Is there a way to disable DHCP on this router?
I looked through the menus and didn’t see anything.
I installed TORONTO-N v1.20 and didn’t see anything.
If not, is there a way to flash it with some other DD-WRT image that does support that feature?
There’s no way to disable DHCP on this router, since it’s required for the parental control functions. What’s your network configuration and what are you trying to achieve?
I now have a Frontier modem and a Cisco/Linksys EA4500 router, so would just like to set up the pcWRT as a wired repeater.
I don’t need the Parental Control anymore and I would continue to use the EA4500’s DHCP.
Since I didn’t see any settings, I suspected that I was not able to disable it.
However, if I can flash different firmware on it, I know there are some versions that allows the repeater setup.
Understood. The router works with OpenWrt, but there’s no known DD-WRT firmware that works. Are you comfortable with command line interface?
I’m in IT, so am sure I can figure out whatever suggestions you have. Thanks!
Here’s what you can do:
When you connect the pcWRT to the Linksys, connect a LAN port on the pcWRT to a LAN port on the Linksys. Devices connecting to the pcWRT via DHCP will then get IP addresses from the Linksys.
I finally had a chance to try this to disable the DHCP and set up the router as a repeater.
It appears to be working great now!
I appreciate your help in getting this set up.
