Specify a TFTP server in DHCP settings (RBR50)


Specify a TFTP server in DHCP settings (RBR50)

Hi there, I was wondering if there is a way to specify a TFTP server in the DHCP settings on an Orbi RBR50? I cannot seem to find an option. I know at times there are ways to do some limited config over telnet, etc, so I thought I would check in. Thank you in advance.

Re: Specify a TFTP server in DHCP settings (RBR50)

I am not aware of Orbi DHCP supporting any options.  There is a provision on the WAN setup page to have the Orbi use options 60 and 61 to identify itself to the ISP network, but that's not what you want to do.


The only way to accomplish what you want is to use a different DHCP server on the network that is capable of incorporating options 66/67 or 150.  I have found internet articles talking about using Pi-hole's DHCP this way.  I have not looked at pfSense. (Have Pi-hole. do not have pfSense)


Good Luck
