Cisco 806 Eth-to-Eth Router as DHCP Client

Hello,

I need to deplay a NAT device to a home office so that the user will be able to connect multiple computers to a cable broadband circuit that normaly configures only one machine for Net access via DHCP. I am considering the 806 router. Can it act as a DHCP client and be the default gateway for machines on its subnet?

Thanks,

Gene

Gene,

Yes, the Cisco806 can act as a DHCP client and provide NAT/PAT on the dynamic address. I currently do this at home with a Cisco1605.

One note of caution: Beware of DHCP on 12.1.x and 12.1.xT versions. I had a number of issues that were all fixed with the 12.2 code.

Jason,

Thanks for the info. We're going with the 806.
