DHCP Lease Time

I know you can set the DHCP scope but is there a way to set the lease time?

    No, there is not an option to set the lease time.

    Out of curiosity, why are you wanting to be able to configure that? I know the reasons for having lease times but those really only seem applicable in larger business environments.

    Just curious why that feature isn't exposed. I am looking for a way to limit connections given our low bandwidth Comcast connection. One option is a small DHCP scope to limit the connection count and a short lease to release unused IPs. This is for a small church. We have a 3 services, so most attendees are using the connection for 2 hrs or so and then leave.

    Hey StChrisAdmin --

    You can narrow the scope in Menu => Network Settings => Advanced Settings => DHCP & NAT by scrolling down to "Lease range" and modifying the Start and End IPs as I have done in the attached screenshot. The client lease time is four hours by default (which may meet your needs) but we haven't exposed a way to modify it. Once the four hours is up and if the address is no longer in use, it will return to the lease pool.

    Can we please, pretty please, add the feature for customers to choose unlimited DHCP lease times? This will allow for historical and long-term tracking/reporting of endpoint activity.
