Re: How to setup Wireless for Netgear WNDR4000 without DHCP

not clear to entire setup but you can not setup just wireless portion of router without DHCP and leave wired device to be DHCP.

if you are looking to have static IP then choice are follow


optons 1

setup static IP on desire device with OUTSIDE of DHCP range ( you will need to change the range in the router interface)

or

options 2

use "Address reservation" under LAN setup and specify desire IP with correct mac address of device that you want router to push it's IP . With, you need to power cycle (on/off) router and device to renew the ip correctly

Thanks for the reply Jim. I am but new at this...We are running through comcast and when DHCP is on, it crashes my network. Obviously, I have a conflict...Not sure how to fix it.

not sure but DHCP on LAN should not cause an issues unless the LAN subnet is same as WAN side (comcast modem default device IP is on same subnet)

suggestion is to change the LAN subnet on router to 192.168.5.x and see

sometime when service interrupt , comcast will put private IP on WAN side and that could cause the issues.

there is numerous issues posted on cable modem issues like this issues. so you may also want read as well

Everybody keeps telling me to make it an access point...I thought it was on DHCP, am I correct?

you do not need make 4000 as an access point.. it is an option but if you have cable modem and not modem/gateway the should use 4000 as router

I am using it in my place of business for our sales team and I am running Comcast through a Cisco ASA firewall. Apparently, there is an IP conflict and I am trying to find the best way to resolve it.

been a already a existing firewall then 4500 should be setup as above and do not use AP mode that is in the 4500's web interfaces.
