Hi, The DHCP server in the TL-WPA9610 interferes with my main router's DHCP server. How do I disable the DHCP server in the TL-WPA9610? I expect it to simply pass through DHCP requests to my main router. --joe

there is no DHCP server in the TL-WPA9610.
you just need to pair it with another plug.

I believe there is a DHCP server in the TL-WPA9610: in the log, I've seen the message, "DHCP Server disabled."

I agree with Ada, the TL-WPA9610 has no DHCP server at all, you don't need to worry about it, the DHCP server is only enabled on your router

Well. It seems there is. The logging explicitly states:

[CODE]16 days 23:52:07 DHCPS INFO DHCP server started[/CODE]

Also, the wpa9610 (10.0.1.127) directly responds to my DHCP requests, before my routers (10.0.1.254). Since I'm passing options based on the mac address, some things break in my network.

[CODE]20:55:47.062478 IP 0.0.0.0.68 > 255.255.255.255.67: BOOTP/DHCP, Request from xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx, length 30020:55:47.064843 IP 10.0.1.127.67 > 255.255.255.255.68: BOOTP/DHCP, Reply, length 250[/CODE]

So, I'm find with the WPA9610 responding on it's own wifi network, but now it leaks DHCP request back to my powerline network. How can I avoid that?

Thanks for confirming. There is indeed a DHCP server--after all, it's just a unix/linux plug--and it'll cause issues with your router if it's enabled. The best I could figure out so far, empirically, is there's a race condition between your router and the wpa9610 if they're both rebooting at the same time (of it your router is down and the wpa9610 reboots). There may be a way on the router to tell if, "if there are two DHCP servers on the local net, tell the other one to go away."

My observation is that WPA9610 starts only DHCP when set as dynamic ip and no other DHCP lease it an ip. So either it to static ip or make sure it doesn't reboot while your DHCP (most cases it's your router) is offline/rebooting. I found this by the info from it's system log.
