How do increase the range for static ip network without causing conflict. i have a network that uses  static ip with x.x.x.x/128  network . i have run out of ip addresses i need to add atleast 15-50 more extra ips. how do i change that on the dns server without causing conflict. and how do i change that on the router. i do not want to change my network to dhcp. i want to maintain it the way it is. can give me the step by step instructions and give examples of what range i would need to move on to.

Hello Cchibonga,
DNS Server is just a name to IP conversion mechanism. Incase you are out of addresses, changes in DNS will not help it. What you need to look at is your own IP scheme. Also, you got me a lil confused by providing your IP range as  x.x.x.x/128.
Can you please provide more information on your Network so that I can be more specific with my answer. If it is internal, you dont really have to worry about security...:)
Also, depending on the IP scheme, you might have to make some changes at the router level as well.
