TD-W8901G 54M Wireless ADSL2+ Modem Router User Guide The Router will work as a DHCP Server; it becomes the default gateway for DHCP client connected to it. DHCP stands for Dynamic Host Control Protocol. The DHCP Server gives out IP addresses when a device is booting up and request an IP address to be logged on to the network. That device must be set as a DHCP client to obtain the IP address automatically. By default, the DHCP Server is enabled. The DHCP address pool contains the range of the IP address that will automatically be assigned to the clients on the network.
Figure 4-12 • Starting IP Address: Enter the starting IP address for the DHCP server's IP assignment. Because the default IP address for the Router is 192.168.1.1, the default Start IP Address is 192.168.1.2, and the Start IP Address must be 192.168.1.2 or greater, but smaller than 192.168.1.254. • • IP Pool Count: The max user pool size. Lease Time: The length of time for the IP lease. After the dynamic IP address has expired, the user will be automatically assigned a new dynamic IP address. The default is 259200 seconds.
