    Is it possible to disable DHCP only for wireless devices? Can't find anything in the manual or FAQ.
    Can I have the DHCP server enabled for my LAN but disabled for wireless? The router status screen shows DHCP enabled for both LAN and wireless but no option to disable it for one of them.

    Why do you want to enable dhcp only for wired clients but not for wireless clients? This doesn't make sense to me.

    I you want your wireless clients to have fixed ips, you can use static dhcp for this purpose. For example:

    Enable DHCP on the router.

    Starting IP Address:
    Maximum Number of DHCP Users: 50

    Under Administration enable "Dhcpd". And enter the names, mac-adresses and ips of your wireless clients. 00:00:00:00:00:00 Wireless1 00:00:00:00:00:00 Wireless2

    Now setup all your computers to use dhcp. Your wired clients will get dynamic ip adresses from the ip range and your wireless clients will get the fixed ips, specified on the administration page.

    Just be sure, that the ips specified on the administration page are outside of the dhcp range secified on the setup page.
