On a home network, which device is most likely to provide dynamic IP addressing to clients on the home network?
- a dedicated file server
- a home router
- an ISP DHCP server
- a DNS server
Explanation: On a home network, a home router usually serves as the DHCP server. The home router is responsible for dynamically assigning IP addresses to clients on the home network. ISPs also use DHCP, but it usually assigns an IP address to the Internet interface of the home router, not the clients on the home network. In businesses, it is common to have a file or other dedicated server provide DHCP services to the network. Finally, a DNS server is responsible for finding the IP address for a URL, not for providing dynamic addressing to network clients.
