Slowly working my way through configuring my network the way I want, but I am stuck on one thing...
I have ATT Uverse (we have FTTP/FTTH/Fiber whichever you're used to hearing it as ) -- The modem/gateway is the NVG589, and unfortunately, unlike with the 510, you *cannot* turn off the DHCP server on this device.
Right now, I have it configured to do passthrough, I have the dhcp pool as small as I can set it to be (running a /30, it wont let me do a /31 or I would have). Now unfortunately, that means that it does at least have the ability to issue *1* dynamic address...
I already have the mikrotik acquiring my public ip address, but if I connect a device to the mikrotik, it has the ability to get the dhcp address from the NVG (dual dhcp on a single network without isolation is BAD).
Curious if anyone knows a way I can block this dhcp pool; I literally have 0 use for it, other than to manually set an address and connect to it.
Currently, I have the NVG setup as:
.253 is set as a "static lease", but if that device is not connected, or similar, the NVG makes its own rules on what to do (downright stupid).
The CRS is setup as:
Looking for any suggestions on how to block this, as the device does not have an actual bridge mode, only passthrough.
