Storm season is back, bringing with it the potential for significant weather events. If you have clients in areas prone to infrastructure disruption, visit the Disaster Recovery Resources guide for preparedness information. Datto recommends performing proactive disaster recovery testing to mitigate potential downtime. See our articles about the importance of disaster recovery testing and Preparing For A Cloud Virtualization Test: Policies, Procedures, And Partner Responsibilities to learn more.

How does DHCP and IP assignment work?

Follow

Each node provides built-in DHCP routing by default, dynamically assigning an IP address to clients, regardless of which SSID they've connected to. Nodes are capable of assigning 1,022 total IP addresses.

If you'd prefer to use the DHCP server on your LAN, you can enable Bridge mode on any SSID (one by default; multiple if you enter a VLAN tag). With this enabled, we'll forward all requests to your internal DHCP.
