Multiple DHCP environment

Does anybody know how should I assign certain DHCP server to the Linux as a client? I got two different wireless signal in my house but my linux always choose the wrong one. So I am wondering to know how could I modify the Linux setting in order to get the access from certain DHCP server?

If the dhcp server you want to use can also be your gateway/router, then try setting GATEWAY in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-<interface name> to the IP address of the dhcp server. The dhcp server and your machine should also be on the same network.

Hope this helps.
