If you want to have a basic idea of what a DHCP server is, you are in the right place. The DHCP is nothing but a network server that helps in assigning an IP address, default gateways, and other such parameters to the network devices. When DHCP is enabled in a router, each time a device is connected to the router’s network, the router assigns a dynamic IP address to the device. Usually, all the public wireless networks assign the IP addresses to the connecting devices dynamically. Let's see how to Change Dhcp Settings On Netgear Router.
