Disable DHCP on 881W?

Postby kevin.fairchild » Fri Jun 21, 2013 6:55 pm

Does anybody know of a way to disable DHCP on the 881W firewall? I'm trying to figure out a way to prevent any unnecessary network devices from using bandwidth during a broadcast.

There is no access to the 881W configuration. You can call Global Support, but I think a better plan is to unplug all access points and only allow the needed devices to connect via a wired connection. I would not recommend using wireless during a broadcast.

As for the wireless built into the 881 itself, remove the antennas.

Not locally. There are future plans to allow the turning off of WiFi. Until then, about all that can be done is to remove the antennas from the firewall.

There is much discussion at the Meetinghouse Internet forum on the topic, which you may find helpful.

Put all you AP's on a single power strip, flip switch and they are off.
