I have a problem that I have been chasing for a while where no Raspberry Pi on my network will get a DHCP assignment over Ethernet. WiFi is OK, but I am tired of setting up all of my Raspberries with static IPs.
On my home network, I have 45 devices. Most are on WiFi/DHCP, and a few are on Ethernet/DHCP. My servers are on Ethernet/Static IP. Only the Raspberry Pis are giving me a problem of getting an IP by DHCP over Ethernet.
It is entirely possible that my crap of a router provided by Verizon (FIOS) doesn't like the Raspberry Pi. I have an NAS device that also has a DHCP server, but it is currently disabled. In order to rule out the DHCP server in the router, could I somehow tell this Raspberry to use the DHCP server on my NAS? (Can I even run more than one DHCP server on my network?)
