[Windows] DHCP scope for Wireless Access points

DHCP is running out. I’m 90% full. I’d like wireless devices to be on a different subnet. I currently use Cisco WAP4410N Wireless-N Access Points.
Is there a way I can create a new scope in DHCP and some how make it so only my APs use it?

My DHCP server is Windows server 2008 R2

I don’t need step by step instructions, if there is a way to do this can you point me to an article on how to do it.

1 Solution
Create a separate VLAN / DHCP subnet for your wireless traffic. Attach your ap to that vlan (plug in to an interface programmed for that vlan on your switch) add the ip helper address for your new vlan at your layer 3 point in the network to get back to the dhcp server.
