I have a little problem and trying to figure out the best way to set this up. I am going to try to explain this the best that I can.

Building A - has the T1 line for internet access and contains all the servers. The servers and all the users in this building are connected to a standard 24 port switch. Also connected to the switch is a fiber line that runs outside to a tower. On that tower is an outdoor wireless access point with an omni-directional antenna. The access point is connected to the 24 port switch which is all on the 192.168.0.0 subnet.

Building B,C,D and E all have unidirectional antennas that connect directly to the tower. They each basically have one main switch that the wireless access point that connects to the main tower and the other computers are all plugged in to.

I would like each building to be on a different subnet. For example:

Building A - 192.168.2.0
Building B - 192.168.0.0
Building C - 192.168.1.0
Building D - 192.168.3.0
Building E - 192.168.4.0

I also want the DHCP server to be able to assign all addresses for all networks using reservations.

Is this possible and how would I go about doing this?
