Hi all. Is it possible somehow to disable DHCPv4 on the Ignite Hub (CGM4140COM)? I looked through the settings and I only found the option to disable DHCPv6, but not the DHCP server for IPv4. I have my own device hooked up that acts as a DHCP server and would like to use that instead. Thanks.
It's a DHCP server type thing, more specifically a Raspberry Pi 🙂 back when I was with Bell I was running it as my own DHCP server so that I can use my own filtering rules as well as DNS servers. Right now I have manually assigned IPv4 settings to most of my devices, but that's pretty tedious and not every device supports that.
I might have an old Wifi router that I could hook up which is able to have its DHCPv4 disabled, but that seems rather counter intuitive.
Is there any way to telnet/ssh into the Ignite hub to get access to that functionality?
Thanks for providing the community with this additional information!
Unfortunately, we couldn't find a way to disable the DHCP server for IPv4 via the Ignite WiFi Hub as you were hoping. You may be able to connect your own router to our modem while it is in bridge mode and connect your own server that way, but you'd have to test that out to see if it works.
I'll tag in some of our RE's @Gdkitty, @-G-, @Datalink, to see if they have any ideas! If any one else in the community has tested out a similar scenario and were successful, we'd love to hear from you too!! 😀
I have the Ignite 500u with the XB6 modem. How can I disable IP6 and the DHCP on the router? I would like to add my own hardware to the router and need to have these features disabled. Thank you.
I am surprised to get this confirmed. The DHCP server function can't be disabled!
And the reason I want to disable that is, I cannot set specific DNS servers for DHCP clients.
For these above 2 reasons, maybe I have to set it to bridge mode.
However, is it possible to keep the Wifi function? Make it work as an AP?
