DHCP and DNS

New Poster

DHCP and DNS

Feature Request: Please let us change DNS servers.

 

Question: Do all the "xfi" features (bedtime, pausing, etc) require IPs served from the DHCP server on the gateway? In other words can I configure the DHCP server to serve out 1 IP address only, and run a different DHCP server on my network for IP address, and still get the xfi features for those devices?

 

(See what you are making me do in order to use different DNS servers? - see Feature Request above

Re: DHCP and DNS

 

emonster, thanks for posting. In short, the answer is no. XFi works best when the DHCP serves one address only from the modem. Thanks for the feedback though. I'll pass this request to the XFi team.
