I have set up a linux box (centos 7) to use for virtualizing some servers. I have set up a bridge, but I need to do it with DHCP, but it doesn't seem to like it. The reason I need DHCP is because static IP addresses don't seem to go through my crap xfinity cable router. Sometimes they can talk with the other computers, but I can't access the internet at all.
Yes this box needs a static IP; I have set it up in the router, but it needs to do DHCP to get it.
I have also tried setting up a static IP on the bridge and then having a subinterface that gets a dhcp IP, but it didn't seem to want to work; however, I was able to get a DHCP interface with a static subinterface to work on another computer (debian--of course I haven't restarted this computer yet, and that might break everything).
Any suggestions? Would adding some static routes help? I tried a few and they didn't seem to work, but I may have just not been doing them right.
