I have a DNS server on my LAN that the machines in our office need to use.
Some of these machines are laptops which get taken out of the office regularly, so it causes problems if we hard-code the address of the DNS server on these machines.
I was advised to set up a DHCP server to get around this problem, but I'm not sure where to begin with such a task.
If my router already has a DHCP server, I imagine that would be easiest, but I don't know how to check for such a thing or what I would do if I were to find it. Otherwise I just need to set a DHCP server up on my Linux server.
So I guess my question is: is it likely that my router has a DHCP server, and how do I check?
