|As title - is it okay to have DHCP active on my existing Modem/Router (ADSL Broadband) and have it active on the DD-WRT Router too?
Have them linked ETHERNET->ETHERNET, each broadcasts different wireless SSID but PC if ADSL Modem/Router is switched on, PC is getting an IP address from the Modem/Router range even though it's connected to SSID of DD-WRT router. If I leave the Modem/Router switched off then PC gets and IP address in the range set-up in the DD-WRT router.
Ideally, I'd like to leave both active but this IP allocation behavior (and associated DNS behavior) isn't what I need.
Your thoughts would be appreciated.
