Draytek 2830n V2 - Can't disable DHCP

Hi All,

I am trying to disable DHCP on our draytek as our server manages it - but everytime I apply the settings about 10 minutes later it turns back on on it's own and starts handing out IP's again, I have upgraded the firmware and setup the router from scratch so I'm thinking maybe something else on the router is needing the DHCP so turning it back on.

Has anyone experienced this before?

Here is the settings I am applying

Use Wiresharck To monitor Network Traffic ,  It Will Give More details , you can monitor the DHCP requests ....

Whitout the logs can't Help much ,Shooting arrows in the dark here .... if you want the Dhcp not to work, you can set static Ip's to the other network computers ...

you can try Disabling Ipv6 on the computers

it can Be An old driver Issue on the Computers

Ps:It's kind of weird , to set an Ipv4 adress on Ipv6 tab , Draytek router's are strange !!!

ended up swapping the draytek with a brand new one - same firmware - copied a clone file and it no longer happens, no idea what was wrong but have sent it back to draytek as they didn't have an answer either,
