Can i get more than 254 IP addresses with a Draytek? or do i need a seperate DHCP server?
I have never used the following eqipment so it is all new. I am trying to put in a wireless network that 400 may need to use going up to 600users for light browsing on phones etc. I have 10 Netgear WNDAP360 already with a Netgear WMS5316 management device. This is linked to a Draytek 2830n. I need to be able to assign more than the stndard 254 block of IP's.172.16.0.1 - 172.16.3.254 / 252 would give me 1022 addresses. Can i use a 172 address?
How or can i do this with the Draytek 2830n and using a class b range for internal use? will the draytek know or will i have to deploy a DHCP server? can you set the WMS5316 as a DHCP server? Can i use the following?
Router IP: 172.16.0.1 / 255.255.255.252
DHCP: 172.16.0.50 would the dhcp know to issue after 0.254?
