10.5: Disable DHCP-specified DNS servers
Authored by: Neville Hillyer on Apr 24, '09 02:15:27PM

For some years I have been happier with fixed IPs. Whilst I am supplied with a fixed internet IP at no extra cost this is not necessary in order to get away from DHCP on a typical home network. I have a Netgear DG834G router at 192.168.0.1 which is set up to work with the following Leopard network settings:

Configure: - Manually
IP Address: - 192.168.0.10
Subnet Mask: - 255.255.255.0
Router: - 192.168.0.1
DNS Server: - 212.139.132.6, 212.139.132.21

I believe in copper and hence wireless is only used occasionally for my children's laptops.

I don't understand why so many people use wireless and/or DHCP and then complain about the consequences. In many cases it would take them less effort to set up local fixed IPs.
