Hi, I have recieved my Vodafone Router and my cutover day is today and I am live with Vodafone Broadband. However, I have a number of Access Points and another router on my network, my other router provides DHCP (with some static IP addresses), I was hoping I could do the same as I did with my EE router, i.e. disable WiFi and disable the DHCP service and connect to up to my exiting router via Ethernet (so the vodafone router is just providing access to the Internet). I can disable WiFi but i cannot find an option to disable DHCP on the Vodafone HHG2500. Does anyone know if this is possible?

 

Thanks

Turning off the DHCP on the Vodafone router is easy.  Whether you can get another router to issue IP addresses and advise clients that the Vodafone router IP address is the default gateway and DNS server might be more difficult.

Many thanks. I missed the mode change at the top right. All sorted now. Thanks again.
