No. But if things are setup suitably, you might turn off the router's
own DHCP server and have one running on some other host (which could be
Linux) provide the service. Most likely it would require that the
"router" part of the appliance be bypassed, but a real router might
also be configured as a DHCP proxy (or is that referred to as a
forwarder? prolly depends on whose cert you're studying for :( ). I'd
be surprised to find any of the popoularly-priced "router" appliances
able to do that, but it's not inconceivable.
I was playing with getting that setup in order to put the wireless
subnet behind No-cat auth or some such, but that project stalled for
lack of pressing need and too much competition for my time. :-)

Truth in advertising is like leaven, which a woman hid in three
measures of meal. It provides a suitable quantity of gas, with
which to blow out a mass of crude misrepresentations into a form
that the public can swallow. - Dorothy Sayers, _Murder Must Advertise_
