Activity - Own or Lease?
This chapter presents the concept of using the DHCP process in a small- to medium-sized business network. This modeling activity describes how very basic wireless ISR devices work using the DHCP process.
Visit http://ui.linksys.com/WRT54GL/4.30.0/Setup.htm which is a web-based simulator that helps you learn to configure DHCP using a Linksys wireless 54GL router. To the right of the simulator (in the blue description column), you can click More to read information about configuring DHCP settings on this particular integrated services router (ISR) simulator.
Practice configuring the ISR’s:
- Local IP address with subnet mask
- DHCP (enable and disable)
- Starting IP address
- Maximum number of users to receive an IP DHCP address
- Lease time
- Time zone (use yours or a favorite as an alternative)
When you have completed configuring the settings as listed for this assignment, take a screen shot of your settings by using the PrtScrn key command. Copy and place your screen shot into a word processing document. Save it and be prepared to discuss your configuration choices with the class.
