    Hello again!

    I currently have a home network which stretches between two households. Each of these households has an internet connection.
    • The computers in each house wish to only use the internet connection for which they are paying.
    • There is one router in each house, but only one is running a DHCP server.
    • All computers are on the 192.168.0.* subnet.
    • The computers which are set to recieve IP from DHCP recieve gateway and DNS of, the computers nextdoor are set to static IPs with gateway and DNS of

    So, at the moment, I have to set all my neighbours IPs to static so they only use their gateway, and I let my computers use the DHCP server to connect through my gateway. This is a pain, as they aren't too tech-savvy and I'd rather have all their laptops (and mine) just use a DHCP server.

    Is it possible to configure a DHCP server to allocate the gateway and DNS of certain MAC addresses to be, and for others to get

    Currently running DD-WRT micro on one router, but if I need to run the full version I'll upgrade the router and do it. But is any of this possible?
