I have my ISPs DHCP I am using. Can I stop using it and use a dhcp server I have to use on my machine? I would like to use my machine to access a router at my mother’s house to to watch what’s going on. Is there a way to do these two things?
Your ISP’s DHCP controls a list of public IP addresses while your DHCP would be controlling a list of private IP addresses on your local network. Your DHCP wouldn’t be able to issue IP addresses to your mother’s network unless your two networks were linked over a WAN.
