Unable to disable DHCP server on router


  • I use pi-hole on my local network to provide DNS/DHCP as this gives me local name resolution, custom domain and network traffic control/blocking.

    Unfortunately the Amplifi Alien doesn't allow you to shut of the DHCP server on its own, only method is to put the device into bridged mode which turns the device into nothing more than a fancy AP.


  • Something you can do is

    1. Configure DHCP scope to have a single address.
    2. Make a static reservation for that address and assign it to 0f:0f:0f:0f:0f:0f.

    That will prevent it from handing out any addresses, allowing your pihole server to run the show.
