I have had a task dumped on me and am a little out of my depth.

We have a new EFM service, which is connected to a RAD Network termination Unit; in turn this is connected to a Cisco 887VAM router, which in turn is connected to a TP-Link TL-SG1024 switch.
I can connect any computer to the switch and can connect to the internet as long as I assign each one of the 5 static IP addresses I have.
How do I get it so that I can connect more computer and have them detect a generated IP address?
I gather this is to do with DHCP at the router but I don't know where to start.

Any help?

thanks,
Matt

Do you all own the 887 or was that provided to you by your ISP? Who did the initial configuration of the router? Do you have any Cisco IOS experience?

88u was supplied by ISP (Talktalk business).
By initial config I am assuming that was when the circuit was brought live by a third party who connected to the router remotely.
Cisco IOS experience? No.

Zx1pguy, thanks for trying to help. Just had engineer walk in who is fitting another router and setting both up. Nobody had bothered to mention to me that they were coming or even that more equipment was to be installed.
Cheers,
Matt.
