Router Mode DHCP Server

Model: Deco M5
Hardware Version: V3
Firmware Version: 1.5.7 Build 20210819 Rel. 43499

Shouldn't this a feature to be considered because routers nowadays can be configured to disable/enable DHCP server. Like such if
 

(1) ISP Modem+Router+Wifi AP(Disabled AP + Enabled DHCP) -> (2) Main Deco(Router Mode)(Disabled DHCP) -> (3) Wifi connected Devices + 1 Wired Connected Device/Switch

 

This is will be an interesting feature because other features of Router Mode can be run while its not doing DHCP.

@MrKeiKun 

Hi, Nice to see you again.

You could see the reply on the other post about this feature request.

The Mesh router has its own points of focus, such as seamless roaming and whole-home Wi-Fi coverage.

DHCP on/off under wireless router is a basic feature for most routers and when it comes to the router, many users wish to keep it as they don't want to use Deco as a DHCP server but access point mode makes advanced feature unavailable. It is a reasonable demand but there hasn't been enough reasons/necessity to finally add it to Deco. Currently,  we can add this to our request spreadsheet that would be reported to the engineers regularly. I can't say if it will be updated but it's good to let them know what uses need.
