DHCP support question

I have verizon as my ISP and they provided a router that provides DHCP. What is a recommendation to switch the DHCP server from the router to zyxel XGS2210 switch? Is this even possible.  I have the switch connect on a static IP on the existing router?  Do I need to call zyxel support to get some help?  Let me know. Thank you.

    If your switch static IP has the same subnet as your router's DCHP pool, then should be fine.

    Hi @new_switch,

    XGS2210 doesn't support DHCP server. If you are looking for a switch that can be a DHCP server, please consider XGS4600. If you just need to dynamically assign IP to different VLANs you can use DHCP relay with XGS2210.

    Best Regards
