The router is set to automatically assign IP addresses to new wireless devices (DHCP: active). This is the standard procedure used by laptops and mobile devices to automatically connect to a network. If you switch it off, you will have to manually assign an IP address from the 192.168.169.0/24 subnet to your device to be able to connect.
The DHCP Service allows your router to automatically integrate new devices into your network by assigning them a IP address. Set your wireless devices (laptop, mobile phone, etc.) to Obtain an IP Address automatically to take advantage of this service.
