DHCP Scope Limitation for Cisco 851

waforbes100 asked
Last Modified: 2012-08-13
1. I am using a Cisco 851 router for DHCP
2. I am leasing a 25-bit subnet mask (126 available addresses)
3. The Cisco851 router refuses to lease more than 48 addresses for this scope
4. Additional devices can only get an IP address when one current host is powered off.
5. Note that "sh ip dhcp pool" shows only 48 leases from a pool of 126 IP addresses.
Is this a default behavior that can be fixed by configuration?
