It can help to have a good/known DHCP server for troubleshooting. I've used various Cisco (router, switch or AP), Mikrotik, and Ubiquiti devices as DHCP servers in the past without service issues. My main DHCP server is actually an old web server running Ubuntu 8.04 on a 32-bit HTPC box. Just having decent DHCP server logs and a router or managed switch with decent logs and some basic interface metrics for your physical or wireless connections can eliminate a lot of uncertainty.
I've got a couple Ubuntu 16.04 boxes running on low power hardware that don't seem to have issues with leases. -- Ken _______________________________________________ PLUG mailing list PLUG@lists.pdxlinux.org http://lists.pdxlinux.org/mailman/listinfo/plug
