Re: DHCP

Helo brihy1. DHCP on your FIOS combo device should NOT remain enabled UNLESS, you have VOIP phone services and TV services. Disabling DHCP will cause those services not to function. I am a FIOS customer as well.

Re: DHCP

You have misunderstood. DHCP must remain enabled on your ISP device UNLESS, you have it set in bridged mode making it just an access point. Core will then use its internal DHCP to route IP addresses on the entire network. I apologize if I confused you.
