Connecting a Cisco Small Business pro to a small business Server

corecc used Ask the Experts™
Hi Experts

I've just got a Cisco Small Business pro router (SRP 527W) which I want to connect to my sbs 2008. Im running DHCP on my SBS 2008, so need to disable DHCP on my router, however there dosnt seem to be the usual option to just disable DHCP. I'm guessing this may be due to the type of router it is as It has IP phone functionality built in.

I'm guessing the key to achieving what I want here is to setup a VLAN with a static IP instead of IP assigned by DHCP, but this is where I get lost, any advice on networking with VLANs and how to best to configure for my setup would be much appreciated.

I did a google search of this router/firewall and found a manual here.

Page 163 goes over DHCP settings.


Thanks for you comments Cincy, Ive got that manual and have searched the whole document for info on DHCP, if you look at the screen shots you can see that there is no option to disable DHCP.
Got it working now, you do have to use a vlan if you dont want to have a dhcp server running.
