I don't think you can do it on that model. You can check under the menus in the advanced tab when you go to http://192.168.1.1 But there are certain admin options that can only be changed by tier 2 tech support on our end (and I don't know for sure that this is one of them). You might end up having to grab the modem's serial number and lodging a support ticket with the call centre.

You would need to speak with us and we disable it from our end from our tools. A CSR might not know what you need done as DHCP isnt something that is taught.

I would recommend ditching it as it is so locked down you can't even change the DNS on it. Pick yourself up a cheap TP-Link if you are on a budget, it would be a lot better than the Station. I've put ours back into it's box long ago and went back to using the trusty HG556a. Even the wireless is better with the HG556a.

What exactly is your setup?

The device doesn't act as a modem, it acts as a router. If you disable DHCP what on your network is going to be handing out DHCP? Are you planning on plugging yet another router behind this which will cause double NAT?
