DHCP (Dynamic Host Config Protocol) is a protocol that will automatically assign an i/p address (TCP/IP) for network connectivity. The other type is Static I/P which would have a "static" i/p address assigned. If you go to Start/run, type in cmd and then ipconfig /all to see if you are connected via DHCP or Static I/P. Some apps need a static i/p, and this can be accomplished if you edit the hosts file on c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc but you would need expert help with it.

Does Brighthouse use a standard range for their DHCP and if yes do you know what it is? Trying to add an access point and don't want to step on the DHCP addresses.


DHCP Server Settings
1. Select DHCP from the Basic menu.
2. Select Yes to activate the DHCP Server.
3. Enter a number for the Starting Local Address field (Here you can set 192.168.0.3 and then give 192.168.0.2 for your AP .
4. Or you can Enter the number of CPE's in your network to a lesser number so that the DHCP pool size will be less and then you can use an IP outside that.
5. Hope this helps :)

I would like to know if a Linksys ezxs55w supports DHCP Thanks


All routers support DHCP and Static, if you need static, you will need port forwarding.

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 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 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: 205.152.37.254, 205.152.132.235, 205.152.132.23; There are many DNS servers out there. It's best to use your ISP's if possible.
  6. dhcp_router_save.jpg magnify-clip.png Don't forget to save! Scroll down and click 'Save Settings'
  7. Open up the network configurations for the computers on your network (Control Panel -> Network Connections -> Local Area Connection or Wireless Connection) and select 'Obtain IP address automatically'

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

Wireless router is connecting to a 169 ip address instead of a 192 ip address. I know it's an issue regarding the DHCP server but it's not making any since, since I've done ipconfig /release, renew and it...


When your computer is trying to request IP address from a DHCP server but it does not see the DHCP server it will give up and make up an IP address for itself. This IP will often look something like 169.x.x.x. This is a fake local address that Windows assigned to your PC when it couldn't reach a DHCP server.

Make sure that your computer is connected to a network with working DHCP server.

No network problems 3com phones can't get connected to dhcp


Assuming you are talking about remote phones, you need to program the NCP (call processor) IP into the phones manually or add option 187 to your DHCP scope. The phones are able to DHCP the just also need to know what the IP address of the phone system to connect to is. If the phones are on your local network then this is all unnecessary. They work at layer 2 locally and don't need to use an IP address or DHCP.

It probably isn't an overload the flashing lights are probably the new device doing a broadcast trying to find something that will tell it how to configure its network port. This process is called DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)

Normally your router would be automatically configured to be a DHCP server. If you have not needed to manually configure TCP/IP on your desktop computer then You have a DHCP server turned on somewhere.

Your next step should be to find out where your DHCP server is and if your new device has contacted it. Find the manual for your router and have a read about how to configure it expecialy the bits about DHCP.

Then open a command prompt. Sometimes called a dos prompt by typing cmd in the start run box and type ipconfig /all The Default gateway should tell you the IP number of your router. type that IP number into a web browser like this. http://192.168.0.1 (or what ever it is) you should see a configuration logon page for your router. The username and password will be in your users manual or just google it. From here go into the DHCP server screens and you should be able to see what IP numbers have been assigned on your network. Hopefully one of them will be your new device. Also you need to make sure that you only ever have one DHCP server on your network. PC's can also perform this function. If you have more than one running it will very dificlut to diagnose. If you see ip conflict errors this is probably the cause.

Netowrking is complex and there is lots you need to know all at once. Luckily home networks are relatively simple once you know what all the pieces are. This should give you a taste of what you need to learn about.

Good luck :)
