Disable DHCP on LinksysBEFSR41 router.
I have the router mentioned in the Title, and it has dhcp enabled. I cant open ports or put my server in the dmz without dis. dhcp. I disabled it, gave one of my computers a static ip and it wasnt able to even surf the net. Can someone give a step by step guide on setting up my router without dhcp and how to configure my clients?

You typically need three things on each client...things that you would normally get via DHCP.
1) IP address (use same subnet as your router LAN IP)
2) DNS server address (usually ISP's DNS server or sometimes the LAN IP of your router will work)
3) default gateway (the LAN IP of your router)

OC Guy, I do all of the above without disabling DHCP.
Just what do you want to do?
Oh and if you haven't flashed to the latest firmware do so..
Firmware Date : 3/11/2002
Firmware File Size : 364KB
Firmware Version : 1.42.6

Well, I went into mine, opened ports put my 1 computer into the DMZ and set up port forwarding.. all with out disableing the DHCP.
Thats why I ask.
I asked if you have flashed the firmware because the interface is much nicer now. Plus there are some upgrades you may need.
Try this link Here is some good info on the subject

In the book(yeah i actually read the manual lol), it said that to open ports, use dmz, etc., dhcp had to be disabled. (btw, eccp wont dump throught the router with the factory defaults.) Ill upgrade the firmware this weekend. Thanks guys, i got my machine connected without dhcp now.
