DHCP stands for Dynamic Host Control Protocol. The DIR-857 has a built-in DHCP server. The DHCP Server will automatically assign an IP address to the computers on the LAN/private network. Be sure to set your computers to be DHCP clients by setting their TCP/IP settings to “Obtain an IP Address Automatically.” When you turn your computers on, they will automatically load the proper TCP/IP settings provided by the DIR-857. The DHCP Server will automatically allocate an unused IP address from the IP address pool to the requesting computer. You must specify the starting and ending address of the IP address pool.

Enable DHCP Server:

Check this box to enable the DHCP server on your router. Uncheck to disable this function.

DHCP IP Address Range:

Enter the starting and ending IP addresses for the DHCP server’s IP assignment.

Note: If you statically (manually) assign IP addresses to your computers or devices, make sure the IP addresses are outside of this range or you may have an IP conflict.

DHCP Lease Time:

The length of time for the IP address lease. Enter the Lease time in minutes.

Always Broadcast:

Enable this feature to broadcast your networks DHCP server to LAN/WLAN clients.

NetBIOS Announcement:

NetBIOS allows LAN hosts to discover all other computers within the network, enable this feature to allow the DHCP Server to offer NetBIOS configuration settings.

Learn NetBIOS from WAN:

Enable this feature to allow WINS information to be learned from the WAN side, disable to allow manual configuration.

NetBIOS Scope:

This feature allows the configuration of a NetBIOS ‘domain’ name under which network hosts operates. This setting has no effect if the ‘Learn NetBIOS information from WAN’ is activated.”

NetBIOS Mode Type:

Select the different type of NetBIOS node: Broadcast only, Point-to-Point, Mixed-mode, and Hybrid.

Primary/Secondary WINS IP Address:

Enter your Primary (and Secondary) WINS IP address(es).

DHCP Reservation

If you want a computer or device to always have the same IP address assigned, you can create a DHCP reservation. The router will assign the IP address only to that computer or device.

Note: This IP address must be within the DHCP IP Address Range.

Enable:

Check this box to enable the reservation.

Computer Name:

Enter the computer name or select from the drop-down menu and click <<.

IP Address:

Enter the IP address you want to assign to the computer or device. This IP Address must be within the DHCP IP Address Range.

MAC Address:

Enter the MAC address of the computer or device.

Copy Your PC’s MAC Address:

If you want to assign an IP address to the computer you are currently on, click this button to populate the fields.

Save:

Click Save to save your entry. You must click Save Settings at the top to activate your reservations.

Number of Dynamic DHCP Clients:

In this section you can see what LAN devices are currently leasing IP addresses.

Revoke:

Click Revoke to cancel the lease for a specific LAN device and free an entry in the lease table. Do this only if the device no longer needs the leased IP address,because, for example, it has been removed from the network.

Note: The Revoke option will not disconnect a PC with a current network session from the network; you would need to use MAC Address Filter to do that. Revoke will only free up a DHCP Address for the very next requester. If the previous owner is still available, those two devices may both receive an IP Address Conflict error, or the second device may still not receive an IP Address; in that case, you may still need to extend the “DHCP IP Address Range” to address the issue, it is located in the DHCP Server section.

On this article the user can configure the internal network settings of the D-Link DIR-645 router and also able to configure the built-in DHCP server to assign IP addresses to computers on the network. The IP address that is configured here is the IP address that is used to access the Web-based management interface. If you change the IP address in this section, you may need to adjust your PC’s network settings to access the network again.

Router IP Address:

Enter the IP address of the router. The default IP address is 192.168.0.1. If you change the IP address, once you click Apply, you will need to enter the new IP address in your browser to get back into the configuration utility.

Default Subnet Mask:

Enter the Subnet Mask. The default subnet mask is 255.255.255.0.

Host Name:

Enter a Host Name to identify this device.

Local Domain Name:

Enter the local domain name used here. (Optional).

Enable DNS Relay:

Uncheck the box to transfer the DNS server information from your ISP to your computers. If checked, your computers will use the router for a DNS server.

D-Link DIR-645 DHCP Server Settings

DHCP stands for Dynamic Host Control Protocol. This device has a built-in DHCP server. The DHCP Server will automatically assign an IP address to the computers on the LAN/private network. Be sure to set your computers to be DHCP clients by setting their TCP/IP settings to “Obtain an IP Address Automatically.” When you turn your computers on, they will automatically load the proper TCP/IP settings provided by the router. The DHCP Server will automatically allocate an unused IP address from the IP address pool to the requesting computer. You must specify the starting and ending address of the IP address pool.

Enable DHCP Server:

Check this box to enable the DHCP server on your router. Uncheck to disable this function.

DHCP IP Address Range:

Enter the starting and ending IP addresses for the DHCP server’s IP assignment.

DHCP Lease Time:

The length of time for the IP address lease. Enter the Lease time in minutes.

Always Broadcast:

If all the computers on the LAN successfully obtain their IP addresses from the router’s DHCP server as expected, this option can remain disabled. However, if one of the computers on the LAN fails to obtain an IP address from the router’s
DHCP server, it may have an old DHCP client that incorrectly turns off the broadcast flag of DHCP packets. Enabling this option will cause the router to always broadcast its responses to all clients, thereby working around the problem, at the cost of increased broadcast traffic on the LAN.

NetBIOS announcement:

Check this box to allow the DHCP Server to offer NetBIOS configuration settings to the LAN hosts. NetBIOS allow LAN hosts to discover all other computers within the network, e.g. within Network Neighborhood.

Learn NetBIOS from WAN:

If NetBIOS announcement is switched on, it will cause WINS information to be learned from the WAN side, if available. Turn
this setting off to configure manually.

NetBIOS Scope:

This is an advanced setting and is normally left blank. This allows the configuration of a NetBIOS ‘domain’ name under which network hosts operate. This setting has no effect if the ‘Learn NetBIOS information from WAN’ is activated.

DIR-645-Network-Settings-3

NetBIOS node type:

This field indicates how network hosts are to perform NetBIOS name registration and discovery. H-Node, this indicates a Hybrid-State of operation. First WINS servers are tried, if any, followed by local network broadcast. This is generally the preferred mode if you have configured WINS servers. M-Node (default), this indicates a Mixed-Mode of operation. First Broadcast operation is performed to register hosts and discover other hosts, if broadcast operation fails, WINS servers are tried, if any. This mode favours broadcast operation which may be preferred if WINS servers are reachable by a slow network link and the majority of network services such as servers and printers are local to the LAN. P-Node, this indicates to use WINS servers ONLY. This setting is useful to force all NetBIOS operation to the configured WINS servers. You must have configured at least the primary WINS server IP to point to a working WINS server. B-Node, this indicates to use local network broadcast ONLY. This setting is useful where there are no WINS servers available, however, it is preferred you try M-Node operation first. This setting has no effect if the ‘Learn NetBIOS information from WAN’ is activated.

Primary WINS Server IP address:

Configure the IP address of the preferred WINS server. WINS Servers store information regarding network hosts, allowing
hosts to ‘register’ themselves as well as discover other available hosts, e.g. for use in Network Neighborhood. This setting has no effect if the ‘Learn NetBIOS information from WAN’ is activated.

Secondary WINS Server IP address:

Configure the IP address of the backup WINS server, if any. This setting has no effect if the ‘Learn NetBIOS information from WAN’ is activated.
