Hi, I am evaluating a WiFi feature with CYW4343, using WHD driver. I see a DHCP server implemented there. And, I take it to provide IP to the station nodes (when the Host is acting as AP). correct ? Basically, the zephyr framework does not have DHCP server implemented, so temporarily, will it work if a particular IP is assigned. or any workaround to skip DHCP server implementation ? any suggestions.

Thanks,

@aniruddhann

Yes, the DHCP server assigns IP addresses to the station nodes. DHCP server is implemented in wifi-mw-core library, not in WHD. When you have multiple stations connected to AP then DHCP server dynamically assigns IP addresses but If it's just one station, I believe it will work by assigning a particular IP address.

Thanks,

Phanindra
