Yep,
I would like to establish a new DHCP Server in my LAN and would like to disable the DHCPD running in the AirPort Extreme. The AirPort Extreme will remain being the Default Gateway and my DNS Proxy. I just want all clients to access a different box in order get an IP address.
Does anybody know, how I can switch off DHCP in Airport Extreme?
Thx!

    I'm not sure I understand your posts.

    DHCP can be disabled on the AirPort Extreme very simply.

    Airport Utility > Manual Setup
    Click the Internet icon
    Connection Sharing = Off (Bridge Mode)

    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.

    This method: http://macnugget.org/projects/aebx/ seems a reasonable workaround. I haven't tried it yet tough.
