It is not. I routinely use hostapd for access for my iPod. I use static addressing and don't run dhcpd. > > Since this device is router I must be > > able to serve DHCP.

Again, I tend to not make much use of DHCP except when traveling. If I am on a "known" network at work or home, I static address everything (including the iPod and my laptop). I don't need (or run) dhcpd for my use. -- R. Kevin Oberman, Network Engineer Energy Sciences Network (ESnet) Ernest O.
