By default, the Wi-Fi AP (or router) acts as a DHCP server. The Wi-Fi AP assigns IP, DNS server, and default gateway addresses to all computers connected to the LAN. The assigned default gateway address is in the LAN address of the cable modem router.
You can use Audra device on your network as the DHCP server, or specify the network settings on all of your computers.
To disable the DHCP server feature in the Wi-Fi AP:
- Launch a web browser from a computer or mobile device that is connected to your router’s network.
- Enter 192.168.20.2
- Enter the router user name and password.
Consult the Wi-Fi AP manual for the admin user name & password
Enter the credentials and enter the web based configuration utility.
- Select ADVANCED > Setup > LAN Setup. (Popular manufacturers like TP-Link, Netgear, ASUS, etc., may refer to it as DHCP Server)
The LAN Setup page displays.
- Clear the Use Router as DHCP Server check box.
- Click the Apply button.
(Optional) If this service is disabled and no other DHCP server is on your network, set your computer IP addresses manually so that they can access the router.
