Does Verizon FIOS use DHCP?
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) is not related to PPPoE and is by default always used with your Verizon or any other residential broadband network.
How To Release DHCP On Verizon Router
Verizon routers provide DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) connectivity via a connection to your home network. This is a great way to ensure your devices are connected to the internet and able to access resources on the router. Here are some simple steps you can take to release DHCP on your Verizon router.
Step 1: Connect To Your Router
The first step for releasing DHCP on your Verizon router is to connect to it. This can be done by connecting to the router either with an Ethernet cable or via a wireless connection. If you choose to connect with an Ethernet cable, make sure it is securely plugged in. You can also disconnect any other devices that are connected to your router.
Step 2: Log Into Your Router
Once you have an established connection to your router, you will need to log into it. This can be done through the router’s IP address or domain name. Both of these can be found in the router’s manual or by searching your router’s settings in your web browser.
Once logged in, you will be able to access the router’s settings and make any necessary changes.
Step 3: Release DHCP
Once logged into your router, you will need to locate the settings for DHCP. This is usually found in the router’s system settings or under the networking tab. Once there, you will need to select the option to “Release DHCP”.
Once this is done, all active connections will be disconnected from your network. This will allow any new devices to connect to your router without issue.
Step 4: Reboot Router
Once DHCP is released, you will need to reboot your router to ensure that all changes have taken effect. This can be done by powering off the router and then powering it back on.
Once the router has booted up, you will be able to configure your DHCP settings again or allow your router to assign IP addresses automatically.
Releasing DHCP on your Verizon router is a relatively simple process. By following the steps outlined above, you should be able to easily release DHCP and get your devices connected to the internet once again.
