Hello friends! In my today’s post, I will tell you how we can use a router as a DHCP server. If you don’t know what is DHCP server then click here to know. In this post, I will only use 1 network, how we can use the same process with 2 or more network that I will mention in my next post  So let’s not waste time and get started…..

# now click on the router > config

# click on FastEthernet0/0 and give it a IP address let’s say 1.0.0.1

assign an ip address

# again click on router > cli

# write the codes given below:-
 Router(config)#ip dhcp pool thevtech
 Router(dhcp-config)#network 1.0.0.0 255.0.0.0
 Router(dhcp-config)#default-router 1.0.0.1
 Router(dhcp-config)#exit
