DHCP in regards to broadband will allow your ethernet device to fetch it's configuration from the DHCP device, such as a cable modem. Configuring an EnGarde system to work with a cable modem can be done easily.
Make certain the cable modem is connected to the ethernet card that is set up for DHCP via the cable supplied with the modem.
Next make certain the ethernet interface connected to the cable modem is configured for DHCP. If this was not done at installation time it can be configured from the WebTool.
After logging into the WebTool select the System Management option. Following that select Network Configuration. At this point the ethernet interfaces in the EnGarde system will be displayed. A static or PPPoE device can be changed to a DHCP device from here. Refer to Section on page for details on how this is done.
The DHCP configuration is now complete. There are now some general configuration requirements that will need to be made. These can be found after the PPPoE Requirements section on page .
