Description

Allows you to enable or disable the DHCP server

The starting address used by the built-inDHCP server to distribute Private LAN IP addresses. In the example shown, addresses between 2 and 9 can be used for devices on your Private LAN that require fixed IP addresses such as printers or a device assigned as a DMZ host

The LAN IP address ending in 1 is reserved for the internal gateway server. The LAN IP address ending in 255 is also reserved and should not be used for CPE devices

Enter the maximum number of devices allowed to connect to the Private LAN.

The maximum number of devices is 255. This is the combined total of addresses reserved for static IP addresses, for example, the sum of the IP addresses between 1 and the value entered in the Starting Local Address field and the value entered in the Number of CPEs field.

Note: The sum of the value entered in the Starting Local Address field and the value entered in the Number of CPEs field mustalways be 255 or less.

Reserving IP Addresses

Use the Setup Basic Settings – Fixed CPE IP Assignment page to reserve IP addresses to be issued by the DHCP server in the gateway to specific devices on the LAN. This feature allows you to assign a fixed IP address to any device in your network and eliminates the need to set static IP addresses in your PC or other network device.

Reserving IP addresses is useful in making sure that a particular PC or other network device (for example, a printer) is always issued the same IP address. Another example: when using DMZ Host, the IP address for the DMZ Host will always be issued to the same PC or device.

If you are not familiar with the Fixed CPE IP Assignment procedures detailed in this section, contact your cable service provider before you attempt to change any of the gateway cable modem default Fixed CPE IP Assignment settings.

Click Fixed CPE IP Assignment in the Basic Settings section of the Setup page to access the Setup Basic Settings – Fixed CPE IP Assignment page.
