There are three submenus under the DHCP menu : DHCP Settings, DHCP Clients List and Address Reservation.
Click any of them, and you will be able to configure the corresponding function.
Choose menu “DHCP→DHCP Settings”, and then you can configure the DHCP Server on the page .
The Router is set up by default as a DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server, which provides the TCP/IP configuration for all the PC(s) that are connected to the Router on the LAN.
DHCP Server - Enable or Disable the DHCP server. If you disable the Server, you must have another DHCP server within your network or else you must configure the computer manually.
Start IP Address – Specify an IP address for the DHCP Server to start with when assigning IP addresses.
192.168.1.100 is the default start address.
End IP Address – Specify an IP address for the DHCP Server to end with when assigning IP addresses.
192.168.1.199 is the default end address.
Address Lease Time – The Address Lease Time is the amount of time a network user will be allowed connection to the Router with their current dynamic IP Address. Enter the amount of time in minutes and the user will be “leased” this dynamic IP Address.
After the time is up, the user will be automatically assigned a new dynamic IP address.
The range of the time is 1 ~ 2880 minutes. The default value is 120 minutes.
Default Gateway – (Optional.) Suggest to input the IP address of the LAN port of the Router, default value is 192.168.1.1

Primary DNS – (Optional.) Input the DNS IP address provided by your ISP. Or consult your ISP.

To use the DHCP server function of the Router, you must configure all computers on the LAN as “Obtain an IP Address automatically” mode.
