Multiple Scopes on One DHCP Server

Medium Priority
578 Views
Last Modified: 2010-05-18
I have a DHCP server with the following infomation:

Range: 164.51.33.129 to 255
Subnet: 255.255.255.128
Router: 164.51.33.129

DHCP/WINS: 164.51.33.182

It is currently full and I have been given another range: 164.51.131.1 to 164.51.131.30 with subnet mask 255.255.255.224.  It has the same router address: 164.51.33.129.  The first one is currently full and I assumed that it would fall over to the second one which is not happening.  Someone please give me some advise to what i am doing wrong.

You can't have the same router IP because it is on a different subnet than the address range.
.129 is within the first range of addresses only.
This is not going to be an easy task because without a router or something to route packets between the two subnets, you won't be able to work.
If you can get the rest of the full /24 block, you can then use all of the addresses between .1 and .254, mask 255.255.255.0, and keep the gateway the same 164.51.33.129

Let's say that I did have the 1 to 254 range.  Once that runs out, what are my options got get more IPs?
