Have client router pull from differnet dhcp

Mon Apr 29, 2019 9:57 pm

Do anybody know if it is possible to make a mikrotik client radio pull from 1 dhcp server off the ap and the have the client router pull from a different dhcp server off the same ap? We are doing this with our mimosa ap's and just love the subnet separation. Just lets us know these IP's are radios and these are client routers. To the best of my ability I have been trying to just duplicate the set up from Mimosa to Mikrotik and it just isn't working. If anybody could help out here I would appreciate it.

The rule of thumb is: one DHCP server per L2 network. But then ... you can always make a static DHCP lease for certain MAC address (you can't easily define different gateway etc., so it's hard to force a device into non-default subnet. There's possibility to add DHCP options though).

But then, if you don't have subnets separated on L2 (e.g. by using different VLANs), it's hard to talk about subnet separation ...
