Improve DHCP Implementation on Router

Submitted by OrangeReaper 03-11-2018 | 12 Comments

Status: Investigating
  1. New ideas

  2. Investigating

  3. Accepted

  4. Delivered

Step 2 of 4

The provided WiFi Router implements a very restricted DHCP service as follows:

 

1. It cannot be disabled (this means that I cannot use another device on my home network as a DHCP server)

 

2. It does not allow addresses to be reserved for networked devices based on their MAC Address.

 

3. As a result of points #1 and #2 the Port Forwarding provided is strictly limited to devices that are always switched on or are manually configured to have a static address which is outside of the DHCP range.

 

My suggestion is to update routers to provide a 'more complete' DHCP service that addresses the above limitations.

 

Thank you
