I'm using a Cisco WRT600N (1.01.36 build 4) and cannot figure out how to keep the DHCP server disabled. There's another DHCP server on my network, and the WRT600n messes things up all the time. Disabling the feature on the WRT600n, then rebooting keeps it off for at most a day or so, but then it re-enables itself while the GUI shows it as disabled.
This is unexpected behavior and should not happen with a mature firmware release.
Steps taken: Removed from box, upgraded to latest firmware, deactivated DHCP, configured other options as necessary.
I can't find older firmware on the Cisco website. Thanks for the suggestions, but I think this issue needs engineering assistance, which Cisco may or may not provide. Product does not perform as designed.
By default, the DHCP is always on. I am not sure how to bypass that since it's always configured to be on from the get-go. My only option is to disable DHCP after a factory reset, which causes the problems I've described.
Thanks for the suggestions. I don't really want to use a 3rd-party OS, but appreciate the recommendation.
