Disable DHCP server Actiontec T3200M

Please add a way to disable the DHCP server in the Actiontec T3200M.  The T3200M is a great piece of hardware, with firmware that lacks the features of many other routers on the market today.  Thanks!

@Mango You do have the ability to turn on "Bridge Port 1" in the advanced settings and connect another router to LAN1 on the Actiontec. As this is an advance modem setting, it is not supported by our technical support team.

Very true, however that is not related to what I was trying to do, which was configure the T3200M as an access point.

 

Can this be re-opened please?

I'd like to add that I would like this option.

As I built my own router  and would just  add  the 5ghz to a dmz as to not mess up optik tv or use  info online about multicast / udp stuff you use for the tv.

I'd like to re-open this issue. There must be some way to simply turn off DHCP on the T3200M. I can turn off the wireless, which would mean that I probably don't need the DHCP settings either. Why is there no way to simply turn off DHCP.

Another vote for this.  This is such a simple requirement.  Those of us who know why we need this are comfortable with working out the details without Telus support, if you're concerned with increased support burden, stick it in the advanced options and let us break stuff Smiley Happy

I also like this feature to be enabled. I think other service providers have the option enabled in their firmware. Please re-open the issue and give us some hope.

A possible work around would be set the dhcp assignment range to be 1 address only and then use dhcp reservation to permanently assign the one address in the dhcp scope to a random ethernet address.

Definitely wishing to utilize this.  I do not have a spare router to use (my old Linksys DD-WRT is nowhere NEAR good enough to bridge this to it) but I want to just use this as the AP and let my personal Raspberry Pi do the DHCP and DNS for my local network.  I have it set for the DNS, but the DHCP it fails, since the Actiontec answers the DHCPRequest first.
