Question DHCP Gateway for IPTV?


For anyone else who has replaced the Aliant router and has IPTV service, are you able to obtain a gateway address via DHCP on VLAN 34?

I can get an IP lease, but no gateway is assigned.

Looking at someone else's stock Aliant config, it isn't pulling a gateway from DHCP either.

Interestingly, his IPTV address range is different from mine, both in same Province. All of the IPTV addresses I've read about here are different as well.

Anyone have any idea how the gateway for IPTV is assigned / how this is supposed to work?

I vaguely recall that there isn't one exactly. Instead the DHCP server pushes routes using the classless static route mechanism, which contain the gateway.
