Amahi HDA with Netgear Orbi or Linksys Velop Mesh WiFi

Postby rm35583 » Mon Apr 08, 2019 6:28 pm

Good Evening,

I would be grateful for any insight or comment on using Amahi with Mesh-based WiFi such as those provided by Netgear or Linksys. I understated that both these systems can manage the DHCP requirements of a home network and I would like to know how Amahai fits into the equation. DHCP on my current network is managed by Amahi.

Any information you can provide would be appreciated. Thank you for your usual assistance and cooperation.

Regards,

Scott

You could simply disable DHCP on your Amahi server and allow your mesh wifi to hand out addresses. Go to Setup --> Network --> Settings and uncheck the DHCP Server checkbox. You could continue to use Amahi for DNS.
