Can the GS305E switch be used as a DHCP server?

Can the GS305E switch be used as a DHCP server?

I found in the documentation it says that the switch can be used as a DHCP relay but I couldn't find anywhere if it can be used as a DHCP server. I want to connect it straight to the internet without a router or modem.

Model: GS305E|5 Port Gigabit Ethernet Smart Managed Plus Switch

@Retired_Member,

 

Welcome to the community! 🙂 

 

The GS305E does not have a DHCP server function.  If you need a switch that has a DHCP Server function, I suggest you any of the M4300 switch models. 

 

To know more about the M4300 switch models and their specifications, kindly check the data sheet here
