Re: I want my DHCP back!
said by dslx_nick:Pretty sure its because now you guys are just reselling AT&T where as in California before you had ATM connections to AT&T where you could actually bring the circuits over and be routed through your network using your (dhcp) servers. From what I have seen even in california now you guys just resell AT&T so routing is AT&T (not dslextreme) and no more DHCP.
Mainly just a hardware issue; more servers which are configured for PPPoE than DHCP, so as more and more people sign up for DSL, the DHCP servers tend to run out of room faster than the PPPoE. So, putting new connections on PPPoE helps balance the load out... doesn't mean we have no DHCP room left, but default behavior right now is to fill up the empty room on the PPPoE side first.
I have serious doubts that the reason is for what you stated.
300/150 mbit Bonded Verizon FiOS connection FTW!
Oookay...? Well, you're welcome to believe what you will, I suppose. Regardless, we do have DHCP connections, and if raytheon wants to send me a PM with his info, I can see about getting him his DHCP connection back.

I have an AT&T phone line and confirm that DHCP is working fine with DSL Extreme. Not really sure what some of you are talking about. That said, if DSLX is forced to stop supporting DHCP connections because of ATT, that would be very disappointing. Don't want to go back to PPPoE troubles. DHCP no problems whatsoever.
