How can I set a gateway with DHCP activated?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



I have to use DHCP because of administrator limitations. To have internet access I must route all trafic to my gateway. The problem is, that I can't modify router settings at the network-settings-menu, when DHCP is activated.


At the moment I use the route command from a terminal, what works. But, there must be a mac-gui-style-way. ;-)


Any ideas?


Thank you

Specify the default gateway on your routers DHCP config.

That's my problem, because the DHCP-Server in our students-hostel sets a router/gateway, but this gateway isn't the correct one. So, I need to overwrite this setting, because it's absolutely necessary to obtain the IP address from the DHCP server.


Thank you
