the devices as well as other random information about the router's configuration. New firmware to fix this issue is now available! See information on the Linksys site for upgrading to the new firmware.
