TP-Link TD-W9980 Issue
« on: October 14, 2019, 11:34:16 AM »

Hello all you helpful peeps!

I have a TP-Link W9980 following recommendation from lots of people on here and it has worked flawlessly for a number of years.

However, in the last couple of months, an annoying bug has appeared where it will randomly turn on the DHCP Server. It is being used on a M$ SBS 2011 server environment so the SBS server handles DHCP etc.

Obviously, when it re-enables the DHCP on the TP-Link it has the effect of major IP conflicts!

I can't figure out what is triggering it and wondered if anyone had some pointers/ideas?

Thanks guys & girls

Not sure why it keeps enabling itself, but can't you change the range of IP addresses it can give out so that even if it turns on it doesn't issue a conflicting address?
