    You should be able to take it out of DHCP mode.

    D-Link that is new turned into a SW is connected by LAN port to the other
    device LAN port. You'll need to set the Device IP of the D-link to a
    static IP of the other device so that the machines on both devices can
    share resources and access the Internet.

    You should call D-link Tech support for the proper setup of the D-link

    The above is what I did to connect the Linksys BEF11S4 router that was
    turned into a wireless SW and connected into the WatchGuard SOHO 6.
