Currently Being ModeratedMay 2, 2010 10:27 AM (in response to Thomas Halenbeck)Finally found an information in the net - its not possible. As soon as you use a AirPort to access the internet, its dhcpd will be enabled.
As this prevents me from having a own dhcp-server, this will be the knock-out for my AirPort Extreme.Alu iMac 24" 4GB and several other stuff, Mac OS X (10.6.2)

DHCP can be disabled on the AirPort Extreme very simply.
Airport Utility > Manual Setup
Click the Internet icon
Connection Sharing = Off (Bridge Mode)

The AirPort Extreme will remain being the Default Gateway and my DNS Proxy.
What you want to do is not possible. You can disable the DHCP server in the AirPort Extreme base station (AEBS) but it will also disable the use of the AEBS as the default gateway and DNS proxy.MacBook Pro 2.8 GHz 15" 4GB, Mac OS X (10.6.3), iMac Alu C2D 2.4 GHz 24" 4GB and 20" 2GB, iBook G4 14" 1.42 [1.5GB]
