I know very little about subnetting. I have taught myself everything I know about Networking which is not too much.
Currently, I have 2 DC (windows 2000) with DHCP Services on them.
Our Workstations are using mostly Static IP addresses but now we have a lot of people brining in PDA's along with Laptops (to connect to our wireless) so I have had to increase the number of reserved IPs for DCHP.
We are running out of IP addresses and I am not sure what to do to increase them.
DC1 DNS: 192.168.0.2
DC2 DNS: 192.168.0.3
Subnet is 255.255.255.0
What would happen if I manually changed the DHCP/DC Subnets to 255.255.0.0 ?
Will I have problems with DNS?
Do I then have to edit the DCHP Sever reservations?
Do I also have to manually change the Static IP Machines Subnets to match?
On My Router/Gateway: 192.168.0.1 I have included a snapshot of the subnetting options. When you see the choices for Subnet Mask I don't see an option for 255.255.0.0
What would I need to change on it?
Treat me like Michael Scott (the office): Explain it to me like I am an 8 year old, ok now explain it to me like a 5 year old :)
Thank you For the Help
