Disabling of local DHCP so that a win2000 DHCP can be used instead

At home I have a small LAN with ADSL.  I presume it is the broadband modem/router, or whatever it is called that has inbuilt DHCP and DNS servers I presume. (I am not so sure about the DNS server - is that in the router or on the web?  Anyway they make it possible for the LAN to function.  Understood.  I want to run my own DNS and DHCP servers under 2000 advanced server.  I know you cannot have 2 DHCP servers using the same range of addresses.  Must I and how do I disable my home routers DHCP before running the 2000 server DHCP??

Some links to cisco documentation to your product. The easiest thing to do would be to contact whoever set it up, and get the password. It can be reset depending on the version of it's cmos, but not without some work on your part. Have a good read of the following:

Installation Procedures
Configuration Procedures for the Cisco 67x
Password Recovery Procedure for the Cisco 6xx CPE

It will be in the setup of your modem/router

what the IP address of the router (for example mine is

I manage my router via a web interface so open a web browser and go to      <insert your router IP instead

or      <insert your router IP instead

this will let you disable DHCP on the router

can you Start >run >cmd {enter}

telnet {enter}

or is there any software that came wih the router to manage it?

what router is it?
Alistair7Author Commented:
That seemed to work

Now its asking for a password.

Its a Cisco 667i

I have tried "password" "admin" and "1234"

Did you set this up yourself? If so, and you don't recall setting a password, just try hit enter when prompted for password,

If not, you may need to contact whoever did set it up,

I tried hitting just enter.

Assuming your OK with the router's password...(Debs last link is the propper one for you to follow)

If Pete's solution wont work;

You CAN do the following:
Configure your Windows 2000 as a DHCP Server and commit a DNS forward by configuring the DNS entry through the DHCP, to your Modem/Router IP WAN address At the Router Disable all DHCP services for the LAN (Not the WAN).

There you have it

Good luck

I received this broadband router through the post from a broadband provider and just plugged it in.  Nothing has been accessed or modified since it came 2 years ago.  So I don't understand why it has a password.  Could the provider have preinstalled certain settings and then used their own password?
If the blank password doesn't work and it's handling dhcp then they must have, which is most irritating for you. You could try a call to them - they may well have a default password that they use, probably worth a try before you have to go through a procedure like password recovery,
